Great doctor, amazing staff and facility. I initially meet with the Dr's PA Megan. She was amazing and provided the care I need to treat my condition. Dr Fitzmaurice performed my surgery and I'm amazed at the outcome. I'm happy i took the recommendation of a friend who was a patient and made an appointment to visit his office.

I had my carpol tunnel sugery last Mon. 18th. So far I am experiencing more trouble than before i had the sugery. You would think after a week I would have some relief. I'm all bruised on my arm and stomach from part of this. Sure hope I will get the results I deserve.

Overall I would say, The staff/doctor do not care for patient needs.. I was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel and scheduled for surgery. The surgery wait is ridiculous, for me was about 3 moths. Symptoms continued to increase, was not allowed to get any leave from work, had to wait until surgery. I had to pull teeth to get the fmla paperwork filled out correctly for the surgery. Staff constantly questioned my pain level which I think it's very childish, we are all adults here.

3 cancellation of surgery since September. He only does surgery 1x a month for Medicare. if you'd like to take 8 months to get your knuckles and a pinky done come see him! The ring figure I won't count since it had to be corrected... Look elsewhere and avoid the stress! The update.. after this review corrective surgery on the ring finger happened a few days later the 18th. Last week Thursday was told to come in a few days later to remove the stitches. Verified next scheduled surgery for the 24th

I have had 2 surgeries on each hand to fix pain in thumb joints. That is a total of 4 surgeries and they have all failed. Dr. Fitz suggested each hand needed an additional surgery....I declined and went to another doctor.

Excellent initial experience. Everyone e is knowledgeable, friendly, helpful. Doctor is most likeable, knowledgeable, and very down to earth. My hand procedure is scheduled for Friday.
I had surgery for Dequervains . It had been two months since the surgery and my pain relief is great! Thanks :-)
