Patient Comments (3)
in Mount Dora, FL formerly from Newark, DE |
Dr. Fischer was my son's neurologist and my husband's when he was young. He is very much centered around his patient's needs and is gentle in his approach. His bedside manner is outstanding. My son was treated by Dr. Fischer from 18 months to 4 years old when he was cleared and released. He has not had a single seizure episode since the age of 2 and is now 24 years old, I truly believe this is because of the excellent care he received from Dr. Fischer. Thank you.
Dr. Fischer has always given us all the time we need to ask questions and explain things in a way we understand. He really seems to care about his patients. We feel very comfortable with him.
