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.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
