  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I agree with the other reviewer completely. I feel that i am in such good hands with Dr. Fischer. He is obviously highly intelligent but is very caring and committed to providing quality care. He really takes the time to listen and encourages you in a non-threatening way to take action to improve your health. He is very thorough. I highly recommend him.

My doctor for 15 years

Excellent, excellent, excellent! Caring, smart, Harvard Med School grad. He keeps my hypertension under control, and monitors my diabetes, as well as several other chronic problems. I recommend him highly (if you can get an appointment -- he is often booked up.)
