I knew I was in good hands with Dr Fisher. I now consider myself very lucky for not getting an infection from other surgeries I've had in the past performed by other surgeons who don't take infections seriously. Dr Fisher explained how easy it is for infections to develop and the steps he takes to prevent it. I just wish there was a way to have repaired the hernia without any pain or soreness. It's really not bad as long as I don't breathe, talk, or move. Just kidding.

I needed a surgeon to work with the cosmetic surgeon for a mastectomy. I certainly made the right choice! Dr. F's worked me in the same day. He was calm and open to questions. He put me and the my priorities first. He outlined all options and the pros and cons of each. Others at the hospital speak very highly of him as well. Before surgery, he noticed a discrepancy between pathology reports. He took the time to look into it and make sure he had the right answers first. I couldn't be happier.

Caring and thorough doctor. Answers your questions and never rushes. Called me at home to give me results, so I didn't worry, even though I was coming in the next day Great surgeon!

Dr Fischer is a fantastic surgeon and a wonderful, compassionate man. He takes plenty of time, answers all your questions, and is very patient and comforting. He has performed three surgeries for me and I would recommend him to anyone needing surgery, especially for breast cancer. His skill and caring manner helped me get through a really tough time. Dr Fischer is the only surgeon I would ever want for myself and my family.
