    Dr Fisher is an extraordinary physician, with a breadth, scope and depth of medicine, as well as the intellectual curiosity of the finest sleuth.

    in new york, ny |
    Dr. Fisher is one of the best listeners of any medical professional I have ever had to deal with. Being new to New York City and having a few health issues to deal with, he made me feel comfortable from the very beginning spending a significant amount of time just talking to me in his office . He is not only knowledgeable and professional but has the bedside manner you would not expect of being caring, and making one feel comfortable. I recommend him without hesitation.
    in New York, NY |
    It is rare to find a specialist with the expertise, the hands on experience, the compassion of a doctor like Jeffrey Fisher. He engages you in a dialogue and a bedside manner that probes gently to find the source of the pain, pressure, the problem. And, he exudes hope, no matter the medical challenge so that one leaves his office with the courage to live and live well. I trust him, unconditionally because he knows his medicine and hasn't forgotten the little people. And, he still laughs.

    Dr fisher has been my doctor for 30. After going to several doctors. He was the only one who detected my heart condition. I would never change him. Thanks today I'm in very good condition.
    I have been a patient of Dr. Fisher for over 10 years and he always been there for me. He understood not only my medical needs and history but provided me with assistance in other areas of my life. I recently needed his expertise and he immediately provided me with his knowledge and professionalism. I highly recommend him because he is a great cardiologist and family doctor.
    in New York, NY |
    You are not a number. He is very available. He is warm and reassuring. Excellent.
    in Staten Island, NY |
    I have been a patient of Dr. Fisher for 30 yrs. and cannot praise him enough. Thorough, patient (a good listener) he has kept me sans another heart attack for three decades. His knowledge doesn't end with the heart, long before he authored "Heart and Mind" he recognized that connection. Heart trouble often comes with depression and his advice, empathy and expertise pulled me out. Could not reccommend him more as a man and a doctor. Michael McCafffrey.
    in Boynton Beach, FL |
    Dr. Fisher is an excellent doctor. He cares about his patients and will call you to discuss your condition. He will not make you uncomfortable or ask you to go out of your location to take tests or put you through unnecessary tests. I had both my parents and in-laws communicate with DR. Fisher when they had cardiac conditions. I recommend him with full faith.
    in Edison, NJ |
    I was very confident in the way he presented the information to me. My appointment was ontime and I wasn't left in the waiting room for more than ten minutes. He was warm and tried to put me at ease. He didn't mind my questions and answered them in layman terms. I would highly recommend Dr. Jeffrey Fisher.

He never rushes patients.

    Dr. Fisher is simply the best. Knowledgeable and kind, he's also a professor and very good at explaining things. If his patients are in the hospital he visits them every day. I have a friend who is convinced he saved her sister's life by his careful reading of her charts.

    in Short Hills, NJ |
    Excellent doctor, strong level of trust. Determined the medical issue I was dealing very quickly where other doctors and hospitals had sent me home.
    in New York, NY |
    Dr. Fisher is extremely knowledgeable and excellent at explaining the issues with you. He takes his time and I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see him for my appointment. Many other Cardiologists will schedule you for unnecessary tests ,procedures and even surgeries but not Dr. Fisher! I'm being selfish when I say I hope he never retires:)

He leaves no stone unturned when it comes to diagnoses and treatments. He is not only concerned with my heart health but with my overall health and he makes me feel comfortable during my visits and I know that I amc getting the best care possible.
    New York, NY |
    I am grateful that physicians like Dr. Fisher still exist. On a number of occasions he has interupted his regular schedule and made time for me and my immediate needs. It's not always, first come first serve or who he's going to make the most money by seeing, He weighs out each situation, prioritises it and those who need help first actually get it and his expertise is undeniable.
    in New York, NY |
    It’s counterintuitive that so many voice such consistently high praise for Dr. Jeffrey Fisher, but anyone who has been under his care would instantly understand why. He’s the gold standard for patient care. While I, like most patients, lack the medical expertise to truly grade his professional competence, I can speak of my own satisfaction. And he's extraordinarily decent to his patients; he doesn’t skimp on his time with them, and goes out of his way to explain things. Highly recommended.
    in Becchurst, NY |
    I've been a patient of Dr. Fisher's for 20 years. He is always available to help. I value his medical judgement and wisdom.

    Dr Fisher is an amazing physician. His diagnostic skills and medical knowledge are excellent. But above all Dr Fisher is a caring and concerned doctor who listens to his patients and treats the entire person not just the symptoms!
    in New York, NY |
    Dr. Fisher diagnosed my condition the first visit. My blood pressure/heart rate were more than double before I went t o see him. I was misdiagnosed by another Doctor for years. Dr. Fisher sees, understands how depression and anxiety can cause an effect upon your heart/blood pressure, overall health. He is incredibly present and super sharp. Doesn't miss a word I say or an expression on my face. He is passionate about his profession, has quick wit, which makes him more human than other Doctors

I would recommend him highly as he has never wavered in his dedication to his patients and his profession.

    Dr. Fisher is the best doctor I've ever been to. He is smart, intuitive, empathetic, thorough, non-judgemental, and unlike many doctors today, he makes a point of spending as much time as necessary. He guided me through open heart surgery and follow-up like a pro.
