Dr. Craig Fischer, chief of digestive surgical oncology and associate professor of surgery at Methodist Hospital, says he bought the 4.06-carat ring from Zadok's Jewelers in Houston on Aug. 8.
Fischer also wants his former fiancée, Nichole Johnson, to pay back $75,000 from a shared bank account and apartment lease, according to the lawsuit filed this week in Harris County.
...
The suit claims Johnson never intended to marry Fischer and used the relationship only as a means to get to the doctor's money.
...
Despite all the accusations, Fischer said he still cares for the woman he met this spring through mutual friends.
"I've been in love with her for a long time," said Fischer, 45, who is president of the Houston Surgical Society. "I still am, and I'm deeply hurt. This is tough because I really do love her."
Not her 'sugar daddy'
Fischer dismisses any suggestion that his former flame is a con artist.
"She is gainfully employed," he noted. "She's got a great job and makes a lot of money. It should not appear that I'm her 'sugar daddy.' She's my equal in every way."
"Our relationship has been one of joy and happiness amongst our mutual families and friends," who hosted a Sept. 10 engagement party for the couple, Fischer said.
...
Fischer is seeking the return of $50,000 for a lease he signed for an apartment the two were to share. He also wants his ex to pay back $25,000 that he had deposited in a joint checking account.
The lawsuit describes the funds as a gift "in contemplation of the parties' marriage."
It further alleges that Johnson cheated on Fischer, withdrew most of the funds in their bank account and has absconded with the ring and wedding funds.
...
Johnson has falsely accused Fischer of stalking her and has used social media, including Facebook, to engage in a smear campaign against him, the lawsuit states.
...
"(Johnson) has publicized false statements to thousands of Facebook 'friends' in order to defame (Fischer) in front of his colleagues in the medical profession and to destroy his stellar reputation in the medical community," the lawsuit states.

Dr. Craig Fischer, assistant professor of surgery at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, said he uses laparoscopy about 90 percent of the time for appendectomies.
"You put the appendix inside this tiny sterile bag, tie the bag's string so the appendix doesn't drip into the abdomen, and pull it through," Fischer said."The appendix is squishy, so it'll go through a smaller hole, and the bag cuts down on infection significantly."
Doctors say the bag doesn't work in a traditional procedure, possibly because the incisions create a bigger pool in which the bacteria can swim.In laparoscopy, the appendix doesn't move until it's time to remove it, Fischer said.
...
Fischer said he draws the line at using laparoscopy to remove an appendix that he believes has already burst, because it takes too long.
