I can't say enough about how refreshing it was to find a doctor like Dr. Fitzhugh. He is more than just a doctor, he is a compassionate, understanding, and knowledgeable person who uses humor as part of his treatment. Can't ask for more than that from someone who hears negativity all day, every day. All doctors, no matter what their practice, should have Dr. Fitzhugh's disposition and approach to helping patients. And, his receptionist was just as animated and friendly!!!

It's impossible to get a call back from them, don't waste your time and just call a different doctor. I left several messages asking for a call back and I've never heard back now in several weeks. Very poor office apparently so I wouldn't trust them to return calls when in need.
