Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have not had my procedure yet, How ever the office visit was great. The nurse, his P.A. and Dr, Fitzke were all very professional and answered my questions. The appointment was not rushed. I will reevaluate after my procedure.

Dr. Fitzke offered me a comprehensive plan for my surgery, taking time to explain the reasoning behind the plan and allowing time for questions. The surgery went smoothly and recovery was easy. Dr. Fitzke’s nurse Dani is also excellent - very responsive and helpful in addressing any concerns.

Dr. Fitzke and his staff were exceptional! I had surgery on 12/18/2017 at the Lincoln Surgical Center and the nurses there were fantastic as well. The professional and compassionate approach given to me by the nurses and Dr. Fitzke were very reassuring and appreciated. Dr. Fitzke is an excellent Surgeon that I will recommend to everyone that I come in contact with that is in need of a surgical procedure.
