I am absolutely digused at the this Dr Fisher absolutely ZERO bedside manner was so rude to my daughter who is going thro a sad time in her life she needed medical attention and was talked to so terrible she was in tears no ok at all I will be going to the medical board as she was the worst I will even go as far as verbally abusive and degrating I feel sick and very discouraged at our medical system please do not see this Dr. If I could rate her properly I would give her a minus 1000
I just saw Dr. Fischer at Bakerview Clinic because my clinic was closed today. I mentioned that I usually see a different doctor but my concern had me wanting to get checked out as soon as possible. I have been experience swelling, joint pain and "joint locking" for lack of a way to describe it, in my hands for months now. I was recently tested for Rheumatoid Arthritis and came back negative. My regular clinic doctor said to come back in for more tests if these were inconclusive. Which I plan on doing, but on Monday I lost feeling in my middle finger. I thought it was due to the cold but it hasn't gone away. Today, I saw Dr. Fischer - and I can tell you she didn't care at all. When I told her what my problem was she said "There's nothing I can do about it" and also said "So you're telling me if I were to stick a needle in your finger you wouldn't feel it?" Listen lady, we are not doctors. We come to you because there is something wrong and we need help to diagnose.
Did a urine test for a bladder infection in her office and tested positive. I told her I'm seeing a specialist (urologist) in 5 MONTHS from today for my bladder problems (that are so bad that I cannot sleep from the pain, yay Canada health system!), and so Dr. Fischer told me she couldn't help me, since "we need to be meticulous about this." Did she take my temperature? No. Did she perform any kind of examination? No. Do I have a kidney infection? Well, we're certainly not going to find out by seeing Dr. Fischer. She also told me it was terrible that I had 7 kids, that it was my mom's fault I have interstitial cystitis, that I should go on a juice cleanse, and that my husband should quit his job and stay home to help my blood pressure. MY CHILDREN AND MY HUSBAND ARE A BLESSING AND IT'S NOT MY FAULT I'M SICK BUT IT'S YOUR FAULT I'M STILL SICK YOU AWFUL DOCTOR.
saw her at after hours clinic in abby, she rushed through the appointment and was rude. Told her all my very obvious symptoms of mono, then she looks in my throat and tells me I have tonsillitis. After that she says I might have mono, and I'll need blood work done. She prescribed me penicillin, which makes you break out in hives if you have mono. now my entire body is covered in a rash. She rushed through the appointment in like 5 minutes, and then tells me that "it's my problem". obviously. Was a waste of my time, and now I'm more sick than I was just a couple of days ago.
I went to Dr Fischer about 8 years ago. I was happy to find a woman Dr taking new patients. I would regularly go for PAP tests, she told me everything was fine. I would complain about horrible side pains and other symptoms. She just disregarded me year after year. I finally got in with a new Doctor, who sent me to a specialist right away. They found that I had a large cyst twisting my right ovary (the reason for my horrible side pains) and I had very well progressed cervical cancer. I had to go for surgery right away on both. I would not recommend Dr. Fischer to anyone.
Doctor Fischer's diagnostic and prescribing skills are impeccable, her prognoses have all proven accurate and her every remedy and/or course of treatment of great benefit. A Medical Practitioner whose very superior intelligence impresses, Doctor Fischer is by no means intellectually narcissistic and combines the very best of science with the warmth and humility often referred to as a "good bedside manner." I pray and trust my recall of her warmth and competence will accompany me, eventually -- but not too soon -- into my Alzheimer's.
My sister-in-law went to see this doctor in Abbotsford just yesterday, January 16, 2012.....Ha!!! I am not the only one...I was sent by my Dr. to go see a Dr. Barbra Fishcher in Abbts. I had to first wait my turn to see her and that's ok. Then I had to drive 2 hours too go see her. Let me tell you when I walked out of there, I felt attacked and rejected. This women yelled at me and rushed through the whole appt. in about 4 mins. She has no compassion and was very rude and then when she was finished with me just walked out of the room..Anyway I just went to a sight where you can leave a comment about Drs. and guess what it seems she does this to a lot of women..I have one thing to say..I went here for some hormonal help and this uncaring women needs to put herself on some hormones!!! I just wish I would have spoke up to her cause obviously she thinks.."Her s..t doesn't stink"!!!.... my recommendation never go to this woman.
Dr. Fischer is an amazing doctor!! I went to her for a second opinion about a lump I discovered in my chest. I was so impressed by how nice, friendly, knowledgeable and honest she is. She did a thorough check up and I never felt rushed or uncomfortable, turns out that I had a fibro adenoma which had to be removed ASAP. She answered all of my questions in detail and even gave me a list of books and other resources to read up on about my condition and overall breast health. She also suggested which supplements to take to improve breast health and even though they sold them at the clinic she suggested other retailers. She is not a pill pusher and she won’t tell you what you want to hear. She is open to alternative medicine which is so refreshing to hear from a doctor. Hands down the best doctor I have ever gone to!!!!
