Specialties

Dr. Vitaly A Fishbein has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

i had unrealistic expectations

I and several other ex customers i spoke to have the same story - this dr doesn't spend enough time with customers. He walks out of the room in the middle of a conversation and never returns. I thought it was just my experience but started talking to other customers and they say the same about him. Some drs read notes before seeing customers. He does it during the appointment, which left even less time to ask questions and for him to explain things. First i thought it had to do with my insurance plan, which didn't pay much but a contract is a contract so he had to take it. Others with better plans had the same experience. Because gastro is such a field where one wrong decision or diagnosis or advise can be fatal, this dr never gave me definite answers. It had to be my choice, my decision. Didn't have complications after tests, diagnosis sort of fluctuated with time. First very bad, then not too bad, then not very clear what i have, what i need, what i don't need, etc. Very unnerving. Then he walks out, never returns, and i just sit in the room and wait. After a while walk out to the front only to find out he's with another customer. I have to tell his staff what he said, what meds he prescribed, etc. I'm no longer with this dr.
