in Atlanta, GA |
Very competent and thorough!! Spends plenty of time to get to know the patient and diagnose the problem! Was referred here by my colon & rectal doctor for an "upper check". Problem diagnosed quickly with appropriate remedies prescribed! First class operation!

Dr Fixelle is a very caring Dr, Spends the time you need to discuss the issues. I would Highly recommend him.
Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Fixelle was very personable, very focused on making me comfortable with him and the procedure. I especially liked drifting off to Jazz music before the procedure. Afterwards he explained in detail about what he did and what he found; he even included photos of areas that required and received attention.
