I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Fischer. He was extremely thorough and caring throughout my entire knee replacement surgery. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for orthopedic work. Thank you, Dr. Fischer for my new knee!

Dr. Fischer was my second opinion doctor. I knew without a doubt, on my first visit with him, that he was the Doctor for me! He took the time to both show me the images of my injury, showed me a video on repairing the injury, and explaining in detail what to expect, including the pain and sleepless nights! He was right on point! I am 5 months in, and no longer in pain! a little discomfort every now and then. I have my strength back, minimal scars and each day gets better! Dr. Fischer, "Thank you" for your patience, guidance and awesome "Skills and Professionalism" You exemplify what all caring Doctors should be! Also, you are a sharp dresser and always smell so good! Thank you!

For ten years I suffered every time I decided to go running or work out due to a condition I had on my left foot. I looked for help and advise from several specialists. Last year a foot doctor told me I needed surgery. He provided me with 3 different options. I was not sure at all, so I waited for a year. This last May I finally made the decision to proceed, but before doing it I wanted to hear Dr. Fischer's opinion. I am so glad about choosing him to be the one doing the surgery. He explained my medical condition, showed me what needed to be done and with so much confidence said to me, don't worry everything is going to be great. He is an amazing doctor. The surgery was a complete success. After three weeks of my ankle arthroscopy I am walking, once again, but without the horrible pain I had for years. Dr. Stuart J Fischer is passionate not only for his profession but also for the patients. His staff is super friendly and getting appointments is really easy. Two thumbs up!

Dr. Stuart Fischer, MD Examined my knee throughly and explained that I had lost all the cartilage in my knee. In preparation for the surgery Dr. Fischer provided me with details of what to expect and showed me what the surgery would be like in order to decide if this was an option for me. Dr. Fischer is very professional and dedicated doctor. He has done an excellent job on my knee. Even though this was a major surgery it has not felt like it. The cut he made on my knee is very small compared to other doctors I have seen so my recuperation has been great. I never expected to feel so good, so quickly. The best thing about doctor Fischer is that he has the experience, and passion for what he does. He prepares all his patients by explaining before and after the surgery.

Dr. Stanley Fischer did a great job in repairing my right arm injury that I sustained from a fall. He was able to expertly repair both my bicep and subscapularis tendons, along with a rotator cuff tear. I am so very close to a 100% recovery in less than six months! Wonderful surgeon and an exceptional staff as well! My utmost thanks and gratitude Dr. Fischer. You are the best!

I just had total knee replacement surgery with Dr. Stuart Fischer. I was very satisfied. I was out of the hospital same day and driving in 2 weeks. I am a little bow legged and he even straightened out my leg! Dr. Fischer has a lot of experience and he takes great pride in his work. He was great about informing me of the whole procedure and he also has a wonderful office staff where you won't wait all day for your appointment.
