Sometimes the wait may be long but I never mind because I know that Dr Fisher will spend as much time with the patient that it takes for them to understand and have all their questions answered. I know that he will do that for me as well, so I don’t mind waiting.

Dr. Fisher is an excellent surgeon and a compassionate physician. I've trusted him for the past 8-9 years and each of the procedures he's helped me get thru. He listens to patients and has a terrific manner or way of helping you get thru and understand what is needed for various procedures. He's methodical and works to rule out other possible pain generators. I greatly appreciate everything Dr. Fisher has done.

08/12 Dr. Fisher put a Prodisc C in my neck. 09/12 he put another disc in my neck. 09/15 the pain was so bad I sought treatment elsewhere, the vertebrae between the two Prodiscs was crushed and part of the artificial disc was laying on my spinal cord. A very serious injury that needed immediate attention which could have caused me to be paralyzed from the shoulders down. Two major surgeries in one week and one year late I'm still suffering the effects.
