      I had a preventive double mastectomy and Dr. Fisher was incredible! She was so personable and was up-to-date on the latest research was assured me even more she was the best choice surgeon for my situation. Her and her team made sure to follow up/visit often during my hospital stay and were very responsive during my healing process! She made sure to explain my options clearly and her demeanor was very calming during the office visits. Definitely recommend Dr. Carla and her team!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
