Dr. Fissha was on call at my last visit at the hospital. He was excellent he took time listening to my issues asked me lots of questions and answered my questions. Did not rush out of my room like most Dr’s do at the hospital. I highly recommend Dr. Fissha.

Dr. Fissha is an extremely knowledgeable cardiologist. He takes the time to explain everything to you, and always has a plan-B. I eventually had a Heart Transplant. Thank God for his mercy, grace and connecting me to Dr. Fissha at Oviedo Hospital.

Make an appointment, show up on time and wait an hour after your appointed time. Pushes pills. Didn't help. Solution? Increase the dosage and try an additional pill. Every visit results in an additional pill/pills to take. Other doctors advised me to find another cardiologist. Orders tests but no one follows up on results. Sets appointments by sending a postcard "advising" you when your next appointment is (50 miles from home and not at the office you've gone to for a year.

Dr. Fissha saw me January 3rd and implanted a pacemaker January 5th. He thoroughly explained the need for the placement. His demeanor instilled confidence in me. The follow-up appointment went very well and we are very pleased to recommend him and his practice to anyone needing a cardiologist!!

My husband had a heart attack a month ago. We did not have a cardiologist and the hospital assigned the on call physician. We feel like we lucked out big time with Dr. Fissha. He was able to do the heart cath via the wrist. He ended up placing a stent and my husband is good as new. Thank you Dr. Fissha for your professionalism, your ability and your fantastic bedside manner! We’ll be seeing you in 6 months! David and Becky Smith
