My doctors nice, but I'm feeling like I'm not getting the help that I need. I'm never gonna hear again. I'm always in pain! And I'm always sad because I can't hear and I can't go out with family and friends cause I can't hear, so what's the point of going!!! I'm too young to not hear and I'm so tired of dealing with the pain!!!! It's so sad!!!

I had previously been treated by two doctors (otolaryngologists) over the past several years for the very ailment which Dr. Fishman is presently treating me and has been for close to a year now. The prior two doctors II no longer see, besides being incredibly arrogant, apparently indifferent, and so it seemed to me at the time (convincingly) that both were most interested in the treatment that would dispose of my case as quickly as possible, neither offered nor even informed me that there were any alternative treatments other than a procedure (the name of which escapes me at the moment) that would essentially deafen and destroy any practical use of my left ear. As a lifelong accomplished musician that was not an option. Though it is substantially debilitated, my left ear is still very useful and necessary even in its severely diminished capacity. Dr. Fishman gets it. He has a well-honed skill rarely observed in physicians in our day. In my opinion, has perfected the art of \LISTENING\"! and he should be awarded a Black Belt immediately! Too bad there isn't more of a demand for that kind of skill in the medical profession. He'd make a great Sensai!"

Dr. Fishman is so efficient with his time, that one could conclude that he lacks empathy. I felt compelled to ask a staff member to affirm his expertise, received the right answer, so choose to focus on the results. So far, so very good. And he was a little more attentive in our second visit...

If Dr. Fishman spent a quality 10 minutes in follow-up visits, id rate him a 10. He always seems as if he has no time. Always. It's disheartening when I have questions, but am not given a moment to ask or recall what they are. I find it best to ask questions through the My Chart App.
