Missed part of the lipoma he was to remove off of my back. Offered to do another surgery at no charge but I would have still been responsible for the hospital part of the cost.

Dr Fitzpatrick performed emergency surgery shortly I checked into Mercy Fairfield.. A CT scan revealed a perforated colon. Dr. Fitzpatrick reviewed the CT scan results in detail and explained the possible outcomes of the surgery. He removed 4 inches of my colon and I had an excellent recovery. He is not only a great surgeon, but also is very personable and caring. I give him an A+ on the whole experience.. I wish all doctors were this good.

Dr. Fitzpatrick is a fantastic man. He has the greatest bedside manner... makes you feel so comfortable; there is no arrogance about him. Even-though he was only a consultant to me & did not operate on me He explained things well to me & knew his trade well. , I DEFINITELY would go to him if I needed some type of general surgery.i really really liked him.

Dr. Fitzpatrick is world class. I'm 34 and last year I came to Dr. Fitz with the concern that I had an inguinal hernia. He quickly confirmed and gave me a path forward. He was very personable and thorough in his explanations of the condition and the recovery, while also carrying a no fluff or BS attitude. He is the perfect balance of precision and personality for a doctor. I highly recommend.
