Patient Comments (4)
in melrose me |
The best at what he does, i've seen many over the years,,,he smart, caring and his patients come first. I could never ask for better
Somerville, MA |
Refuses to return phone calls concerning important test results. Wouldn't recommend this doctor. Very frustrating to deal with
in Wakefield, MA |
Dr Fischer recommendeda sleep study and never contacted me with the results. At my follow up he asked how my CPAP machine was working out. I never received it nor had I been told that he recommended one. He assured me that his staff would take care of it and I would have a CPAP machine in a few days. That was 8 months ago. My symptoms are still present. The thought of calling and pursuing this just depresses me.
Andover, MA |
Lacks patient follow up, latency in returning phone calls causing patients to make several calls in a 2 week period before a return call is made. Makes patients wait for important documents to submit to insurance companies.
