"I absolutely love Dr. Fisco and Kathryn Harkenrider! They are very personable and professional. They also treat me with respect and acknowledge what I say about my symptoms and concerns. They answer questions thoroughly and spend the necessary time with me. They never rush me through and I truly appreciate that."
"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."
"Kathryn Harkenrider is exceptional! I feel I'm in good hands and will continue my wellness visits with her. I have and will continue to recommend this practice to family and friends."
