Dr. Fitzgerald has always listened to my concerns. He approaches my health needs in a holistic manner first thru exercise, then medication and the a procedure if necessary. Dr. Fitzgerald and his staff are always professional even when I am hurting and not very polite. I wish to thank him and his staff for walking with me in my healing journey.

Extremely organized system from checkin to checkout. You get to know the staff over time and they inturn you as well. Dr Fitzgerald is the most compassionate health provider I have encountered! He listens! He follows through with the rest of your healthcare team as necessary and advocates for you if needed.

I'm 62 and Dr. Fitzgerald is the best, most attentive physician that has ever treated me. I have several pain issues and he has taken time to address all of my chronic pain. We work together in many ways to keep me up and working; I do my exercises and Dr. Fitzgerald injects joints and nerves plus performs radiofrequency rhizotomy on my neck about every 9 months. I can work and do most of the things I have always done for fun since Dr. Fitzgerald started caring for me. He is the best!

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.
