Beverly A. Fischer, M.D. has a passion. She believes that plastic surgery makes a profound difference in people's lives. It creates rewards for both the patient and the doctor. As one of her patients recently wrote after surgery, "I could never thank you enough...I feel normal and really good about myself." Dr. Fischer listens to her patients, she understands their needs, she feels their pain, she hugs them and she cares for them.
Dr. Fischer, a Maryland native, chose to study at Johns Hopkins because of their world renown reputation in the medical field.
