very caring explains everything you need to know

all in all the experience was positive.

Good experiences - a very caring & compassionate.

After hearing about all the nightmares the news reports, I was delighted with my experience here.

Dr. Fisher is a real person. He is not arrogant like some doctors become in their practice. He is patient & kind, extremely helpful, and has an "amazing bed-side manner".

Dr Fisher is great. He reviewed my case with me in detail. Listened to me attentively. Addressed any concerns and answered all questions. Performed a thorough exam. Then clearly communicated his recommendations and the reasons for his recommended treatment moving forward.

Dr.Fisher was wonderful! He even found that I had a hernia that no one else had diagnosed while doing his exam. I feel totally comfortable with him and relieved that he is the surgeon who is going to operate on me. [...]

[...] Getting the appointment on an urgent basis was very easy to do. I am very appreciative for them fitting me in both on visit and for surgery.
