"Felt his manner was cold and spent more time looking at computer than engaging face to face with me. His post visit notes were good and better than his in person explanations. He could improve on his bed side manner"

"Dr. Fetzer was terrific. He didn't rush through the visit. He gave me plenty of time to talk to him and he answered all my questions. I also like it when doctors let me talk very briefly about other things like football, or the weather etc. For me it makes the visit like seeing a friend. Dr. Fetzer is a caring doctor. And when I have emailed him several times with questions, he always responded within a short time."
