Very caring Dr. Spends a lot of time with you and really tries to help you. Very understanding and considerate. Today was my 1st spot. Came in for a check up and this is the best dr I have ever been too.

I am a 51 year old who has a decent grip on the realities of my body. Dr Ficho speaks to me as an adviser in blunt clear terms. This is what i am looking for. Also he does not appear to be a pawn of the Pharmaceutical complex which is important to me.
