Specialties

Dr. David J Fischer has the following 4 specialties

  • Pediatric Anesthesiology
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

10+ Years of Excellent Care

Dr Fischer has provided excellent care for over 10 years as my disease progressed and changed. He spends the time needed to hear about my current symptoms and gets me appointments with other specialists or tests the same day when I had serious problems. He orders tests necessary to diagnose or rule out problems and sends does not hesitate to send me to specialists as needed. He encourages me to contact him if anything seems out of whack so we can try to catch it and he'll squeeze me in if he thinks he should see me. I appreciate his experience as my disease presents itself in so many ways.
