Verified Patient Reviews
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, and to 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.
The office staff and nurse were so nice, helpful and answered all my questions. Dr. Fishbein truly listened to me and made me feel comfortable.

Doctor was knowledgable and took his time to understand my issues. The office staff and nurses were very nice and helped you see the doctor quickly.
The staff was friendly, professional and things moved along quickly before going in to see the doctor. The doctor was good about listening to my concerns and gathering history and he was able to go through what he thought the issue might be and explain what the next steps would be. Good visit!
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 and if 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.
Everyone was friendly and helpful. I felt very comfortable and relaxed.
Very nice staff.
I'm in love with how well the whole staff at this medical office attended to me. Everything from the check-in to the consultation with the physician was wonderful. :-)
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. He was accurate and detailed and listened with care. Highly recommended. His office staff was efficient and pleasant.
The staff was very nice. I got in quickly. The doctor explained why he made his recommendation and it was what I was expecting. Happy with my choice.
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 doctor who cannot get to the core of the medical issue with confidence.
Very well organized and professional staff. I was seen right on time.
