He cares about all his patients needs. He goes above and beyond to fight with insurance companies. He is a Dr that sets and listens to all his patients concerns. He has very good bed side manners

Excellent, very competent and qualified surgeon who takes good care of his patients even if it means irritating the nurses, hospital staff, and/or insurance companies. I would not hesitate for a second to have Dr. Fichter perform my surgery again!
