The best Dr I could have asked for! I was suffering from tachycardia for almost 30 years! I had an ablation 7 years ago with another Dr, that unfortunately did not work. My pulse was getting as high as 230 beats per minute. Got referred by another top surgeon to Dr. Fitzgerald. Amazing Dr , professional, great attitude and knowledgeable. I gained my confidence in him immediately. He performed my ablation and could target the problem and cured me for ever. I am living a healthy great life and owe

I have been seen by at least six other EP's over the years and I have to say that for the first time ever, I have found one that actually seems to care about my condition and my feelings. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an EP. He is the best; not only in knowledge, but in bedside manner. I truly believe I've found the best of the best and this includes his office staff as well - wonderful people!!!

Dr. Fitzgerald is the only electrophysiologist I would recommend in the state of NC. He is well respected in the field for his work in developing the mapping techniques used in EP labs around the world. We are lucky to have him in High Point!!!

The doctor is knowledgable, takes his time with the patient and answers questions that are clearly understandable. It is difficult to get an appointment with him in a timely manner. I believe that is not the fault of the Doctor but of the office administration.

Dr Fitz will not stop until you are cured. He recently saved my life by diagnosing me with blockage issues where another cardio Dr. had prescribed a few pills. I have no doubt I would be dead had I not seen Dr. Fitz who set me on the track to life saving bypass surgery. This is twice he has saved my life, the first being 15 years ago with serious A-Fib issues corrected.

Dr Fitzgerald saved my fathers life. After multiple procedures with diminishing hope, Dr Fitzgerald came to Carolina Cardiology. He is an incredible electrophysiologist. He answers all questions thoroughly and takes time to listen to the patient and family. I would recommend this doctor and his team at carolina cardiology.
