WARNING:\r
my husband was just refused medical treatment by a neurosurgeon because of a tattoo he got over 20 years ago! We waited over a month for this appointment, and the doctor made us leave... All in front or our three year old!!

I woke up on June 11, 2013 and could not walk. I ended up in the emergency room at Tampa General Hospital. They refused to do an MRI on my lower back after all other test were negative. After almost a month of trying to get my PCP to schedule an MRI(required authorization from insurance) I went to see Dr. Fishman. My appointment was at 9:45, I had my MRI by 5:00. This was a team effort by his amazing staff. It was magical that things started to happen. I went back to see him two days later and he found something in my lower spine and admitted me to the hospital the same day. Operated the next day. Exactly one month after my emergency room visit I found out that I had cancer of the spine. Dr. Fishman saved my life. After seven months of Chemo and one month of radiation I am happy to say I am in remission. With his quick decision and outstanding office team, I can easily say my appreciation to Dr. Fishman and his Staff is endless. Dr. Fishman is a remarkable, talented surgeon and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I was in so much pain and had been to another Doctor to no avail. Went to see Dr. Fishman and in less than 5 minutes he knew what was wrong. He fixed it and I am pain free. Wished I had him for my back surgery! He is fabulous!

If you are looking for a doctor who is knowledgable in the field of neorosurgery, highly skilled and very professional, Dr. Fishman is the one. He takes his time to educate/explain what is going on and describe options available so patients can make informed decisions regarding treatment. His office is run efficiently by people who are friendly, patient and pleasantly professional. The staff/team that work/assist Dr. Fishman during surgery are also skilled, knowledgable and work well together. I highly recommend Dr. Fishman. EJM, Sun City Center, FL

What a great surgery! I have been suffering for several years and was unaware of Dr. Fishman and his outpatient procedure. If I had I would have had the surgery done years ago...

Dr Fishman it the BEST. I was rushed to the hospital and put in ICU and had a 95% chance of dieing and this man walked into my hospital room. All I could remeber seeing was his boots, see I had a cerebral hematoma causing my brain stem to almost completely close. I was in and ot of conciousness and I had such such sever pain that I could not allow light into my room and spent most of my time with my eyes covered. The other Dr's that came in before him all wanted me to have brain surgery but not Dr Fisman he looked at me sebt me for a CT Scan ordered a Angiogram and after reviewing all the information he advised me NOT to have the surgery and that the potential for permenant brain damage with the surgery was almost guaranteed. He told me that the blood that had caused the hematom would eventually disapate and that I would stand a much better chance of a complete mental, neurological and physical recovery if I just left it alone. He stayed with me and kept a close watch over me, he monitored my case, the staff and even other Dr's who came to see me. I for one LOVE Dr Fishman. I can see how one might think that he has a very cocky and rude personality, contrary to some he does care about patients. You have to look past that gruffness and you will see that he is a brilliant man I have been to many other neurologists for follow and they all agree that Dr Fishman's advise was100% correct, including 2 that are the best in their field.

I truly believe this man loves himself more than his patients. I have been to this doctor several times and each time I walked out of there wondering why I was seeing him at all. He has no bedside manner, he acts like he's better than you, rude, and you leave without any sense of comfort. The best decision I ever made was never going back.

PROS: none
CONS: rude, thinks he's all that, uncomforting, no bedside manner
