the office overcharged a pre-surgery fee which they were not supposed to do and not until did i call my insurance to follow up did the office send me back my money which they were planning on keeping for themselves thedr. never followed up, is impossible to get in touch with and the office wouldn't give me my surgery results after multiple phone calls. Dr. did not seem to care at all about my concerns and vaguely answered mt questions

This was my first visit with Dr Fishbein and was mostly a consultation, soat this point it's hard to judge the quality of care. His bedside manner was businesslike and slightly brusque, but he seemed to be thorough and competent, andto take my complaint seriously, which is more important. I have tests scheduled with him and feel hopeful that my treatment with him will be helpful.

For a new patient, I felt very confident and the professionalism was awesome. I have to go back for several procedures and I am not hesitant at all. They said I was their family now. Awesome 1st time experience.

He is very knowledgeable. His staff is very friendly. They have a lot of modern technology to help explain things that I would have otherwise had a difficult time understanding. The app for check booking appointments makes it very easy.

Did not take the time needed to review my case. Was not receptive to my input - talked over me every time I tried to speak. Never returned several phone calls. Uses an online patient portal to communicate with patients andif you are unable or unwilling to use this - you'll never get in touch with him. I never got the sense that he put any thought into my case or cared about my well-being.

Dr Fishbein was attentive, thorough in his examination , and knowledgeable about my specific condition. He was perhaps the best Gastroenterologist I have seen.....and I have seen quite a few.

The doctor was terrific - informative, attentive, listened in great detail. He does not exude warmth as a bedside manner but does exude mastery of his specialty and attentiveness to patients, which in my opinion I prefer over a warm doctorwho cannot get to the core of the medical issue with confidence.
