Convicted of sexual exploitation of patient! – I would give this doctor 0 stars if I could. No matter how could he supposedly is at his job, he was convicted of sexual exploitation of a patient and his 7 years of probation was denied because he did appear to understand his responsibility in the situation. Please take this into account before you visit this doctor. Y
compassionate man – Dr. Fischbein was very compassionate and caring through my surprise pregnancy and difficult miscarriage. I will not forget his kind care.
Amazing doctor who will deliver breech – I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Fischbein!
When I found out I was frank breech at 34 weeks, every other doctor in LA said I would have to have a c-section. While much of the world is now debating whether or not certain breech presentations are dangerous to deliver, most doctors will not deliver them due to of lack of experience and antiquated insurance requirements. Enter Dr. Fischbein. Here is a doctor who has actually been around long enough to be VERY experienced in vaginal breech delivery as well as many other supposed "dangerous" birth situations such as VBAC. Not only is he skilled and knowledgeable in less common types of delivery, but he works directly with midwives and other birth attendants to deliver babies safely at home or in a birth center.
I felt extremely cared for throughout the final weeks of my pregnancy and throughout our amazing home birth. Everything went smoothly and we were overjoyed to have such an experienced physician attend our birth. Thank you Dr. Fischbein for letting our angel come into this world the way she wanted to!
Such a blessing to Have Dr. Fischbein in Los Angeles! – As a Childbirth Educator, Labor Doula, Pre-Natal Yoga instructor and Lactation Specialist I am so grateful to have Dr. Fischbein to recommend to my clients! Whenever a pregnant couple needs a referral, Dr. Fischbein is my first recommendation. He is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, respectful and gracious! His commitment to true informed consent is refreshing and what every man, woman and child deserves!
I wish every pregnant mother could have an OB like
Dr. Stuart Fischbein!
Incredible Doctor. Advocate of Women's Birth Rights! – As a doula, a student midwife and as a woman, I can't recommend Dr. Fischbein enough.
When I had my second child I had a homebirth and needed a back up OB. I had already been a doula working with birthing women in hospitals at that point for 2 years and had unfortunately some pretty negative views on OBs. Upon meeting with Dr. Fischbein, I instantly relaxed knowing that he would not only support the birth plan that I had (natural at home) but would also provide me with great medical back up should a medical need arise. He trusted in my ability to give birth and was very reassuring. I knew that he wouldn't needlessly intervene if we needed his help and care. Thankfully we didn't.
Many years later I find myself working side by side with as a student midwife. His whole hearted belief in woman centered care is inspiring. He practices with a deep trust of women and their ability to give birth naturally and normally without intervention. Yet he has the knowledge, expertise and skill to provide those interventions when they are medically necessary and needed.
If you are looking for a doctor who is willing to actually listen to you and who will actually provide you with information before an intervention, then look no further.
A supporter of vaginal breech birth, vaginal twin births and VBACs along with just normal natural birth.
I highly recommend Dr. Fischbein – Dr. Fischbein was my "back up" doctor for my birth at a birth center. I went over my due date by two weeks and Dr. Fischbein was very supportive of my plans. He collaborated with my licensed midwife to create a highly skilled team of care providers that supported me.
He gave me his advice and if I chose to go a different direction we was respectful. And when my 10lb baby was born two weeks "late" out of the hospital he laughed and said "amazing".
I wholeheartedly trust his medical expertise and I feel that his willingness to speak out for the right to full informed consent only make him a better choice.
I would have Dr. Fischbein as my OBGYN every time.
An Excellent Doctor – I work closely with Dr. Fischbein at The Sanctuary Birth & Family Wellness Center, a midwifery practice in west Los Angeles. I feel very fortunate to have him on our team. He is person of strong integrity, honesty and a superior practitioner. I have my Bachelors in Women's Studies, and know through both scholarly study and experience the atrocities committed on women by a hegemonic medical institution. Stuart does not contribute to these atrocities; he is a champion of birthing women, families and midwives. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
a great doctor – Dr. Fischbein was my back up doctor, but became my main doc as I was faced with a frank breech situation. I found him to be very supportive, and he educated me on all of my options without judgment. I felt very empowered and safe with him. Not many doctors take the time to tell you anything these days.
Living in a lawsuit-happy country, I found him refreshingly honest and passionate about his life's work, part of which is educating women and standing up for women's rights.
My husband and I felt lucky to have found him.
And we have a healthy, beautiful, happy little 6 week old girl. I hope we are lucky enough to have Dr. Fischbein as our doctor the next time.
Best doctor I've ever known – I had the honor of having Dr. Fischbein back my mid-wife in 2000. I had a non progressive labor and was transferred. He met us there and was phenomenal. He knew exactly what to say, stayed with me, assured me and calmed me. He treated me with tender care and respect. I didn't have a regular gyno at the time and so during my follow up appointment, I asked if he would be my doctor to which he answered, "I would be honored." I have never forgotten that and he has provided me with tremendous care over the years. He always goes above and beyond. He is a doctor who truly cares about his patients. He found my cancerous tumor in '07, and again, I could not have had a better advocate. He assured me, he assisted in my surgery and was incredibly supportive throughout that difficult time in my life. He saved my life more than once and I am forever grateful to him. More than anything else, I trust him....with my health, my life, my child's life. Best doctor I've ever had in my life.
Amazing doctor – I have been Dr. Fischbein's patient for more than 20 years. He is an unbelievable doctor who is a trailblazer for alternative birthing. He delivered my child in January of this year - and I was not just happy about the experience, but I am grateful and lucky to have had him assist in the most important event in my life. I am not too concerned with the negative reviews - they seem a little wacky and certainly don't reflect the doctor I have been a patient of for so many years.
