Earlier last month I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I don't need to tell you receiving this news was devastating in itself. On my first visit with Dr. Fitzharris his approached was directed but comforting at the same time. He assured me we were going to get through it in which we did. In my opinion he saved my life! If I were to suggest a surgeon with his skills along with a magnificent bedside manner Dr. Fitzharris is that surgeon.

Excellence from pre-op instruction, to 7 hours 15 minutes of what must have been an exhausting operation, to post-op in hospital to after hospital follow-ups. Dr. Fitzharris made sure that I understood what was going to happen, and what was needed to become whole again. I was on my way to die w/o medical care, and he not only gave me excellent medical care, but he did it in such a manner that I understood and felt comfortable about it. His staff & the others who took care of me were all "Aces"!
