Dr. Fitzpatrick is one of the best neurosurgeons you can find. He is professional and is highly regarded by his peers, co-workers and staff. If you need the skilled hands of a neuro-surgeon and someone who truly cares about his patients select this physician.

Went in skeptically from experiences with other doctors. One meeting with Dr. Fitzpatrick and the solution was obvious to him. He got me in right away. He was to the point. Highly skilled. Excellent staff. Solved my problem. I had instant relief after my surgery. This was a life changing, positive experience for me.
