My experiences with Dr. Fischer and his staff members are always excellent. I rarely have to wait. The nurses are cheerful and efficient. Dr. Fischer will answer any and all questions and give one as much time as needed. He is kind and extremely knowlegeable; he makes me feels secure in his judgments. I have bad veins and require phlebotomies. His staff is fabulous with me. I am never nervous.

Dr. Fischer is one of the best doctors I have had over the years. I only wish he specialized in a number of other areas as well as hematology/oncology so I could work with him to address some of my other medical issues outside his field. He actually has provided material help where others have failed or simply lacked the interest to follow up and provide care leading to a positive outcome.
