"Dr. Fisco called me personally to explain blood-test results! He reassured me by empowering me with information about my husband's condition and then closed his conversation with: "Hang in there, you can do it!" I was very grateful for his personal touch in a challenging care-giving situation."
"The office staff is always professional, helpful and nice. I have been a patient of Dr. Fisco's for many years and he is an excellent doctor! He's never in a hurry and he always takes his time to listen to you, answers any questions you may have and explains things in such a way that you understand."
