Ratings for Dr. Ari D. Fishman
Due to an insurance change, I lost Dr. Fishman as a primary care physician. Whenever my insurance renews or changes, I always look to see if I can return. He and Dr. Kressel provided excellent care to me over the years. The staff were always very helpful. I value Drs. Fishman and Kressel for their medical knowledge and contacts. It hurts to point out that "winning personality" is not found here, but when I am unwell I want guidance and healing, not pleasant smiles. It's a busy practice for a good reason, which ultimaltely leads to staff pushed a little bit much, and schedules that slide a bit. Quality somtimes must come with a small price.
I had a DVT this summer, with multiple other blood complications and Dr. Fishman was a phenomenal dr. He is very responsive to requests for appointments and prescriptions, calls with test results (which saves needing another visit to the office), his staff is as friendly as most offices and he spent an hour with me going over my initial case. I guarantee most doctors wouldn't have done that. I also appreciate that I can ask questions, he listens and THEN gives answers as they're needed ...
I had PE ( pulmonary embolism ) on 01/22/09 and live to tell. I went to Dr. Fishman right out of the hospital and have had nothing but a great experience with him. He listens! That alone from a Dr. is great! He is also very patient and compassionate. He even calls the pharmacy for me to have my RX filled. And he calls me as soon as he gets my weekly bloodwork results. I really like him a lot. I appreciate his calm, patient and caring bedside manners. I recommend him to anyone!
This guy is a first rate JERK. Incredibly insensitive and rude. I am a stem cell transplant recipient from an AML diagnosis who has chronic GVHD. He offered nothing helpful. Second time I went he wouldn't even honor my appt and his staff told me I had to reschedule! Cancer survivors deserve better! DO NOT see this doc!!! Staff is unprofessional as well.
