Michael J. Fishbein, MD
I first came to Falmouth Hospital in 1983 as an internist with Falmouth Medical Associates. I came back to Falmouth Hospital in 1991 after I finished my residency in radiology. I have been with Bay Radiology ever since. I am among a very small number of radiologists in the United States with board certification in both radiology and internal medicine.
Although the bulk of my 37 year career has been spent at Falmouth Hospital, I have also been fortunate to have worked at an array of hospitals, including some of the most respected academic hospitals in the country. However, I have always been pulled back to Falmouth Hospital. The quality of the medical staff and the dedication of Its physicians and nursing staff are really second to none. Falmouth Hospital is proof that a small community hospital can deliver excellent state of the art care. I know this first hand. When my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and Iwith prostate cancer, we never thought twice about where we would be treated. We received all of our care at Falmouth Hospital and we are grateful for the expertise of the staff and the personalized attention we received.
In addition to my work in the radiology department at Falmouth Hospital, I also have had an interest in international medicine and served 7 years as President of Cape Cares (a group which provides medical and dental care to rural Honduran villages). I have also served as a "guest instructor'' in the radiology department at Haddassah Hospital in Israel.
I have an interest in all areas of radiology, and have a particular interest in cancer imaging as well as diseases of the thorax and abdomen.
It has really been a privilege to have served at such a great community hospital and to be part of such a wonderful community.
