It would be great to have an EFT so your bill will be auto deducted from my bank account. It's not a big deal but it would be nice.

Dr. Fisher is a down-to-earth, compassionate provider. He knows his patients well and provides individualized care. He is easy to reach to ask for prescription refills, new appointments or questions. I could not have found a better psychiatrist. I highly recommend him.

This is the first psychiatrist I have stayed over 3 months. I have been getting him now for three years. I have some difficult problems that he has steered me through. I am very thankful that he was recommended to me.

Dr. Fisher's a very cool dude and I've been seeing him for 7 years give or take. However: 1) I don't believe he knows enough about P.T.S.D. (yet outsources)2) can yet diag. all related dx.

I've seen Dr. Fisher for over 8+ years. He's always gone above and beyond to help me through any crisis anytime. I spent years misdiagnosed by many different doctors. Dr. Fisher gave me the correct diagnosis and has been here for me ever since. He's changed my life!

Patient Charles

Wait time = Always on time (I get there about 10 minutes only)
Dr. Fisher is compassionate and easy to talk with. He is an excellent diagnostician and source of referrals. He helped me through therapy and continuing support to recover from clergy abuse I suffered as a child.

Dr. Fisher is a critical part of my growth, development and self understanding. Unlike any other doctor or therapist I have seen, Dr. Fisher recognizes that improving mental health is less about overlaying a diagnosis of theory on the patient and more about providing a comforting environment where probing questions force you to better understand the road to better mental health.

Patient John

Wait time: 5 minutes
Therapy with Dr. Fisher has been transformative for me. I entered therapy very depressed, angry and caught in destructive cycles in my life. He has been a wise and patient therapist, who has helped me identify and articulate the unconscious destructive forces which were causing me so much emotional pain. He is also very knowledgeable in addiction treatment.
