in Spotsylvania, VA |
I had bariatric surgery (gastric bypass R-N-Y) in June 2013. I lost over 200 lb in the first year. I feel wonderful! I am 67 yrs old and feel younger and better than I have in many years. Dr. Fitzer is the best surgeon in the world and I am so thankful I found him.

I would recommend Dr. Fitzer to anyone! He performed gastric bypass surgery on myself and my son in January 2016. My son as lost 130 pounds and I have lost 101 pounds. His office staff is excellent and very sensitive to our needs. I went from 11 prescriptions meds to one (eye drops). I haven't felt this good in fifty years!
