Dr. Fisler was and is the best dermatologist I've ever had the pleasure to be a patient of. Many of my coworkers in the Kansas/Missouri area miss her terribly.

Terrible doctor. We agreed to a simple procedure during the consult, then she performs a more expensive procedure that wasn't covered by my insurance. Worst yet she left a large scar. Apparently a Harvard degree does not mean competence.

I am so sorry that you feel you were not given good service. This seems to be the same review that has been left several times from KS, and as every point is marked with the lowest review including office cleanliness, I was wondering if you wouldn't like to discuss this in person. All procedures that I perform are discussed by myself and my staff, and a consent form is signed beforehand. I strive to be of service and make all of my patients happy, so contact me and let's see if we can help!
