Dr. Martin Fishman's Ratings
I have been to see a few Gastroenterlogist and Dr Fishman is one of the best that I have come across! He is so knowledgable and has a client centred approach. He takes the time to listen to concerns and answer questions. He takes through documentation for my family doctor and other specialist involved. I feel like I am getting the best care possible and that he genuinely cares about his work. I have going to Dr Fishman for a while now and I am always amazed about how much of an effort he makes to be on time for his appts, it is usually close to the appt time or within 10 minutes. I personally love his receptionist, I treat her with kindness and respect and she is the same way in return. I just hope that he doesn't retire anytime soon.
Had a appointment with Dr Fishman at the Richmond hospital this week, it was the first time I meet him and he was very pleasant and had great bed side manners. Before the procedure he came over and introduced himself, and discussed what he would be doing. Dr Fishman kept me updated on what he would do and was amazing!!! Would highly recommend to family and friends. Thanks for being such an amazing person and Doctor!
I went to Dr. Fishman for 2 different problems. 1st first time- Dr. Fishman went golfing & had his staff not cancel appt. so he could bill his appts. Very bad practices!! The 2nd time, he stated my previous gastroenterologist (well known in N.Van w/a high reputation) miss diagnosed me. My N.Van specialist used 2 colonoscapies, biopsies & X-rays to make his conclusions. Dr Fishman made his conclusions without any evidence or physical exams. He claimed "I wanted to keep in my pooh so I had constipation. Fishman is a quack!! His conclusions weren't correct or backed up. Who wants to keep in pooh...that is just too weird. Don't go to him for any issue. If from Richmond go to VGH or Royal Columbian. His knowledge of medicine is quite limited from my experience. Hence, from my experiences from Dr Fishman on two separate times with different issues . He did not remember me the second time around. Do not go to this doctor. I have seen good ones and he is not one of them.
Be careful booking an appointment with this doctor. They do not warn you about cancellations, if you call to cancel an appoinment with this doctor, he will drop you as patient. He is about the money, not the patient. I work midnights and slept late, and called to see if I could rebook, the office secretary told me if I could make it in 40 minutes. I live in South Surrey, and this was at the height of traffic hour. I work across the street at the hospital. They told me to find another doctor where I live. He basically wanted me to break my neck to keep that appointment, there are other doctors that care more about the patient, my suggestion is to use someone else. In my estimation he has an average grasp of his practice, nothing remarkable.
To the poster below. I apologize and meant no harm, only to say that in a Province where it is already difficult to see a specialist, a stern and very efficient receptionist who questions a lot makes it only harder. I am sure she is a nice person and Dr. Fishman is a fabulous physician. No offense was intended. Hope that helps.
I recently saw Dr. Fishman for a colonoscopy. He found a poly so small, that I've since been told by two other doctors that many would have missed it. Thanks to Dr. Fishman, the cancer has been caught very early and I have a much higher chance of making a full recovery. Thanks Dr. Fishman!
I am one of the fortunte patients to be referred to Doctor Fishman. Very professional,and understanding and kind.If you ever need a colonoscopy make sure you see Doctor Martin Fishman.I hope he lives a long time.I'll be going back to to get another one in 5 years. The Staff at the Richmond General Ambulatory (Same Day) Surgery must have be made from the same clay as Doctor Fishman. Many thanks Ladies. Kenny
What can I say....Dr. Fishman is the best doctor I've ever met in my life. He is so warm, friendly, and genuinely caring. However, the receptionist he has has a serious attitude problem. I have found her to be verrry unfriendly and RUDE on numerous occasions. I wish he'd get a new receptionist, then maybe i'll want to come back.
