Patient Comments (4)

I have had major sinus issues since I was born. This is my second time back and I know why I left. Spent 5 minutes with the doctor, he looked in my nose and neglected my ear and say nothing he could do with no solutions. My copay for that 5 minute visit $350.00! Never again. No solutions!

Dr Fitzgerald was very rude & short felt like he was rushing us , also he talked to us like we were incompetent “I’m not gonna sit here and argue w/you,I’m the doctor and I’ve done this for a long time” while trying to explain my symptoms 2 him . I’m a cash patient so he gets his money right...more

I am writing this on behalf of both myself & my husband. We cannot be more thankful for being referred (by a friend who is a doctor) to this man. He was thorough in reviewing our concerns, communicated & expedited the needed direction quickly & is clearly technically skilled. More...more

My daughter needed her tonsils removed and Dr Fitzgerald was not only an amazing surgeon, but he took the time with my daughter to make sure she was comfortable, he took the time to care for her. This is a good man and a good doctor and I am so thrilled we found him for this procedure.
