Dr. Fishell came highly recommended by the neurosurgeon I had seen for my pain-causing problem. It was easy to see why, as he was professional, polite, and remarkably efficient. He took the time to explain everything that was going to be done, and everything happened exactly as he said it would. His staff is competent and accommodating. After two procedures, my problem was largely solved. Thank you, Dr. Fishell.
