In and out of the exam room in maybe 3 or 4 minutes for a flu shot that was almost painless!
I ALWAYS recommend Alameda Family Physicians and I know of at least 5 people who have followed my recommendation in the the last few years and are current, happy patients.
Dr Fisher actually pulled a medical book out to show me the human body and what was causing my problem which I then could see and understand
Excellent provider, explained possible treatments & all applicable concerns for each. Very thorough, efficient, and helpful!

Dr Fisher is a beloved by all of her patients. Her reputation is well know in the city Alameda.
Dr. Mary Fisher is an extraordinary doctor. She is thorough, caring, and compassionate. I am so lucky to have her as my primary physician.
Dr. Fisher knows how to show genuine concern while being professional. I appreciated the care she provided.
I think my dr is a good Dr-- but I feel she does not manage my/her time well. Sometimes I have lots of questions. If she does not have tiem to cover these questions of mine, she should just tell me that I need to make a follow up appointment about those issues as they come up in conversation, instead of trying to address them, and then back tracking and saying she does not have enough time to talk about it and then getting upset with me that I have questions. I am fine with being told that I need to make a follow up appointment about an issue that I want to cover, but being told I bring up too many questions in a visit feels like the wrong thing to say to a patient. I also feel that she is often flustered and rushed at the end of our visit, which does not make me leave the appointment with confidence. I'm not sure it it is her or the stress being put on her by the Stanford System, but something is wrong.
She called in the evening but I was out so she talked to my nephew who is my contact person and told him of our time together and my health condition which I appreciated very much.
I have been a patient of Dr. Fisher for several years. She has always been up front/truthful about my health issues in a very professional and interested manner.
I love Dr. Fisher!
Dr. Fisher and her PA work with me as part of a team to take care of my health. Very happy with my "teammates"!
Love Dr. Fisher. Have been going to her for many years. Always courteous,thorough and caring. Hope to bring my daughter to her one day.
Dr. Fisher is the best doctor I've ever had
good
One of the best doc visits I've had.
Dr. Fisher has a sense of humor and isn't arrogant.
Dr. Fisher is a truly exceptional family doctor. She has a rare combination of deep knowledge, multifaceted experience, a broad network of associated medical specialists, and the ability to understand the needs of each individual patient. With this rare combination of assets, she figures out the root of the medical issue, refers the patient to appropriate specialists to determine the best resolution of the issue, makes sure the patient is on board with that resolution, and follows up to make sure that the resolution is, in fact, effective in dealing with the medical issue. I've already recommended Dr. Fisher to others who asked me if I know of a good doctor, and I will continue to recommend her if asked.
I continued to be very pleased with Dr. Fisher.
absolutely love the medical staff, MD, NP etc. after years of subpar medical groups, it's a huge relief to have found Dr. Shah and the Stanford team. I moved to a different city but am keeping the group of doctors I now have, despite having to travel up to 45 mins to see someone.
Dr. Fisher explained everything to me and made sure that I understood her treatment plan.
dr Fisher is the best doctor I have ever had. She is extremely well-informed, knowledgeable, and helpful. She seems to have the latest information on my ailments, and I think she is giving me the treatment plan for my situation. I trust her judgement 100% and am very grateful for her care. She explains things well and I know she has an excellent rapport with me. I always recommend her to my friends and family. Sinething is wrong with this online survey - it's not letting me cursor up. I will tryto write a separate letter with additional feedback and mail it to you
