Always good

Dr. Fischer consistently comes across as caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable. He appears to me to be thorough and meticulous. Most importantly for me, I have great trust and confidence in Dr. Fischer which enables me to speak freely with him about health concerns and to take his advice on various health-related matters without reservation. I find in many areas of life in which I interact with professionals, it has become increasingly necessary to maintain a healthy skepticism about their suggestions. It is refreshing to deal with a professional in inspires a sense of confidence and comfort, as Dr. Fischer does.

Gary Fischer is outstanding in his caring and responsiveness. Aside from visits, we communicate primarily through the UPMC Heatlh Trak. He usually responds the same day.
