Horrible. I do not wish such an experience on ANYONE. It was disastrous.
He is not a caring person. Destroys hope and confidence in people. He can and does destroy relationships between parent and child. Find yourself some other doctor. Someone who cares and understands that the patient is not at fault, and that the patient needs a lot of help ans support in order to recover.
The doctor is an impolite and extremely rude person. He does not care to understand the specific patient. He just screams and treats you like dirt. I would never ever go again. He made everything a lot worse. Do yourself a huge favor and go to a doctor who is sensitive and smart. Don not go to him. You will forever regret it.
He is a horrible dr and made my childs situation worse. Do not go to him. do your research, find a good dr. that will help your child. The nutritionist that worked with him had pink hair, very unprofesssional, and did not guide my daughter at all. It was a waste of time going to the visits.
Do whatever you can NOT TO GO. You will definitely regret it. He causes permanent damage to the patient. He destroys their confidence and self worth. He also has the potential to ruin a parent and child relationship, something vital for the healing process and for life in general... He is a monster of a doctor!
Don't go. He can ruin someone from ever healing. He doesn't understand that people cannot be treated as animals (or worse). Will destroy the patient emotionally, and sometimes even physically forever. Instead of encouragement, he destroys any hope and optimism, which is imperative to the healing process. Stay far away! He does lots of damage .
Has no feelings. Is a 'mr. wise guy' and things he has the entire world figured out... Don't go. He has the potential to destroy someone forever. Ruins relationships, trust, and hope. He is mean and arrogant. STAY AWAY!
He is a mean person. Treats his patients with no dignity what so ever and talks to them like doormats. He caused everlasting destruction. He ruins the patients confidence and self respect. He acts as though the patients are a hopeless case and fails to give any encouraging words. Do not go. You will forever regret it if you do.
Visits were disastrous. Treats parents and patients like saw dust. Got things worse and caused destruction to my relationship with my child. Demolishes any hope to recovery and improvement emotionally and physically. Disgusting experience. If your child is stuck with him, try to GET OUT. He doesn't have a trace of love and lacks sensitivity, something very necessary to cure such diseases. Every visit was a nightmare all over again for both my child and I. Find yourself another doctor. Someone who is more human like.
Dr. Fisher treats his patients like animals. He is someone who destroys the self confidence and self respect of his patients. He has the ability to destroy a relationship between a parent and child. If you have a choice, do NOT GO. Pick someone who understands that the disease is psychological and cannot be fixed overnight by terrorizing the patient.
It has been over 10 years since I was discharged from the hospital and out of Dr. Fisher's care. He saved my life and I am sure that I am just one of many. Most people that write reviews are the ones that are unsatisified- I am certain there are plenty of happy patients that never bothered to review Dr. Fisher. I hope one day I get to thank Dr. Fisher personally!
My son is an anorexia patient and Dr. Fisher was extremely caring and professional. His office is equipped with a social worker and a nutritionist, and best of all, he takes insurance (which was extremely helpful for our family). Dr. Fisher is a patient and understanding physician, and helped us when we needed his support in securing an appropriate educational option for my son. We were referred to Dr. Fisher by another physician, who told us that Dr. Fisher trained her more than 20 years ago on how to provide optimal care for eating disorder patients. Dr. Fisher lived up to all the hype, and I would strongly recommend him to anyone with an eating disorder!
I love Dr. Fisher. He is a great diagnostician, he returns phone calls promptly, he really cares about his patients and follows through if there is a problem. When my son had to see a specialist, his staff was very helpful in finding one who took my insurance and quickly sending the referral. Dr. Fisher called before and after the visit to the specialist to make sure that everything was OK.
From the first minute that I set foot in his office he was obnoxious and extremely unprofessional. Without allowing me to say anything at all he started ranting that I was to blame for my daughter's eating disorder and that I should stay out of her business.Never mind that the etiology of ED's is unknown - Never mind that the Maudsley Method is proven empirically - HE does seem to know EVERYTHING. Impossible to get a word in edgewise. Stay away!
after reading the previous reviews I felt obligated to write a review being a product of this amazing doctor's hard work. Dr Fisher is NOT rude or a "screamer". he's all about tough love and extremely sensible. his predictions are always precise and true- so "playing God" is almost justified!! this doctor is a proffessional genius. very sensitive to family dynamics and knows when to play which attitude. he saved my life!!!
my mom once made me go telling me he was the best of the best. If he is the best then that is frightening. He made me feel embarassed, horrible, and put me down becuase of my eating disorder. He threatened me the first time i went in saying he wanted me in a hospital. He basically made me vegatative and wondered why i gained 13 pounds in one week. News flash going from 100 calories to 3000 is NOT NORMAL. Im still dealing with the issues that he did not help.
He likes to be the boss and Mr. Know-it-all. it makes dealing with a struggling child so much harder to also have to deal with an uncooperative doctor.
Dr. Fisher destroyed my family's relationship after my daughter had visited. I strongly do not recommend
Dr. Fisher is the worst. Selfishly motivated and has no regard for feelings. I pity people who are forced to go to him.
This man is terrible, stuck-up, and has no respect for his patients. He threatens eating-disordered patients and scares them away so much so that you'll literally have to drag them in the next time. He doesn't understand that it's a psychological problem and thinks that by screaming someone that they'll have to gain weight is enough to encourage them to recover. If you love your child, choose someone else.
Beware of this man! He's a "screamer" and he can be extremely rude. He's ruined our family by playing God and hypothesizing about the reasons for our daughter's eating disorder, and he had absolutely no inclination to be bothered by the facts. Actually, he made a point of not wanting to HEAR anything that might spoil his little fantasy.
Dr Fisher called me personally regardingmy son. I was trying to get an appt andhe expressed to me that he did not want me to wait and would see him asap. He had never seen my son before so it was not like we were regular patients. Oncewe saw Dr Fisher he was very patient, kind,professional and knowledgable. I know he was definitely a factor in my son's recovery.
