18/07/14 5 4 5 5 I happened upon Dr Fisher in my search for prenatal accupuncture treatment. I called the clinic Yinstill and he was my first contact. He listened to my concerns and followed up immediately with emails. I was impressed with his followup after all appointments and access by email. Most helpful and timely. He answered all my questions and whete he could not, made sure to refer. I felt his care was very personalized. He is very responsive and a great listener, excellent caregiver.

04/03/14 5 5 5 5 I decided to try acupuncture while I was pregnant because my midwife suggested it. I live near Yinstill and decided to give them a call. Right from the beginning (I was 36 weeks pregnant when I contacted them)the staff at Yinstill were exceptionally friendly, informative, and helpful. Dr. Fisher was the one I booked my appointment with, and I cannot speak highly enough of him! He was VERY patient, knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Each appointment was very thorough and professional. I have a slight anxiety around needles, and I did not feel the insertion of the needles at all! He took the initiative to send me some pressure points to focus on that would help leading up to the due date. I ended up delivering 8 days early, and my midwife commented that my cervix was exceptionally stretchy and helped me during my labour for sure. I like to think that this was because of the acupuncture =)  Respond

18/12/13 5 5 5 5 I was almost 40 weeks pregnant and I was starting to get anxious to meet my new baby. My midwife recommended trying acupuncture to 'get things going'. I had seen Dr Fisher before for other reasons and I felt comfortable seeing him, because he was very professional and knowledgable so I decided to go see him. I told Dr Fisher I had anxiety about the pain of labour and asked if he could treat that too. I went for two treatments 5 days apart. And my baby girl Sophia was born two days after my second time. I was surprisingly calm during my labour and was able to give birth completely natural with no interventions and no complications. I'm positive the acupuncture played a role in this. Thank you Dr Fisher and Yinstill Wellness Center.

31/10/13 5 5 5 5 I first saw Harris before our IVF embryo transfer in August of 2012. I am certain that his acupuncture treatments helped me become and stay pregnant. His gentle, caring nature and vast knowledge put me at ease right away. I appreciate his thoughtfulness during every session and always leave feeling rejuvenated and educated. He never rushes me and takes ample time to answer all my questions and concerns. I cannot recommend him highly enought.  Respond

25/10/13 5 5 5 5 I have seen Dr. Fisher for a number of issues and have always been very impressed with the results, as well as the process. Dr. Fisher is very genuine and attentive during the intake process and always makes me feel very comfortable and relaxed. He always very thorough and takes that little bit of extra time gathering information to get to the root of the issue. I am very familiar with different types of alternative health care and Dr. Fisher is one of the most knowledgeable practitioners I have come across! I do not hesitate giving his contact information to friends and family whom I think would benefit from his care.  Respond

24/10/13 5 5 5 5 I attended acupuncture with Dr. Fisher at the end of my pregnancy term to help with positioning of my baby for delivery. I would like to think that the treatments were part of the success in the quick delivery that I had but Dr. Fisher went beyond in introducing pressure points that I could work on at home as well as during contractions. Yinstill is a peaceful place and the treatments were very relaxing for the final week of my pregnancy.  Respond

24/10/13 5 5 5 5 I went and saw Dr. Fisher for acupuncture during our third and what would be our final IVF cycle. He was caring, calm and gentle. I always felt relaxed and rejuvenated after every session. With Dr. Fisher's help, my husband and I now have a healthy baby. I would recommend anyone going through fertility struggles to see Dr. Fisher at Yinstill, it was definitely money well spent.  Respond

29/09/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Fisher is a top-notch health professional who is highly skilled, and has a great personality. He is punctual, courteous, gentle, he listens, and genuinely cares about his patients' wellbeing. The clinic where he works is exceptionally clean and tranquil with peaceful music playing and the soothing scent of lavender to put you at ease. The staff at Yinstill are always friendly and welcoming. Harris has cured me of PCOS and gastroparesis (which, I was told by other doctors was incurable) through a combination of acupuncture and herbs. I am extremely satisfied and would recommend Harris to anyone struggling with any sort of imbalance or lack of harmony within the body.  Respond

21/09/13 5 5 5 5 I originally came to see Dr.Harris seeking emotional support. I had recently lost my mother and found myself alone in a big city and terrified. I was grieving heavily and my thinking was fogged up. There was a lot of anger and sadness. I also had physically issues such heavy cramping during my periods to constant blooded stomach. I felt the effect right after the first treatment. There was a sense of calmness and peacefulness that I had not felt in a while. Mostly the cramping went away and my thoughts were clearer. I really felt like it helped me move through the pain in a smoother way. His professionalism is outstanding and his willingness to help so very kind. Most importantly I feel the support coming from him and I don’t feel so alone anymore knowing that this is really helping me move forward. I would most definitely highly recommend Dr Harris  Respond

17/09/13 5 5 5 5 I started working with Dr Fisher in November 2012 in order to treat underlying causes that were causing my Graves disease (auto-immune condition that attacks the thyroid and causes it to become hyperactive). Both my family doctor and endocrinologist had told me that I would have to take the thyroid medication for up to two years and that eventually I would need to destroy the thyroid gland, but I felt I needed to try alternative treatments before facing such a radical solution. With regular acupuncture treatments, Chinese herbs, and modifications to my diet suggested by Dr Fisher, I was able to stop the medication and my thyroid levels were - and still are - normal and stable after eight months. I am still working with Dr Fisher on a regular basis to keep everything in check, and am very grateful for his warm presence, sense of humor, detailed explanations, and overall advice.  Respond

27/04/13 5 5 5 5 I went to see Harris for stress pain in my neck and shoulder. After treatment, herbal medicine, and other lifestyle recommendations, I saw a significant reduction of pain the first week. By continuing his recommendations, at the end of the second week, I had virtually no pain. Therefore, I found him extremely knowledgeable and attentive. I have also been grateful for his holistic approach as I also have seen an overall improvement in my health. I would recommend him to anyone, especially those who are looking for an alternative to Western medication.  Respond

21/03/13 5 5 5 5 I've seen Harris Fisher on a regular basis for the last 3 years for Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Since I was a child I've been treated by many TCM docs and I can say that Harris is the most knowledgeable practitioner that I've met. He really takes the time to get a holistic understanding of what's going on with your case and his treatments are always right on the mark. I've been for regular "tune ups" and for more serious conditions and Harris has helped me through all of them. I'm a competitive athlete and coach and regularly recommend Harris to the sporting community, a group who takes their paramedical advice very seriously!  Respond

07/03/13 5 5 5 5 Harris is an excellent health care professional. He is extremely knowledgable, intuitive and kind. He seems fully present during my sessions with him and he often stays in the room for most of the treatment. He uses a number of different modalites that are effective. I have been seeing him for hormonal balance and stress reduction and have been very happy with the results.  Respond

27/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Fisher is absolutely amazing and knows what he's doing in his treatment plan. I start seeing him after a MVA and was suffering from severe headaches, low energy level, back and neck injury. The combination of his skills and the herbs that he uses helped me to feel so much better and boost my health. One of my friends introduced Dr. Fischer to me and I would absolutely do the same thing to everyone who asks for an acupuncturist.  Respond

26/02/13 5 5 5 5 I started seeing Harris because of a back injury I had from a car accident years ago. It began to flair up so I started seeing him for acupuncture. I was in so much pain when I went to see him I could hardly walk. Right away he helped me feel comfortable even though I really nervous since I never had acupuncture before. He helped me so much. I noticed the difference that night. I would highly recommend him to anyone.  Respond
