Starts out good ....but it's downhill afterwards!

Sometimes Doctors just work past the golden years and don't care anymore!!Maybe it's was all the false promises that never materialized or all the phone calls I made that were never returned about my testing. It took a month and MANY phone calls just to get my blood test results. Maybe it's the staff that says they sent letters to your insurance company..... but you find out different! No recommendation here at all !

Worst Staff I've Ever Encountered

My first visit with Dr. Fishman was pleasant and professional... once it began approximately 90 minutes after my scheduled appointment. Unfortunately, the level of service provided deteriorated from there. My second visit was marked by a staff that was inattentive, rude, and disorganized. The individual at the front desk (Cecilia, I believe) had no record of my appointment, despite my speaking to her specifically to schedule it less than 24 hours prior. Worst of all, when my pharmacy contacted Dr. Fishman's office to authorize a monthly refill of my medication, their response was to do... nothing at all for two weeks. Despite 2 faxes and multiple phone calls from both Walgreens and myself. The staff finally called me 3 days before a lengthy overseas trip (and after I had exhausted my supply of medication) to inform me that they wouldn't authorize a refill before I visted them again. Would have been nice to know several weeks ago! Now, due to my impending business trip and Dr. Fishman's laziness and incompetence, I'm stuck without medication for a month. Avoid this doctor and his staff at all costs. There are plenty of good options out there, but this is not one of them.
