In Memory of Dr. Michael Fischer MD

in-memory-of-michael-fischer Comprehensive Neurological Solutions, and Advanced Pain Institute, lost a caring and compassionate physician, and the world has lost an amazing human being.

Dr. Michael Fischer was a founder of Comprehensive Neurological Solutions and a man who devoted his life to making a difference in not just his neurology patients lives, but also the world which surrounded him. His vivacious laughter, gentle smile, and compassionate soul will be missed by his patients, fellow medical professionals, and his family here at CNS and API.

Dr. Michael Fischer was a native of New Orleans, Louisiana. He attended Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center for medical school, where he subsequently completed his internship training in Internal Medical and residency training in Neurology. Dr. Fischer was fellowship trained in Neuromuscular diseases and clinical neurophysiology. He had extensive experience in EMG’s, nerve conduction studies and treatment of neuropathy, spinal disorders affecting the nerves, nerve injuries, inherited nerve disorders, brachial plexus disorders, diseases of the muscles and many other neuromuscular disorders.

Dr. Fischer was quoted as saying, “I strongly believe that it is my role as a physician to help my patients understand their medical problems and the options available, allowing them to make informed, guided decisions for themselves. Truly listening to the problem from the patient’s perspective is the most important step on the path to accurate diagnosis in Neurology. Most neurological problems are lifelong, so it is important to me to form an empathetic and caring relationship with my patients”

To all of our patients, and the medical community, we thank each of you for placing your trust in Dr. Fischer and for giving him the precious gift of making his dreams come true. His vision of CNS became a reality due to each and every one of you. His spirit will forever be the foundation of Comprehensive Neurological Solutions.
