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.
