The fact that Dr Fuchs teaches shows in his care; he explains things carefully and listens to me. Instead of recommending expensive and unnecessary tests, he actually examines each of my joints and explains changes to me. I've seen him for over 20 yrs and he's the best.

I have had severe pain (knees) for several months - along with multiple medical issues including recent short hospitalization - Dr. Fuchs, aware of all medical history & is a caring, knowledgeable, compassionate physician. #5. No test.
Patient | May 3, 2016

Dr. Mawn referred me to him thinking he was a vascular Dr. My hand and arm have been swollen for over a year and I have seen several Drs trying to find out what is wrong. This was a nice Dr. but not the Dr. I should have been seeing. I could not say if I would refer him because he could not treat me. But he was concerned. He referred me to therapy for wrapping.
