Unbelievably Poor Bedside Manner

I took my mother to see Dr. Fishkin to get the results of an MRI where cancer was suspected. We waited 45 minutes in the exam room and when he came in, talking about the previous patient! He didn't bother to introduce himself to either my mother or I (she was a new patient). He looked at the computer and wrote Stage IIIb Lung Cancer on the White Board behind him. That is how he told my mother she was terminally ill!! The conversation went pretty much downhill from there. He told her she might live 1-2 years with treatment and when I asked how long she would live with no treatment, he said 1-2 years! My mother opted for no treatment and has relocated to Arizona. I would not take a family pet to this doctor for treatment. His lack of compassion is appalling!

I was so sick prior to seeing Dr. Fishkin. He came up with a treatment plan and my life has changed for the better. I don't have the pain I used to have and I'm able to lead a great life.

First of all the day we went to see about the diagnois we sat for an hour in the office and there was no other patients in the waiting room. We could hear Fishkin in the hall a couple of times joking with the nurses and no one came to see about us.Dr. Fishkin has a very poor bedside manner and we felt as if he was thinking up treatment as he spoke to us.He never told us a treatment plan other than chemo. and just before leaving the office told my husband he would need a shot but didn't explain anything to us first. While talking to his scheduling nurse we also found out about needing steroid pills at the beginning of chemo and chemo counseling but Fishkin never mentioned anything about that to us. Anyway, he never shows a caring attitude to the patient. I'm sure since he sees this type of sickness he may have to put some barrier between him and his patients but there could still be some kind of compassion shown. Needless to say we have not been very happy with his care.
