Patient Comments (6)

Do not waste your time with this doctor. My wife just came home in tears because he was such an arrogant waste of time. He disregarded diagnoses from other doctors that have done thorough exams before he even did any exam of his own. On top of that, his exam was very minimal. He was...more

Absolutely terrible. Dr. Fetzer doesn't know how to communicate or correctly diagnose. He just doesn't "get it". I am now seeing another Dr. who has my pain under control!

This doctor is horrible. He is very rude, has a horrible bedside manner, is in a rush to get you out of there, very conceited. When checking my condition he made the pain worse by trying to hurry and get me out of there. Made comments to my mother that were very rude and upset her.
