Dr. Michael A Fisher has the following 2 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Dr. Fisher is by far the best shrink I have ever been to. He is kind, cheerful, sympathetic and you never wait for your appointment longer than 5 minutes or so. He is knowledgeable about medications and makes thoughtful selections for whatever your problem might be. He is SUPER and that is an understatement!
It's true Dr. Fisher is superb!We have a long history together(one of the reasons he doesn't take new patients is I and most everyone I know has a 20 plus years relationship with him. He is kind, take at least 25 min. if not longer,with each person. He may not always be correct in the beginning but will get it put together as he gets to know you. Though sometimes his calls may be after hours, he does call himself. He sends out appt. reminders and doesn't care if you drop a line in an e-mail as to how things are going. He generally cares for people and how they feel. Very knowledgeable, keeps up to date with new meds and other treatments as well as lives in the area so he knows what is happening around that may influence feelings. Tends to have an innate sense about him in order to connect with his patiants recalls events pretty well and takes good notes if any other quesions were to arise. Kudos Dr. F!
Doctor Fisher is so great! I've been seeing him for a total of about 6 months. He's understanding and trustworthy! Unlike most doctors you see that never believe you, he listens and takes your opinion into account before his diagnoses. He's smart and knows what he's doing. If your looking for a great doctor stop waisting your time and call him!
