There is no publicly available rating for this care provider for one or more of the following reasons:
  1. He or she does not see patients in the outpatient clinic setting.
  2. He or she sees patients, but has not yet received the minimum number of Patient Satisfaction Reviews. To be eligible for display, we require a minimum of 40 surveys. This ensures that the rating is accurate and statistically reliable.
  3. He or she is a community provider, not a Geisinger-employed provider. Community providers tend to see patients in their own private outpatient practices, which we do not survey.

Although I had to wait from 9/11/15 the date of my emergency room visit, until 10/9/15, to see *Dr. Fisher, a time frame I consider unreasonable considering the fact I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure, I still see *Dr. Fisher only because a change in Geisinger doctor - will be the same.

I travel 1400 miles rd trip once a year just to be checked out by Dr Fisher. I have so much faith and confidence in him,hes helped keep me alive these past 23 years. I wont let any other doctor change or alter my meds without Dr Fishers ok.

Dr. Fisher is a very good man, he is very stern and abrupt (but) it is only for his concerns about the health of his patients.

The fact that he read the report from a pulmonologist's second opinion concerning my shortness of breath showed how he wanted to understand my condition.

Overall a very good experience with Dr. Fisher. It has been 15 years since I had major heart attack which led to open heart surgery - Dr. Fisher has been keeping eye on {illegible or inappropriate content} heart surgery.
