Professional but very approachable and explains everything clearly
I felt uncomfortable and got the impression I had arrived for my appointment at the end of a 'bad day'. The final analysis of my worsening fibromyalgia pain seemed to be directed at my weight. Went away quite upset with the outcome and nothing positive to take with me.
Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry you were left with this impression, which was never my intention. I am obviously unable to discuss in detail the contents of our consultation on this forum, but I always strive to have a holistic approach to the management of fibromyalgia, which is a difficult condition to live with and to treat. Aiming to be as healthy as possible is essential and this was the message I was trying to get across doing our mid-afternoon consultation.
A wonderful consultant to work with.
Firstly, the consultation took place on time. Dr Fishman listened carefully to my description of my symptoms and carried out a thorough examination. He set out clearly his initial thoughts in language and in terms appropriate to an explanation for a person with limited medical knowledge. He suggested a course of further investigations and some steps I could take to alleviate some of the symptoms. I was very happy with the whole consultation and there were no obvious areas where it could have been improved.
Clear, polite and straightforward
My consultation with Dr Fishman was excellent. He was immensely helpful performing a range of tests on me alongside explaining the likely cause of my pain and also the testing/remedies available to me. I would have no hesitation returning to see him, should the need arise. I highly recommend him.
Dr Fishman is excellent. He took time to listen. He was extremely thorough taking a detailed history and explaining everything clearly. I highly recommend Dr Fishman.
Was very happy with my consultation and the explanation of my problem and the plan moving forward.
Very nice Doctor, easy to talk to. Very thorough and help me understand my condition and what I need to do to control the symptoms.
Excellent Consultant. Explained things easily to understand and also was able to explain another condition I have not related to Rheumatology better that the consultant specializing in the condition did

I have known Dr Fishman as a regional colleague since 2001. He is a highly respected Rheumatologist and General Physician. He has contributed widely to the specialty since he took up his Consultant post. He is one of the few Rheumatologists with experience in the care of children and teenagers with arthritis problems. I would have no hesitation in seeking his advice or recommending him to patients.
