Dr. Fisher was great! I’ve recommended him to several friends!
The best psychiatrist, I've ever had
Excellent, insightful and truly helps better understand the root causes and solutions to help my work/life/relationship balance issues.
I've had Barry since 2013. Thanks to him I've finally recovered and will not longer be needing therapy very soon. If you want to learn to overcome life's barriers and struggles then Barry is the right person for you. I owe him my life!!
Set this appt up for my son who just moved to D.C. Dr. Fisher was accommodating with scheduling, caring, polite and kind. He called immediately to help figure out a scheduling plan that would fit work schedules best. A very positive and ultimately effective medical experience.
Dr. Fisher truely takes the time to understand his patients and cares about their physical and mental wellbeing. I could not have made a better decision on who to go to to talk about the stressors in my life.
It was a big step for me to make a psychiatric consultation appointment, but I'm so glad it did - and I'm especially glad I came to Dr. Fisher. He was extremely helpful, understanding, kind and informative. I got a lot out of this experience and am grateful for Dr. Fisher's expertise and guidance.
Dr Fisher is excellent, I would highly recommend working with him. He is kind, intelligent, pleasant and patient. I felt comfortable with him in a very short period of time. He also participates with a company that provides psychological genetic testing which gave me incredibly detailed and informative results on my genetic makeup and abnormalities and how they affect my mental health. It also rates possible medications by how effective they are (or are not) with my genetic makeup. It was very cool--I would recommend it to everyone!
I've seen a number of psychiatrists in DC, and Dr. Fisher is easily the best!
