Wow, bad awful experience. Has an air of superiority about him that is almost godlike. Doesn't listen, interrupts, gets bored when someone else is speaking and has an eye on the young ladies on the staff. I'd had 2 separate injections for back problems from a different practice that worked great. Each lasted a couple of years. His solution? PT, and ineffective pain pills witch are worthless. But he knows better than the patient knows themselves. Mind u my daughter brought me in a wheelchair.

Condescending, not thourogh, doesn't listen terrible bedside manner. Seems like he's just puttin in the hours with no interest in the people who pay him... US!

Came to get urgent help with a painful pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Fisch diagnosed the problem accurately after through exam & x-ray . He spent a long time with me..asking a series of questions about my concerns. I left his exam knowing that I was in excellent care. I highly recommend his practice.

After a fall a year ago, I had an agonizing crushed disc and my spine was destabilised, I needed to find a surgeon quickly to do a fusion. Luckily, I found Dr Fisch, as we know spinal surgery is not something to be taken lightly and I was concerned about getting someone competent and well versed in spinal surgery. Dr Fisch undertook the fusion surgery perfectly, in a completely professional manner. One year on I am free from spinal issues, I can even go running again.

The proverbial 15 min per visit doctor. Casual and light on the diagnostics. After keeping me waiting for a full hour, told me what I already knew about my stenosis but did not take the time to probe deeper to help me deal with the vert painful new symptoms beyond writing a PT script. When asked if he had any specific instructions for the PT folks, the answer was "they know what to do."

BY ALL MEANS Do NOT use Dr Fisch for surgery on your spine. He is not able to hang a painting or change a tire. First of all , Dr's dont want you to know this , that these injuries will heal in time. Dr Fisch is a no talent hack who operated then left me disabled while he went on a vacation. He is known as having a serious lack of bed side manner but worse, he is unable to communicate at all. He would much rather flirt with the young girls he hires to run his office. Go To Dr Goldsmith instead
