Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fischer "I am an interventional cardiologist, practicing in the Los Alamitos area for more than 25 years. I believe in preventive care, and spend much of my time with patients, discussing disease processes, and prevention. I perform many cardiovascular procedures, but I am most successful when I have prevented procedures in my patients."

Best doctor I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I respect him so much, when he was putting stints in my heart, he told me if I picked up another cigarette to find another doctor. That was at least 5 years ago, I never smoked again after he said that. He saved my life in more ways than one. I love his honesty and he doesn't sugar coat anything. His nurse, Edith, is wonderful. If you are looking for a great cardiologist this is the Dr. for you. God Bless you two.

Dr. Stuart is a very good professional that addressed my problems immediately and effectively. Proper testing was done and a solution was decided upon with positive results. He was also effective in prescribing lifestyle changes that have begun to insure my problems may never reoccur. As for the office and staff, no complaints. From scheduling to follow though, never a hitch.
