from Jane in CA February 25, 2014 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

My brain was injured by an undiagnosed hole in my heart that resulted in multiple misdiagnosed strokes followed by a procedure to close the hole that left me with permanent damage to my brain. I have a chronic medical condition that can only be treated by chronic wellness.

I have a wonderful team of health professionals who treat my body, mind, and spirit.

A year ago, I realized… See more

from Colleen in CA February 24, 2014 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

I have been a patient of Dr. Fischmann for 24 years. I admire and love him for all he has given and done for me. He has the wisdom to know what is best worth knowing and shows it by doing what is best for his patients. It has been said in a quote: (Scientists know only what love does. Love, properly applied, could virtually empty our asylums, our prisons, our hospitals. Love is a touchstone of… See more

Dr. Fischmann is an amazing person and an outstanding doctor.
Over the past years my husband and I know we can count on Dr. Fischmann to
be available when we need him. He is a very special person and we consider him our friend.

from Dee in CA February 10, 2014 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

Thus, for 15 years, I did not get appropriate medical care nor did I get any preventive care. Because of this, I missed many days of work and had many days of feeling miserable; I was not a good doctor for myself, but I felt I was… See more

from Penni in CA February 9, 2014 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

If I listed all the qualities I would want in my Doctor, Dr George Fischmann has them all. Besides being a brilliant physician, he is kind, caring, understanding, patient and everything else you would want your Doctor to be. Bottom line. I love him.

from Eleanor in CA February 8, 2014 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

Dr. Fischmann has been my physician for many years and I would have no other. He is very caring and compassionate and has always been there for me, not only fulfilling my medical needs, but in all other aspects of my life, helping me to solve many problems that are not physical. I consider him a friend as well as my physician. I gladly travel 100 miles one way for my visits since I know I… See more

from Spencer in CA February 6, 2014 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

If I never met Dr. Fischmann, I would have certainly died from Peritoneal Mesothelioma back in 1998. Since first meeting Dr. Fischmann in 1994-5, he has guided me with his brilliant knowledge and demeanor! Not only my doctor, but my friend and advisor helping thru different life challenging treatments over the years. His belief that I could survive a form of cancer that is nearly 100 fatal… See more

from Phyllis in CA February 5, 2014 for George E. Fischmann, MD, FACP

The difference between Dr. Fischmann and other internists is like night and day. From the first day I met Dr. Fischmann I felt a sense of safety, comfort, quality
and intelligence. Dr. Fischmann listens, is attentive, and cares. I am grateful to have found Dr. Fischmann and would highly recommend him to anybody who wants a thoughtful and highly capable internist.
