Dr. Fisher was very understanding and patient. He took the time to explain the different surgical options and his ultimate recommendation (laproscopic). He walked me through how it worked and what to expect; I never felt rushed during consultation. Same story before/after surgery. His staff were very helpful and accommodating, even when I had to reschedule my surgery multiple times! I also chose him for his years of experience and that he trains other surgeons.
