Palo Alto, CA |
I've been given much more thorough exams from Walmart. Was rushed. Was kinda cocky. Looking for new doctor. Front desk not particularly friendly.

Worst doc ever, missed a retina tear and I almost lost my sight

Horrible customer service.

I have been a patient of Dr Fischer for over 20 years. Though I was concerned by his rough personality, his skill and knowledge far outweigh that. I trust my vision, as a diabetic, with him.
