Dr. Fischer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fischer "I was born and raised in Florida, and after moving around the United States to receive my education, chose to return to Florida to be close to my family, my roots, and to give back to the citizens of the state of Florida (including Florida natives and those who have moved to our beautiful state.)"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fischer "As a primary care physician trained in both Pediatrics and Internal Medicine, I manage health care problems and promote wellness in patients of all ages. Most medical problems should initially by brought to the attention of a primary care physician, since he /she can manage most of them, and knows when a referral to a specialist is needed. I serve as a confidant and advocate for my patients, and feel a large part of my role is to demystify medicine for my patients."

I met with Dr. Fischer, who was subbing for my endocrinologist. I saw none of the negative traits mentioned in the first 3 reviews. He spent considerable time taking my medical history and listening to my complaints. His assessment of my health problems was enlightening and he suggested and...more

I'm glad to hear that a patient had a good experience at our office. First impressions/first visits are important, but I most enjoy getting to know people over time and becoming very personally involved in their health.

Welcome to St. Martin de Porres, my new friend!
