Most satisfying primary care/annual physical visit I've experienced. Dr. Fischer was both thoroughly systematic and refreshingly personable. He ran through a comprehensive set of questions that helped me reflect on my health and habitsand shared his wisdom and expertise freely. I considered my visit as much of a compassioned coaching session as it was an evaluation. I strongly recommend Dr. Fischer as a primary care physician for individuals in the northern Chicago suburbs.

Very thorough and knowledgeable and courteous and kind! Highly recommend! He suggested many preventative strategies and even gave me printouts for how I can help myself in various aspects of life. I could tell that he truly cares about holisticwell-being, mind, body and soul of his patients (unlike other horrible business jerk docs). You will not regret seeing him and will be thankful that you did!

It was great, except for the fact that the office calls me everytime I schedule an appointment telling me to reschedule because they don't have the slot open. It's infuriating.

This is the second time I have seen Dr. Fischer when my regular doctor was not in, although the last time was over three years ago. Dr. Fischer takes time to ask questions and discuss the answers. Few doctors seem todo that, especially when you are not theirs. His diagnosis was correct and following his suggestions, I am back to full health.

This doctor asked me to submit to a blood test, which their front desk said is covered by my insurance. Even if it was supposed to be billed to my insurance, they billed me for it anyway. You don't ever wantto receive a bill from them because, if there are billing errors, the only way to address those errors is to call a customer service number which NOBODY ANSWERS.
