Patient Comments (2)
In clinic Dr F was communicative articulating empathy. But in operating room there was a palpable hostile vibe fleshed out by nurses working at heart attack speed seemingly instigated by an impatient DR F. Dr F in a condescending manner, told me in essence, either stay still or no procedure . AS I had only been on the table a minute his chastisement was uncalled for. When addressing my concern he said I was big and it was a safety issue and that I didn't have to come back! Patient profiling?

Had the first of three series of neck injections foe my headaches. Already had both sides of neck injections to help neck pain. These I am getting now will be a series of three to attack the migraine itself. Dr Fitzgerald and staff are very caring and stay with you throughout the entire process. Always asking if I was comfortable or if there anything they could do to help me with discomfort. So far through all the sets of injections I have had no real pain at all, during or after procedures.
