Patient Comments (4)

I am 27 years old with a very bad degenerative spin (runs in the family). After visiting with several different doctors, I was recommend to see Dr. Brian Fitzpatrick. I could not be more thrilled with the outcome of my surgery. Dr. Fitzpatrick gave me my life back, not a day goes by that I don't think of the second chance he gifted me. He has a wonderful bedside manor and explains things in a way in which his patients will fully understand. Thank you for making life great again for me.

Dr Fitzpatrick was truly excellent, both in knowledge and 'bedside manner' - double thumbs up!
in Chandler, AZ |
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.
