Verified Patient Reviews
I would not recommend this office to anyone. I originally scheduled this appointment a month in advance and got a call confirming my appointment. The night before they called me at 5:30pm telling met that I had to reschedule my appointment for the following afternoon because the doctor does not see patients at 4:45pm even when they had the opening and confirmed with me weeks in advance. I called the next morning and they scheduled me for 3:30pm that day. I arrived at 3:15pm to complete my paperwork, which was done by 3:30. They had me wait until 5pm to actually get into the room and see the doctor only because I had gone up to see what the issue was. There was no major issue, but the doctor had more important patients ahead of me to see. I did not get out of the office until around 5:10pm only because the doctor spend 5 minutes with me. He did not have any pleasantries or even offer to shake my hand, just a gruff I'm your doctor. His hands were freezing and he was extremely rough when he treated me and did not ask if he was hurting me at all. He was likely the worst ENT I have ever seen and I have been seeing them for over 15 years. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
Dr Todd Miller MD took over Dr Sidney Fisherman's Practice and is upholding the 5 Star Rating. Easy to Talk and Transcribes All your Verbal Information before Physical Examination via Lighted Stethoscope. Enjoyed his Professional Recommendations.
It was exactly what I needed. Very professional and knowledgeable. Felt very comfortable with the doctor and he took the time to explain everything to me. If you're a singer or speaker he is definitely the doctor to visit.
I saw Dr. Miller, he was great.
Long time patient because of his skill,and reputation. Vicki
I did not see Dr. Feldman but was given to Dr. Miller who was terrific. Left his office feeling better. Highly recommend Dr. Miller.
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 made a appointment in the morning. So maybe that is why it was such a long wait
Professional and knowledgeable. Zeroed right in on the problem.
I have been going to Dr. Fishman office for years. Good doctor.
He pays attention to detail, takes his time you
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.
Hopeful.... i want to be free of facial, neck, head, pain. Dr. Fishman was reassuring when he said we will figure it out!! Hope so!! 35 years of this and it is getting worse!!
Nice office and staff. A little stronger bed side manner is recommended.
Great! He was very thorough and made me feel a lot better about the symptoms that I was having. Speedy appointment, too! The girls at the front desk are also super nice and helpful, making the visit from making my appointment to leaving the office.
Glad I found a good ENT close to where I live.
It was very helpful what he did help me with the ear pain I hope the medicine he gave helps.
I thought it went well. All the staff were helpful from check-in, getting situated and checkout. Dr. Fishman was very professional and kind. Very straight to the point, which I appreciate.
Efficient and recommended further testing for my vertigo symptoms. Will see again.
There's a $3 minimum parking fee. The doctor seemed knowledgable and the staff polite. No complaints other than the 25 minute wait.
I was very pleased with the visit to Dr. Fishman's office. He was very knowledgeable and did extensive testing regarding the issues I have experienced. The only drawback was about 30 minute wait in the waiting room.
Friendly and professional.
Great MD, to the point and very detailed when it came to the symptoms I was experiencing.
Dr. Fishman always takes care of my sinus discomfort. Greatly appreciated.
Too many patients at the same time so I waited long to be seen by the doctor. The doctor saw me for about two minutes only. He seems in a hurry.
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.
Very through and helpful. He caught an infection that was missed by other Dr. Spoke clearly for my mother - in- law who has hearing loss.
The staff was very pleasant. I was in and out and did not have to wait very long at all. The Doctor was very thorough and knowledgeable with good bedside manner. I felt very comfortable.
Brief meeting with Dr. to evaluate me on first visit. Basically set up some tests and an outline of the approach to be taken for my condition.
I would go back for another visit. I would tell a friend.
Doc Fishman is a great doc, the wait however was ridiculous.
The visit was pleasant and relaxing.The Dr. Listened and addressed all of my concerns.
It was rushed and didn't feel comfortable.
Billing for procedures that were not performed. Filing complaints with fraud department and whatever government organization I can find.
very thorough exam. very limit wait time in exam room, less than 5 minutes. office staff very efficient and well-trained. Knew my questions before I did. took care of other appointments and insurance fast, thorough and explained everything.
very efficient and thorough…technically up to date. Friendly and professional
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.
Very good experience. Personable and intent on helping me with my problem.
He is a wonderful doctor and has a lovely staff. However, the time entering and exiting the office is mostly quite lengthy.
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.
Really knows his stuff, and focused on the problem better than any ENT I've been too.
nothing to complain about, which i like in a doctor visit. short wait time. doctor was easy to understand and not all doctory.hahahha
He seemed like a nice caring man. Very professional. We felt very comfortable with him and confident in his care. He answered every question and was considerate to us as we were a cash patient.
Very professional, straightforward and thorough.
This is one of the most disorganized doctor's offices I've ever been to. I waited an hour to be seen, and when they finally called me back, they couldn't seem to figure out which room to put me in. Nevertheless, Dr. Fishman examined my nose thoroughly, identified the issue quickly, and prescribed a treatment, so I was satisfied with the most important aspect of the visit.
I love the fact that he always listens. Staff members are excellent, wouldn't change a thing :)
I felt like my concerns were listened to, and understood. He spent the be essay time with me to make sure I was helped. Definitely be going back.
Really poor bedside manner. Was facing the computer almost the entire visit. Didn't take the time to explain anything. felt rushed and left unsatisfied with both visits.
Office gals are friendly and efficient. Dr is thorough and kind. Love that I was able to get in the same day because he is pretty busy, especially since he'll be covering patients for another Dr's vacation. Zoc Doc is great, I'm glad he uses it.
Professional staff but very busy office. I had a series of tests done by assistants and waited an additional half hour to see tho doctor again. Felt a little rushed when talking to the doctor, assistants were fine.
dr was fine ,,,its his staff that needs to be more attentive to patient, ,,,doctors might be courteous but if you staff is stuck up, i guess patient will moved on,to a friendly place ,
He seems to know his work well. Very caring especially because my husband has Dementia. We have another appointment.
Dr Fishman is extremely thorough and tries to get at the root of the problem. His office is very busy but he keeps things moving along for you. I loved his helpful team who actually scheduled all my necessary testing appointments right there while I waited. This saved me tons of time and headaches.
EEE... Effective, efficient and expeditious.
I felt good about the overall experience.
Great doctor..efficent and quick. His staff even did things that most dont right there why I was in the office.
Solid. I recommend him.
I thought he was very knowledgeable and professional. He made me feel very at ease.
Staff was very friendly. Dr. Fishman was explained everything and was very competent. I was very satisfied with out visit.
GREAT SERVICE,,,I Arrived a day early for my scheduled appt, but the receptionist and other staff got me to see the doctor less than 30 mins after I arrived, " there's a first time for everything " WOW !
