Dr. Fischer fixed my back. When I went in for surgery, the prep nurse told me stories about patients who came in barely able to walk, but walked straight up after surgery. I thought my "microsurgery" would take an hour to hour and a half. When the nurse said my wife could come back about 4:30 PM, I asked her, "how long does this take?" She said, "5 1/2 to 6 hours." They put me to sleep about 9:15 AM. When I woke up at 5:15 PM, Dr. Fischer was right there. I cannot say enough good things

Dr Fischer is an exceptional neurosurgeon. He has operated on both my wife and I who had severe ruptures of discs in multiple levels of our Cspines. We both had exceptional outcomes. My surgery was 20 yrs and my wife's 17 yrs. I also was treated with a lumbar herniation and received facet blocks. Dr Fischer is educated, caring, and always had the best interest and best outcomes for his patients ever in his mind. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to him.

There is an absolute likelihood that I would recommend Dr. Fischer to family and friends. Dr. Fischer is the most caring, thorough, and apparently knowledgable Neurosurgeon I have ever experienced. He takes his time discussing your complaint with you and your family. He is a conservative Doctor, and he prefers medication over surgery. If he does not think he can help you enough with surgery, he will not hesitate to say so and he will not operate. Dr. Fischer is the best Neurosurgeon I have met.

Dr. Fischer was so thorough. He never rushed me, explained x-rays and MRI to my satisfaction. Was very patient and concerned with my condition.
