Optimal Health - Dr. Norton Fishmanthis doctor poisons patients and lies

Dr. Fishman seriously injured my daughter with medications for Lyme Disease that nearly killed her. He overtly lied to other doctors who called him to ask him about her treatment, lied to my daughter when she asked if the medication that he was giving her at nine times the normal dosage for a period of 3 years along with a concoction of ill-defined "herbal supplements" could have led to her development of a serious reaction and why Clindomycin was prescribed in addition to Rifampin (which amplifies the effects of other antibiotics) all in dosages unheard of in the annals of the PDR could have been the cause of her developing C. Difficile colitis that took more than one year for her to regain her basic health. He is a liar who will protect his own skin without regard to the patient's best interest! Once she went back to mainstream medicine and dropped Dr. Fishman's insane levels of antibiotics she was able to start healing again. She did not need the antibiotics and witchcraft supplements that he was poisoning her with. Yet we were led to believe that if she stopped those high-powered medicines that she would suffer a terrible relapse from "Lyme" disease again. He lied over and over again to us, to her, to her doctors, to the doctors in the Emergency Room that she visited over and over again as she got sicker and sicker on his poisons. His form of medicine is dangerous. Like a monster, he lied to other physicians to save his own skin -- and all at the cost of my daughter's health. He is a dangerous physician and should be carefully monitored. As an adult, you can choose your own medicine. But, PLEASE be careful NOT to entrust a child to this physician or his medical practice. Beware! He is dangerous!

    There are so many inflammatory accusations in this anonymous post that do not accurately reflect Dr. Fishman's personality or his practice of medicine. Dr. Fishman is a careful, knowledgeable, and experienced physician who works closely with his patients in developing and modifying treatment protocols. He does not lie to his patients or other doctors. This is just not who he is. Besides, Dr. Fishman is an internal medicine doctor who does not see children, only adults.
