Referred by agility orthopedics. They called to schedule me an appointment after a week still no callback to me. I followed up and after 10 days I just went looking for another doctor. Terrible service. I'd steer clear of this one.

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.

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.
