    Dr. Fitzpatrick has been my endocrinologist for about 5 years. She gave me excellent advice, guidance and proper prescription to control my blood sugar. My A1C has been under control. I trust Dr. Fitzpatrick's judgement and recommendation. I am very pleased being her patient. I understand she will open her own private practice in Doylestown, PA. in early 2017. My wife and I will move along with her.

    This was the worst medical experience of my life. Dr Fitzpatrick used me as a Guinea pig. She never explained anything to me. She wanted to show 2 girls in her office what a needle biopsy was like. She was explaining things to them and not to me. She did not use any numbing agent in me. After the first needle I thought I was done. She said no 2 more. I started crying. She asked me why I was crying and that she had never seen anything like that. Before going to Dr Fitzpatrick I felt fine.

    I finally found an endocrinologist who listens to what I have been saying for years about my condition. She gives me a voice in the decisions reagrding treatment. Its hard finding even an endocrinologist these days, let alone one who's compassionate.

    My endocrinologist recently retired and I was told by one of my friends I should go see Dr. Fitzpatrick. She has a long list of patients waiting to see her, but after she reviewed my labs the office staff got me in much sooner. I found Dr. Fitzpatrick to be very knowledgable, helpful and kind. Her staff were also very courteous- they told me she runs right on time and she did. I am really glad to have established my care there.

    Dr. Fitzpatrick helped me balance my thyroid function, it had been widely erratic. She made 2 simple suggestions in the manner I was taking my pills and my levels have been perfect for the first time in years. She actually listened to my concerns, and was interested in how this has been impacting how I feel.
