Enduring extensive cancer surgeries and lengthy, often gruelling and somewhat traumatizing post op procedures, to say I am leery of seeing a Dr. is an understatement. HOWEVER, Dr. Fitzgibbon immediately eliminated any fear I had. His manner was calm, sincere, and directed to ME, not my chart. He explained my results clearly, thoroughly, and made sure I understood - never appearing condescending nor impatient. Dr. Fitzgibbon is a fantastic doctor, but more importantly, a caring human. When he performed a very complicated, intricate hand surgery on a most dear family member, he made sure that all of us knew before going into surgery what was involved. After surgery he came out and spoke to us IN DETAIL about the ( ?? successful) surgery. Thank you to Dr. Fitzgibbon and a most kind, caring, efficient staff. The Best! Carol Marvil Quase

Dr. Peter Fitzgibbons gives off good vibes and energy. That is very important to me being a Spiritual person. My first vist, I had my Adult Son with me whom is my Full Time Health Care Provider. We both felt at peace with Dr. Fitzgibbons caring personality and his excellent medical advise regarding my Arthritis in my left hand. He made me feel at ease with not getting surgery and to see Steph about a Custom Hand Brace. Steph did an amazing job fitting me in right away. With getting older, my advise is to see a Specialist for each body parts with an Orthopaedic/Orthopedic. I Highly recommend Dr. Peter Fitgibbons-Hand Surgeon and Steph Clement -Occupational Hand Therapist.

Dr. Fitzgibbons is very knowledgeable and very stay up to date with current medical research. I have a wrist pain and finger fracture and Dr. Fitzgibbons manage to solve my problem without surgery. Now I have moved out of DC area, when I contacted him for medical advice for other things, he still patiently explain to me and help me find a solution. He is the best doctor I have seen!

Dr. Fitzgibbons is very easy to talk to and takes as much time as is necessary to explain your situation thoroughly. He listens attentively and very patiently answers all my questions. He is a rare find today, as doctors tend to spend as little time with their patients as possible. Besides all I have stated above, he is also really nice. I highly recommend this doctor.

I had medical urgency on my hand. Dr. Fitzgibbons promptly assessed the issue, ordered imaging, and recommendend few imaging centers (I didn't know existed) far better than Wash.Radiol.Association. He promptly called me after reviewing imaging report, explained in detail issue and told me what to do about it. He called afterhours, eventhough he had surgeries all day. In 20 yrs, it's the first time a physician called me to follow up! Staff is a bit sloppy, but I would def. see him again.

Dr. Fitzgibbons is FANTASTIC!!! I had complicated elbow fracture. He performed my surgery and it was a success. After the surgery he referred me to excellent occupational therapist, Steph Clement. I am happy to report that three months after surgery I can do everything I want with my arm. Dr. Fitzgibbons is at the top of his game when it comes to surgical aspects and patient care. I highly recommend him.

He was very helpful the first visit. He finally told me, after 4 years of searching, that I didn't have carpal tunnel, which made me happy, because I knew it wasn't. HOWEVER, the second visit, he was very rude and he did not want to solve my problem after I drove 30 miles to MD from VA. He told me there was nothing he would do and time would fix it. NO, time will NOT fix this, as it has gotten worse and worse over 4 years! This is my dominant hand, I'm only 23, and I need to be able to use it.

I had minimum delay in getting an appointment. He listens well and seems to ask all the right questions. He acts immediately on a course of action that he explains. The outcomes with estimated times are explained in a layman's terms. Future options are likewise outlined well. I can't think of any deficiency in him. The desk staff at the New Mexico office could use some customer service training, however.

Dr. Fitzgibbons is an amazing surgeon. I had surgery several weeks ago on my elbow. His care and compassion was remarkable. He takes his time to really listen to his patients and never rushes his appointments. He also explains everything in detail and answers all questions with a kind demeanor. Even Post-op he follows your progress to make sure that you are healing and takes the time to call you if you have any questions!
