Out of a Lifetime of Physicians, Dr. Fisher is clearly head and shoulders above the rest. This is NOT A PRACTICE WITH 22 Doctors where you ask to the MD and see a NP; where my previous Doctor made a diagnosis and wrote a prescription and said good luck / goodbye all in 5 minutes. Dr. Fisher takes the time to get it right. Office staff is very accommodating as it pertains to scheduling appointments.
The wait times never seem out of the ordinary, this is not fast food drive thru.
Super knowledgeable about health and medicine, current as well as what's on the Horizon. A realist and (Thank God) antagonist of the Insurance companies. Great sense of Humor. I will continue to see Dr. Fisher as long as I am breathing or as long as he practices .. whichever ends first.
Dr. Fisher is the BEST Doctor anyone will find in this country. He cares more about his patients than any other doctor, He does not look at you as a paycheck. Him and his staff are extremely sympathetic and compassionate. I can't believe that from one bad experience anyone could make a judgement on him and his practice. He looks out more for his patients than they probably look after themselves. I live across the country now and I can only dream of finding another Doctor nearly as good as him. I thank you Dr. Fisher for everything you have done for me.
I'm a real patient of his not someone just covering up some negative feedback, My name is Justin Toye and I wish Dr. Fisher was where I am now.
never on time – this doctor is never on time. no matter what time you make an appt for. I have waited over 2 hours for an appt. his speciality work with aids patients does call for more time for care but no one should have to wait so long. He needs to schedule more time with each patient so others don't have to wait. I suggest he should hire capable front end help and also another physician. Best bet is too go in as the first patient and hope he shows up on time. Having to just come in for refills is a pain as he won't just refill a prescription without another visit and waiting for just a refill is annoying.
Positive note: right across from Costco and Walmart, can shop once you are done.
Front Office Management Lacking – I really couldn't recommend this doctor's office because of my experience with the doctor's front office management. One example - they confirmed my appointment on my voicemail the afternoon before my appointment date but when I showed up on time the next morning, they said I did not have an appointment and that I would have to reschedule. This inefficiency was only one of a few problems I encountered with the staff in just a short time period. I decided to go elsewhere.
Caring, Knowledgeable, – A bit behind but any good Dr. these days can get that way. He has taken the time to discuss options and therapy with me that other Doctors would simply have blown off due to time constraints. He takes the time to pay attentntion to your needs when he does see you, and if that means your wait might take a little longer so be it! And when you're sick he schedueles to come in ASAP
Great doctor, poor management – Dr. Fisher is a knowledgeable clinician, whose only problem is the inability to keep on schedule. It is not unusual for a 10 minute, presceheduled appointment to take 90 minutes or more, due to him running late. He seems to thrive on it, but it is very annoying to his patients. His office staff is generally good, but lack follow-through in some respects, and can be frustrating to deal with.
