Dr. Mark H Fishbein has the following 2 specialties
- Pediatric Gastroenterology
Pediatric gastroenterologists can treat a variety of diseases and conditions in infants and children related to their liver, pancreas or intestines. If your child has severe or recurrent abdominal pain, constipation or diarrhea, a pediatric gastroenterologist can help you get to the bottom of it. They can also help identify the many possible causes of failure to thrive in infants.
Other common conditions they treat include Crohn's Disease, inflammatory bowel disease, liver disease, short gut syndrome and hepatitis C, as well as nutritional disorders like celiac disease and lactose intolerance. In order to diagnose and treat your child’s condition, gastroenterologists can perform colonoscopies and other diagnostic testing before deciding on the best treatment plan.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

I recently took my child to see Dr. Fishbein and had a bad experience. Dr. Fishbein lacks one of the most important qualities of a good doctor and that is listening to his patients. He also lacks clear communication skills with regard to explaining his medical opinion. He also had bad bedside manner and was in a hurry. I am shocked that he is on staff at Lurie Children's Hospital.
My daughter has been seen by Dr. Fishbein for four years now. He and his team have been instrumental in helping us coordinate the appropriate services for our daughter to attain independence from her feeding tube, which she has had since infancy. He has always been very professional with us and has cared for our daughter with the best of his ability during difficult medical circumstances.
I was told that this doctor was the best. Wrong - the worst. After waiting 2 1/2 hours for an emergency that came up he spent all of 7 minutes with my son (who had mouth ulcers). He stated that this had nothing to do with him and suggested that I take pictures and send to docs first as to not waste their time and mine. He then proceeded to charge me several hundred dollars for the appointment. I suggested that he take what my insurance paid him and disregard my portion otherwise I would dispute the charges. He proceeded to send the bill to collections. A year and a half later, countless trips to many other types of doctors (because the "GI" portion had been visited), and THOUSANDS upon THOUSANDS of dollars later my son was told he had Crohn's - something that would have been discovered if this man would have done some test!!!! It had everything to do with "his area of expertise", he just didn't take the time to figure it out.
