I was referred to Dr. Fitzgibbons for treatment of varicose veins. I had throbbing pain in both legs, suffered from occasional swelling after going on a run and severe itchiness around bulging varicose veins that wake me up in the middle of the night. Dr. Fitzgibbons assessed my legs and explained the issues and treatment options, which would be varied and layered in order to not only treat the root cause but also the resulting bulging veins. I appreciated his in-depth approach and the pictures he showed me regarding what to expect. He's supported by a terrific team which is as professional, approachable and forthcoming with information as he is. From scheduling, billing, technicians and assistants his team operated as an extension of the quality service and care Dr. Fitzgibbons provided me. I'm happy to say that after several treatments addressing the veins, that I no longer have the throbbing pain, nor the swelling of my ankles post running and itchiness no longer wakes me up

I went to Doctor Fitzgibbons for my varicose veins in both of my legs. He not only helped me with the pain I was having, but he and his office were wonderful and professional. I would trust him with any medical procedure he performs.

I usually never write reviews, but I believe Dr. Fitzgibbons deserves to be recognized for being an excellent doctor and extraordinary human being. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the professionalism, kindness, patience and wonderful care the doctor and his staff provided. Dr. Fitzgibbons made me feel comfortable during my sclerotherapy procedures and made sure that I was well taken care of and had an excellent outcome. Thanks to his expertise with sclerotherapy not only do I no longer have any pain and cramps in my legs, but he also gave me the confidence to wear dresses and gave me a noticeable difference in my outlook on life.

Dr. Fitzgibbons is a brilliant physician. I have lived with leg pain when sitting for extended periods for most of my life. Other doctors said there was nothing wrong with my legs. I thought it was something I just had to live with. After just one EVLA Dr. Fitzgibbons, I noticed a difference in my pain level. After a couple of treatments the pain was completely gone. I would recommend him to anyone who needed care.

I have spent a good chunck of time interacting with doctors of all types as a sufferer of more than 1 form of chronic illness and without a doubt Dr Fitzgibbons is one of my top three Dr's of all time. I travel a couple hours to get to him anytime I have to get a new port-a-cath and he's worth it. When every other surgeon has sworn that placing a new line would be all but impossible he has done it time after time. He also has such a great bedside manner, is very down to earth, and has a great sense of humor.

I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Fitzgibbons because he is not only brilliant at what he does, but he's kind to all of his patients. After two pregnancies, my legs were unrecognizable due to vein issues, making it terribly painful to walk. Dr. Fitzgibbons explained the entire procedure to me before he began which helped ease my fears. He and his team of medical assistants have worked seamlessly during every procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Fitzgibbons! He is the best at what he does.
