What People Say About Dr. Alan Fischer, MD

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 Fisher is very knowledgeable about skin problems.He explains everything thoroughly. He is very friendly and has a good sense of humor He also gives all options for treatment. He makes patients comfortable while doing his procedures. I have been going to Dr. Fisher for many years and would not think about going somewhere else.

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.

Very pleasant experience. Dr. Fischer is very knowledgeable and experienced. He took his time to listen to all my problems and I finally got the right treatment after visiting several doctors prior! Highly recommend him!

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.
