Dr. Fischer listens and understands my medical condition. He follows up on my condition in order to determine the effects of treatment and if any adjustments are necessary. He suggests preventive test and immunizations to help prevent disease. He cares about me and my health. He has a high degree of empathy. I am lucky to have him as a top physician!
