Dr. [...] referred me to Dr. Fisher. I am glad she did. She listened to me and dug for information. Many doctors do not believe in Tarlov Cysts. She did, and she found me a surgeon so I did not get worse. I LOVE HER!

I really like Dr Fischer and think she is very knowledgeable. i think the only reason I did not get my concern addressed was due to us both getting side-tracked with other things and neither of us remembered to re-visit my concern.

I have the utmost praise and respect for Dr. Fisher. She has done more in my short time under her care than any other doctor over a 10+ year time frame. The ONLY concern I have is it is SO hard to get in to see her. I luckily have been able to get in to see her and keep all of my appointments but as for others....I don't know. I did recommend Dr. Fisher to a friend and it took two months for her to get in for her first appointment...same as it took me the first time. If you could just clone Dr. Fisher, it would be the most perfect scenario possible...just a little humor. As of my last appointment [...]...because of a new medication she has prescribed for me, it's the first time in over ten years that I have been virtually pain free...something I didn't thing would ever be possible. Dr. Fisher walks on water as far as I'm concerned!!!!

[...] the care I receive from Dr. Fisher is the best I have ever received. [...] I think it's a tragedy that a patient has to wait 3-4 months for an appointment.
