Very disappointed in this practice. My father has been having health issues stemming from RA. He also developed “heart issues”. He saw Dr Fitzpatrick in the hospital. When he got out we made an appointment with his NP. He had a slew of tests in the hospital and his Np ordered more. They called my mom and told her it’s lung related referred to pulmonologist. Went for a second opinion yesterday and Monday he’s doing a heart cath. All tests showed heart issues.

The nurse at this practice left the room and let a 99 year old patient help himself off the examination table with assistance from his 90 year old wife. It did not go well, both fell.

The intelligence of this dr is lacking. After undergoing quadruple bypass surgery, my father was referred to him. Surgeon stated my dad would need a pacemaker however “Dr.” Fitzpatrick didn’t agree. 3 yrs later my father passed away from Cardiac Arrest. The pacemaker was life- or-death for my dad and this man couldn’t see that. I hope this “Dr” is reminded of his inadequacies and should NOT be trusted with the life of your loved ones. Poor bedside manner, always rushed, lack of explanations.
