My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Fitzmorris for quite a few years.. I must say that I am very pleased with the professional and caring treatment that we have always received in her office. Her staff both the nurses and the clerical staff are always pleasant and efficient in taking care of us. I especially appreciate that Dr Fitzmorris goes the extra mile in not only treatment of the condition but compassion for our concerns, something I consider an attribute of a wonderful doctor

The average wait time is several hours; then you walk out with a prescription that is all wrong. Dr. Fitzmorris gave my daughter reading glasses when she went in for problems with nighttime distance vision. She did a reexam and after 30 minutes of apologizing and trying to defend it, she told us to come back for a third try for her to get it right the next day when my daughter's eyes were "more tired"!?? She also messed up my husband's prescription. HORRIBLE
Metairie, LA |
1) The staff is rude 2)my appointment was for 3:15 but I was not seen until 5:30 3) Dr.fitzmorris rushed through the little time we had together and was reluctant to answer the few questions I had 4) the doctor did not take time to explain a newly diagnosed condition 5) I was asked to sign documents even though I could not read anything since my eyes were dilated
in Reserve, LA |
Very complete exam of all eye areas. Excellent explanation of any questions.
in New Orleans, LA |
Experience, thoroughness, and overall concern for my vision care was exemplary. She took care of my emergency (scratched cornea) on the same day.
