Dr. Fishman is the kind of physician who treats the whole patient. She connects the physical, emotional and lifestyle dots of one's health.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
For me, the challenge and enjoyment of medicine is applying my medical acumen and skills to the individual needs of each patient. In order to accomplish this, I deeply value time spent getting to know each patient and developing a relationship based upon mutual trust and understanding. From almost 20 years of experience in various medical settings, I truly believe that listening to patients is still the most valuable skill acquired in our training and is one of my strengths. I believe that patients know their bodies best and the ability to carefully listen and observe verbal and non-verbal information is invaluable to understanding a patient and delivering optimum care.
As an internist, I feel privileged to see and guide patients through different stages and challenges of life. I strive to keep patients vibrant and well, work hard to educate them about wellness and prevention and help them navigate the complexities of illness and treatment. I recognize and value that sometimes simply listening and holding a hand may be equally as important and comforting to the patient as making a complex diagnosis.
Overall, my goal is to advocate on your behalf and empower you to play an active role in your healthcare. The better I know you, the better I can accomplish this.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Fishman
Dr Fishman is an exceptional doctor and person - that combination is a rare find- and we are glad she is our doctor!
When my primary care physician of 37 or 38 years retired, I felt like my life would never be the same as she had taken such wonderful care of me. The next doctor, whom I paid a concierge fee to, was a big disappointment. I actually left her without knowing whom would be taking care of me. For someone like me, a bilateral breast cancer survivor with serious lymphedema and a heart patient,… See more
