Patient Reviews (1)
in Philadelphia, PA |
When I shared with Dr. Fischer that I experiencing some difficulty in paying the copays for the additional doctor visits (he was referring me other drs in his practice for follow up- 4 visits in 4 days), he began to berate me, asking me if my son's eyes were worth the money. He then asked me if I bought food for my home and gas for my car and called me 'destitute' in front of my 16 year old WHO WAS STILL SITTING IN THE EXAM CHAIR. He was very judgmental, disrespectful and condescending.
