in Mobile, AL |
Dr. Fisher saved my quality of life. I had three surgeries in Mobile where a doctor pretty much took a whole year of my life, and almost more. Dr. Fisher completely fixed me, and my life is back to normal. I feel for the most part great, and do things I was not able to do two years ago.

Wonderful surgeon. Very caring and compassionate.
in Troy, Alabama |
He gave me my life back. I am so blessed. He listened to me, not my tests. I suffered for so long. I'm now able to work and am a completely new person. He listened when all others dismissed me. I am grateful beyond words.
