Masaru Fisher, MD, Psychiatrist in San Francisco
I look at the process of healing as a collaborative one. Your role is to share with me your concerns and what issues effect your daily life. Whether it be depression, anxiety or any other mental heath topic, early identification is our goal. I then use my expert training and experience to thoroughly assess and recommend the best course of treatment for you to consider. Working together we will navigate through the healing process for you to find a happy and satisfying quality of life.
I graduated medical school in New York and completed residency in San Mateo, CA as Chief Resident. I have extensive experience working in many practice settings with individuals all ages; this allows me to offer you the most appropriate and effective psychological and medication treatments.
I am a Board Certified (ABPN) psychiatrist and enjoy practicing in my hometown of San Francisco where am on faculty and teach at UCSF Medical Center. I do not directly accept insurance however I can provide a receipt-for-services. Please contact me with any questions you may have about rates or scheduling.
