Patient Comments (1)
New York, NY |
I do not live near Boston. Dr Fifer and his staff made extraordinary efforts to consult me on my case without requiring me to come to the office. This is an excellent and caring physician who devoted time to learning about and assessing my case despite the fact that I may never be a patient. Due to my situation I encounter lots of doctors and Dr. Fifer has distinguished himself among the best for his candor and obvious commitment to putting the interests of the patient first..
