Dr. Fisher is possibly best doctor through his care, understanding, explaining and support to his patients. I wish we can see many more like him in this profession through following and emulating his effort and intention.

Dr Fisher was amazing as a surgeon and also during before and after. He took great care to answer my questions and explain everything in detail. He gave me the confidence to proceed with a procedure that presented itself so quickly that i was unprepared to comprehend. A great thanks to Dr Fisher. A wonderful Dr from start to finish.
Dr Fisher is an outstanding physician! He caught my problem right away and arranged treatment very quickly and effectively! I am grateful to have a cardiologist of his outstanding ability.
Appreciate the doctor's sense of humor and willingness and ability to relate to me as an individual. He listened to my concerns about possibility of additional arrhythmias occurring in the future and provided reassurance. When I reported concerns re episodes of rapid heart rate Dr. Fisher stated he did not believe that was related to an arrhythmia but ordered a cardiac monitor for two weeks to get more data and to provide reassurance for me that will allow me to resume my pre-arrhythmia/ablation activities with confidence.
