Dr. was running late. The office was extremely disorganized. I told the Dr. I had a sore throat and he did not swab me. Instead he prescribed me with high strength antibiotics that have a wide range of side effects. After going to this Dr. I feel like my illness was not solved and I have to start over by going to a different Dr. tomorrow. I do not recommend anyone to see this physician.

I was thankful to be seen right away as a new patient. The support staff were very courteous. Dr Fishman though curt was professional, competent and addressed all my concerns. Only negative comment is I had to wait a long time which could be simply because I had the last appointment of the day. Either way thanks for seeing me today and you have a really nice team working with you.

I've been to Dr. Fishman about 4 times now. I would highly recommend him for excellent care. Wait times for me have varied (when it's been busy, I've had to wait more than 30 minutes, but other times, the wait has been less than 5 minutes). The nurses and office staff are efficient and professional (friendly, but not overly chatty, which is a plus for me). Both Dr. Fishman and his staff listen to my questions and answer respectfully.

Dr Fishman's team was top notch! New addressL 3851 Katella Ave (not 3801). They moved 3 days ago and although they were experiencing minor glitches, my service was spectacular. Dr Fishman quickly diagnosed my problem and clarified what may have caused it. I would highly recommend Dr Fishman and his team.

Besides being over a half hour late, even though there were no other patients in the waiting room, Dr. Fishman revealed himself to be fairly grumpy (I have hearing issues I'm seeing him for, but he was irritated when he had to repeat himself once). He appeared impatient, disinterested and unsympathetic when I had questions or offered background info on my issue. He did not ask me if I had any follow up questions and was generally unreceptive to my minimal input. Generally I like doctors, my father is a doctor and most ive been to have been great. This ENT physician had one of the worst bedside manners I've come across. Seemed very burned out on the profession. That said, he was successful in removing a great deal of wax from my left ear. I'll go elsewhere for my aural exam and follow up, though.

Dr. Fishman comes across as a bit gruff, especially when the office is busy, but it is apparent that he cares and is highly competent. I therefore rate his bedside manner as excellent.
