Dr. Fider is a very caring doctor, that actually gives you his complete attention when you are with him. He is very understanding and listens to his patients. He is very affordable and is a great doctor. He diagnosed me correctly with several disorders and had me functioning like a normal human being again in just a few visits. I HIGHLY recommend him.
