Doctor Michelle M. Fischer, MD received her B.S./M.S. in Biochemistry, with Honors, from Stanford University, her M.D. from the University of Wisconsin, and her Residency in General Surgery from UCSF/Saint Mary's Hospital in San Francisco.
She was board certified in General Surgery and was a practicing trauma surgeon for 5 years before changing her focus to Women's Health in 1992. Since that time she has specialized in women's health and integrative/complementary anti-aging and wellness medicine.
Her practice involves all aspects of women's and men's primary care, office gynecology, bio-identical hormone balancing, salivary and functional testing, detoxification, overall wellness evaluations, risk reduction/life skills counseling, and preventative medicine.
Dr. Fischer characterizes her practice method as "fostering wellness from within" because it is proactive and patient-centered, root-cause versus symptom focused, and wellness-fostering versus disease treatment oriented. Her passion and thus her mission is to empower her clients with the "tools" to optmize their wellness and promote their own healthy aging.
Dr. Fischer relocated her practice from California to Georgia in 2004. She now practices in Sandy Springs, just North of Atlanta.
