My Dr. can no longer prescribe.opioid chronic pain management. Referred to Dr. Fischer. The receptionist said only his nurse practitioner prescribed opioids, so I saw the NP. After waiting 2 hours, the NP saw me and said, "We only prescribe opioids to taper people completely off. We do international treatment." I showed my T1 to sacrum spinal fusion with steel rods x-ray. She winced! "What do you do for this?" Nothing that I wasn't a already doing. I asked for a palliative referral. Clueless.

Dr. Fischer is exactly the what every patient is searching for when it comes to knowledge, ability, patience, and compassion. He is trustworthy and gives a feeling of ease and comfort, which is huge when seeking relief from pain.
Misdiagnoses, not knowledgeable. Extremely rude receptionist.
