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.
New York, NY |
This Dr. is unethical and negligent. He fires patients based solely on the word of his PA Kristen Lamb. He and his staff are rude, hateful, and have no compassion. I have 2 medical devices now thanks to his unethical practices. He has a God complex and runs UAB neurosurgery with his flunkies. He teaches residents to be cold to their patients as well. I was told not to call his office unless i was dying. He is not God and only God has the last say vengeance is his. Heartless Dr & staff!!!!!!

Wonderful surgeon. Very caring and compassionate.
in Birmingham, Al |
Dr.Fisher is good at what he does but he has HORRIBLE bedside manners, lacks compassion for his patients, is arrogant and runs his office like a CULT! Had I ever known he doesn't care about his patients unless he gets praise & glory for performing surgery on patients with TBI, or strokes then you are last on his priority list and he treats you like you don't even matter! 4 brain surgeries so far and zero improvement. As long as he is called the neuro GOD he will continue to think he is GOD!
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.
in Montgomery, AL |
This doctor is amazing...he saved my life. His staff has also been very supportive and kind. I stay in the general area to be near UAB and Dr. Fisher's expert care.
