F for bedside manner

I had to call after hours wother a post surgery concern. Dr. Fisher was the on call doctor. He was rude and condescending and hung up on me before even inquiring about my condition. His behavior changes my overall opion of Orthopedic Specialists. I'm not sure I'll go back there even for my post-op visit.

Good Man

I love Dr. Fisher! He was willing to see me and fix hardware that another surgeon botched, when most surgeons in the area wouldn't even consider it. The incision was WORLDS better than the one from my first surgery. He apparently has a reputation for not being so warm and fuzzy, but I thought he was great. I don't need warm and fuzzy anyway; I need excellence and that's what I had with Dr. Fisher.

Dr. Robert Fisher was very professional. My husband had both knees replaced and I had a torn rotator cuff. He performed surgeries for both of us and we were VERY please with our care and follow-up treatments. I don't need a doctor with a great personality. I want one who knows what he is doing.

Very sorry my mother used him

Took twice the normal time of hip replacement, in the process he cracked the pelvice and within a week her pelvic was crushed. Had to send her to another hospital to have the pelvic rebuilt and a new hip replacement, the hip he put in was tooooooo small for her so aparently he doesn't know how to size up the right size hip replacement.
