Long time Dr, always has time to listen

I have had Dr Fishbein as my PTP for over 20 years. He has always been a good listener to my problems, provided me with what I needed and helped solve some confusing questions. While I don't always see him in the office, his PAs Alison Omel and Tamra O'Nan are great! They have the same attention to detail as he does. And I feel 100% confident when seen by either of them. While I sometimes find it frustrating to get appointments, I don't feel unwanted or overlooked. I would recommend him to a friend.

My husband , Chris, our son, Michael and I have been patients of Family Care Center- Barranca Parkway,  Irvine, CA. with Howard Fishbein. M.D. for over 33 years.

The entire team of professionals,  are cheerful, thorough,  kind, highly skilled, return calls,  follow-up, schedule appointments and etc. Whatever we need, this group responds and timely!    Dr. Fishbein, brillant as he is, also has two top quality brilliant Physician Assistants, in  Allisom Omnel and Tamara O'Nan. Each PA also has an assigned nurse and they too are outstanding..The drs. do not talk down to you, and are very thorough explaining all facets of your condition. Their medical team is on top of all our medications and care. We cannot recommend enough this team, for if you want physicians and a medical team totally dedicated to improving your familys health, we  highly recommend Dr Fishbein, Allyson, Tamara, Brenda, Kelly, Jennifer, Robert,  Alice, Venessa, Tiffany, Desiree, and Linda.
