Her passion for living a healthy and active lifestyle greatly influences her approach to helping her patients on their journey to achieving optimal health and well-being

What is Preventive Medicine?

A preventive medicine specialist is a physician who, through additional training, has become an expert in methods for maintaining good health and preventing disease. These specialists are the doctors people see when they are generally well and want to either learn how to maintain their current health or acquire better health.

Dr. Fischer maintains a healthy and active lifestyle and has witnessed first-hand the amazing health benefits of preventive medicine in her own life. She is passionate about helping others achieve the healthy life they desire and deserve, and experience the positive effects that come from such lifestyle changes and maintenance.

Based on their particular needs, Dr. Fischer advises her patients on specific diets, exercise regimens, and lifestyle habits. She takes into account a patient’s nutrition deficiencies, physical and cardiovascular capabilities, and lifestyle habits in order to advise about specific supplements or medications, how much physical activity to undertake, and which habits should be broken and replaced with more positive behavior.
