Unfriendly staff. I forgot my insurance card. Grouchy lady said I could not see him without card. I guess she can't use a computer. I've NEVER had that happen. I waited 2 weeks for an appointment!!!!! Based on her attitude the doctor doesn'the need patients. No problem. HMO gave me another Doctor.

Our insurance requires a $30 co-payment for a specialist, always has. When we arrive for our 3rd visit to Dr Fisher's office the receptionist says hello and immediately reminds me of the 30 dollar co-pay then goes to one of the back rooms, I assume to let the doctor know we have arrived. When she returns she informs me that one of the doctor's colleagues will be seeing my daughter so the co-pay is now $60 dollars. Wrong, one visit, one co-pay, that's how it works. Don't let this guy scam ya!
