Dr. Fisher is like many of my doctors in the NorthShore University HealthSystem both professional and easy to approach with questions and concerns. He gave an extremely thorough explanation of my pacemaker functioning at this time and also answered several questions I had. I not only never felt rushed, I felt as though he considered having my questions answered as important as the current status of my pacemaker functioning. Not only does he have my vote of confidence as a surgeon, but also as everything that embodies a good physician.
At end of visit Dr. Fischer told me to stay away! This was great news as the proactive efforts by him, his assistants and his staff led to a full recovery! Cheers & Congrats!!!
Why do you only send a survey when you can expect positive comments. I wish I had a survey on some other not so good health care providers at Northshore
dr fisher spends as much time as needed at my visits. i never feel rushed. always able to takk about anything that has changed
I had time to throughly discuss my concerns and listen to my options.
I would like to receive a more inclusive after visit summary that includes issues discussed, explanations, and plan of action. I realize that might require a little more time, but he/she is already entering it into the patient's record - ie I prefer visual to auditory.
Dr. Fisher was very thorough, friendly and concerned. I like them all a lot
DR. Fisher has my complete confidence ans is an excellent doctor.
Iam in good hands!
Dr. Fisher is a wonderful doctor. I have gone through a process since approx February and Dr. Fisher and my family have been my support every step of the way. He has been my doctor, of course, very good explainer in chief and offered humor when I needed it. We, with him, made it through. And I credit him and his staff with providing everything I needed when needed it. Thank you to all.
