This entire office is invested in your health.
The US healthcare system is broken in many ways. However at Multnomah Orthopedic, I felt like I was being listened to, my concerns were heard and solutions offered. The front desk is prompt, courteous and patient. Isaac Obeg, PA, was so kind and communicative. Dr. Fischer educated me on my results and had options to fix my pain and range of motion issues that did not include an immediate jump to a surgical solution. I appreciate their approach.

Unreachable office for 4 weeks
My husband has a referral to see Dr Fischer but over the last month he has not been able to talk with anyone in the office. He has called at least 12 times and left messages. Very poor service.

As with my previous hip issue in 2019, which resulted with outstanding results, today’s appointment went really well. All of the office staff, X-Ray technician, Dr. Fischer’s PA, and my time with Dr Fischer was outstanding.

Outstanding sota surgeon
This was my second hip replacement with Dr Fischer. He is only ortho surgeon in pdx using the direct superior method. However, there are a number in the Boston medical community. This is a less invasive procedure, and and extremely thankful i found him to both hip replacements.

Caring, experienced surgeon
I have had two total knee replacements done by Dr. Fischer in the past five years and he did a great job for me. From diagnosis through surgery and aftercare, I felt well taken care of by him and those in his office. I highly recommend him.

Thanks Dr. Fischer!
I needed a second hip replacement, and searched online, as my first surgeon was unsatisfactory. Dr. Fischer and his team was excellent, from the first appointment through post-op. The procedure was explained articulately and patiently. My hip replacement used the latest technology, and was executed flawlessly. My recovery and hip condition has been infinitely better than my first one.

Hip Revision Needed
I recently dislocated my hip for the third time in the last 2 years quite unfortunately and painful, I don’t recommend it! Dr. Fischer and I had talked about if this happened, a second revision surgery would be necessary to stabilize the hip. While that is the last thing I ever wanted, I’m here now. I really appreciate how Dr. Fischer takes the time to answer all my questions and explain how he’d assess the best approach for an optimal outcome for my situation. I’m grateful for him and trust his judgement and expertise.
