Amazing Doctor he's very sincere understands your level of back pain. Don't judge you or treat you as if your making the pain up or try to downgrade the pain you feel. I DEFINATELY trust him. Now his office worker Pat in scheduling for surgery is extremely rude like you've interrupted her day by asking a question. If you need help ask for Dana or someone else cause you'll hang up feeling like you were wasting Pat's time.

in Nolensville TN |
Dr. Fish performed a disk replacement on my C6-c7 disk. He did a great job with the surgery and I had a very easy recovery. He was very easy to talk to and took the time to explain the process to me in detail. I felt very comfortable using him.

in Murfreesboro, TN |
He is excellent surgeon and my back is wonderful compared to where it was. This is my seventh spine surgery. I wish I had found Dr. Fish long ago and I would not have had this surgery or many of the others.
