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 habits and 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 holistic well-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.
