SHC Patient, May 2015

Dr. Fischbein an excellent doctor & easy to talk to.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Great Dr. Fischbein feel in the best hands for my mother.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

First appointment - to be followed for surgery, great.

SHC Patient, Dec 2014

The physician assistant and Dr. Fischbein were very thorough.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

The provider is an outstanding surgeon, but this visit did not involve a surgery. Perhaps I should have seen a different provider for my concerns.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Very good.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Only good experiences.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Very good caring and professional with family.

SHC Patient, Feb 2014

Everyone at Stanford was wonderful - polite & respectful, well informed & helpful. My husband & I were so impressed.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

I felt very comfortable with the doctor.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

I brought a CD of my CT scan but he couldn't read it. Later I sent email with directions. He promised to call me with his assessment. It is now ONE MONTH later & he still hasn't called.
