Philip R. Fischer, M.D., is a pediatrician in the division of General Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine at Mayo Clinic Children's Center in Rochester, Minnesota, and a Professor of Pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science. He has published widely in a variety of medical journals and serves as editor of several journals that are focused on pediatrics. His research interests include chronic fatigue in adolescents, adolescent autonomic dysfunction, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and pediatric nutritional deficiencies. Dr. Fischer's work has contributed to an increased awareness of autonomic dysfunction as a cause of chronic fatigue in adolescents. This has prompted better diagnosis and management for tired teenagers, and as a result, thousands of adolescents now have lives with improved function.
