I've had 2 MOHS procedures by Dr Fisher, you can barely see the scars. I've had many basal cells removed in my 50+ yrs. His incision sites look so much better than the others ( can barely see them) which I am incredibly grateful for because they are on my face.

I have been experiencing skin cancer, and have been seeing Dr. Fisher every six months for the past five years, for both total body scans and treatment. I've found him to be exceptionally competent, responsive, empathetic, and easy to talk to. He always takes the time to explain conditions and procedures. I'd rank him at the top of the list of all the physicians of ANY specialty that I've seen in my 71 years of life.
