Would have selected 0 stars if I could, waited over a half hour to be seen than when I was seen I was asked how he could help me like I'm the doctor I felt like I was talking to a stranger not a doctor waste of my time.

Dr. Fitzgerald was extremely nice with great bedside manners. I was very impressed. I never got the impression that he thought he was better than me and that he looked down on me. It was a pleasure to work with. I will recommend him to anyone. PS: It's hard to believe how young he is.

He is not an honest Dr. I went to local h and surgeon and viewed same xrays I need surgery. I did turn Fitzgerald in. He don't listen to anything I said. I'm in the most of contacting the attorney general too. Ty, Rosemary Burns

Dr Fitzgerald was very caring. He took time to listen to me, even though the office is clearly a busy place! He answered all of my questions, and encouraged me to let him know what I needed.

Dr fitzgerald put my wrist back together after i fell and shattered several bones. The result after physical therapy is i have great range of motion and strength, better than i could have hoped after the accident. It looks good minmal scar. And no nerve or tactile issues. I strongly recommend the Dr.

Found Dr. Fitzgerald to be a physician who cares about his patients and how they feel. He offers alternatives to surgery which is welcomed and only wants the best outcome for the patient. Would definitely recommend this physician to anyone having hand issues.
