Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Fishkin was very thorough with his exam and diagnostic. He also was very patient to explain to me the different processes as they were taking place. He also took into consideration that I was working within the confines of an insurance plan and didn't order any unnecessary treatments that would have to attract additional costs. Will definitely return for a future visit.
I am glad I scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Joseph, he took time to do the exam, explain to me clearly, I cannot complaint. Definitely I highly recommend other patients to schedule an appointment with Dr. Joseph.

Heretofore, I ventured into NYC to see the "Top Docs" in the field of ophthamology due to significant vision challenges that the "average" eye doctor could not treat.

Dr. Fishkin was very courteous and prompt. I didn't have to wait very long at all and he addressed all my concerns.
