Patient Comments (1)
in Victorville, CA |
Dr. Fischl had a terrible bedside manner, was very abrupt and didn't take time to answer questions about an impending surgery. Eventually he refused to do a much needed surgery and never even discussed the reasons for his final decision with us. He left notes in a computer and left the job to someone else to tell us. I would never recomment Dr. Fischl to any patient based on his lack of communication and lack of empathy.
