He saved my life twice over. Dr Fischmann's thoroughness and attention to detail is remarkable. Who knew you could find this level of compassion and brilliance rolled into one doctor. If you are tired of having lots of escalating health issues, as I was, Dr George is like a bulldog detective identifying your core problems and in partnership with you try to resolve them. Also I like the convenience of his lab work and other tests being done on site. Thank you for your loving care .

My husband (also a doctor) and I consider George Fischmann to be the very best physician we have ever worked with. His deep expertise, his compassion and kindness, his true connection and concern for his patients are unparalleled. He usually spends 30 minutes with each of his patients, allowing for in-depth discussions on your medical issues. If you are looking for truly excellent care, Dr. George Fischmann is a superb choice.
