Patient Comments (2)

in Bend, OR
Can't leave him a positive review. On my last visit to my eye doctor, he asked me why I hadn't followed his recommendation to get my eye lids reduced. I said I just had it done in Bend, Oregon. He wanted to know who did it. I had the surgery with Dr. Fitzsimmons, and nothing looks different...more

Dr. Fitzsimmons has performed two surgeries to remediate my sagging eyelids and brows. He is an artist, as proven by my outcomes! He is kind, patient, knowledgeable, and takes the time to explain what will happen and to answer questions.
