My experience with Dr. Fisher was Excellent!! I went to Dr. Fisher for a growth on my arm, which was Cancerous, and removed, but Dr. Fisher looked at a cut on my nose and took a biopsy that also proved to be Cancerous. It took over two hours to remove it, with Mohs Surgery, and a skin graft. I am so glad that I have Dr. Fisher, this is the third time I have been to him for Surgery and every time has been painless and thorough. Dr. Fisher called me the next day to follow up and kept in touch until the stitches were removed. I would highly recommend Dr. Fisher for skin cancer treatment.

This was my first time for a skin check. I was nervous and scared, but since the moment I walked in the staff was very welcoming and the doctor was truly amazing! He takes his time in explaining and doesn’t mind answering all your questions. He checked from head to toe and didn't make me feel uncomfortable. No doubt I will definitely come back. Highly recommend him!

I will NEVER go to this doctor again, and I absolutely do not recommend him. I have been in pain for several weeks and went to him with what I believe is a returned skin cancer, He showed no comassion or kindness. He did even bother to to get up and look at the wound. When asked questions, he merely said to get a second opinion. Apparently, he is not interested in being a doctor any more. Maybe it is time for him to retire. I had seen him a couple of years ago, and he was fine. NOT ANY MORE.

This was definitely one of the worst doctors I have ever visited. His bed-side manner was not just poor, but downright rude. He completely discounted my own experience with my illness and instead told me to come back when I was in acute distress so he could see with his own eyes. He literally neither said nor did anything that was of assistance, a complete waste of my time.

Upon my first visit the receptionist was very rude. I'm 80 years old. I was confused if she returned my credit card or not after payment, she proceeded to get raise her voice towards me aggressively. I had to ask her to please calm down. Initially meeting Dr. Fischer, I left his office feeling as if my questions were not answered, as there was a serious lack of dialogue between Doctor and patient. I left his care and office feeling worse than I did prior to my appointment with such treatment.

Dr. Fischer is the best dermatologist I have ever been to. He is an excellent doctor, thorough and pleasant. His office does not treat you like a number, as some do. His staff is great and remembers who you are when you arrive. The wait time is minimal, which is always a plus. He will be my dermatologist from now on. I highly recommend him.

Being very susceptible to skin cancers I have been, and still am, a patient of Dr. Fischer's for over 20 years. Not once in all the visits I have made have I had the occasion to be critical of Dr. Fischer and his staff, especially his assistant Claudia. He is very thorough in going over any problems he might find which have been many. I have, in my opinion had too many biopsies that have come back positive and have to be removed. I would rather they come back negative.

Dr. Fischer has been treating our family for many years. I find him most confident in his treatments, cool and calm, and very easy to talk to. Whatever needs to be done is done quickly and efficiently. With many skin cancers to be treated, I trust him to do exactly what needs doing. Thank you, Dr. Fischer for always being there for us.
