Verified Patient Reviews
I showed up late, because I was an idiot. He balanced time, efficiency and helping me with my problem. Was very empathetic, educational and reassuring.
This was by far the most efficient and professional doctors appointment I’ve ever had!
Best primary care physician ever. Been a patient for ca. 6-7 years or more. Convenient in-office lab and radiology. Even though I am not a resident of Illinois, I come here for specifically for my annual check-up with Dr. Fischer.
Incredible doctor who truly cares. Extremely knowledgeable and caring. Very engaging and thorough. Would highly recommend
Dr. Fischer was very helpful at listening to my concerns and addressed a plan right away. I like his personality and how easy he is to communicate with. He put me at ease right away and I'm looking forward to my husband meeting him and I know he'll be just as thrilled as I am to have him be our primary dr. I appreciate you Dr. Fischer!
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!

Great experience as usual! Robert
Very happy. Dr. Fischer is very through. He also keeps track my other doctors.
This is only my second visit and Im pleased how fast, and efficient the appointment turned out. Having your physician on the same page as the patient's concerns, makes decision-making and planning a breeze.
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.
He was thorough with medical history taking, which is a good foundation. This is my initial visit, and I'd have more feedbacks on the next appointments.
Dr. Fischer was very thorough and the staff was organized to help me get in and out in a timely fashion. He is very personable and easy going, so you feel very comfortable with him which is really important to me.

Dr. was great! Hoping to make this a permanent arrangement.
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 to do that, especially when you are not theirs. His diagnosis was correct and following his suggestions, I am back to full health.
Always professional and flexible when needed. Thanks.
Dr. Fischer is great! He is so nice, knowledgable, and very personable. I'm really happy with my choice in making him my PCP
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 want to 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.
Dr. Fischer was very thorough and extremely personable. I usually bring a newspaper to a doctor visit for all the waiting I usually end up doing, but here I never had a chance to read it!
Very thorough, worth my time. Excellent doctor I will be going back!
Very thorough and extremely professional.
I have been seeing Dr. Fisher for the past ten years; he is an excellent physician. Smart, thorough and very good at identifying health issues and keeping me healthy. I highly recommend him.
I thought that he was very thorough. He took his time with me. I did not get the feeling of being rushed. He answered all the questions I had. He gave me referrals to other doctors that could give me help with other problems. There was no wait time. Highly recommended.
Very friendly and caring. Very thorough.
This was the most complete and conscientious physical I have ever had. Dr. Fischer made me feel as if I were the only patient scheduled that day. This is a quality that is sadly rare among doctors these days.
It was very helpful.
I am 100% pleased with Dr Fischer!
Very professional and easy to talk to. Extremely thorough and you can tell he listens, cares, and knows his stuff inside and out. Highly recommended.
Dr. Fischer is very straight forward. He tells you what he knows and more importantly what he doesn't know. He is easy to talk to and really wants to help his patients.
Dr. Fischer was one of the best physicians I have ever experienced. He was professional, quick, witty, and comprehensive. I went in with sinusitis and was weary as I haven't been to a Doctor in quite some time (I am typically healthy). He didn't force antibiotics on me--he simply left the option open and I appreciate that tremendously. I will be using him as my primary care physician from now on.
i think its a place for senior citzens
My experience with Dr. Fisher was great!This was my first visit and definitely i will go again!
Dr. Fischer was extremely nice and attentive. I was seen right on time and even though I was only there for a general consult, Dr. Fischer really took the time to talk to me and get a thorough medical history. I also found it very convenient that I could get all my lab work done right in the office.
