I really appreciate how clearly he explained my diagnosis. Many doctors seem surprised or irritated when I ask a lot of questions -- not Dr. Fitzgibbons. He also told me what to expect going forward and what might happen. Why can't all doctors be so straightforward? It was a great appointment.

Dr. Fitzgibbons was excellent. He came into the room fairly quickly. He was open and receptive to my story and what had caused my injury/pain. He touched my leg, knee & foot during his diagnosis and did some initial stretches to ensure there was no real injury and/or a need for an e-ray. He suggested a little physical therapy and slow down on re-entry to exercise.

This was a repeat visit for us, for two separate issues with two different family members. We knew right away we wanted to go back to Dr. Fitzgibbons. He is knowledgeable and explains everything clearly and in detail. Gotta love going to the doctor, getting expert treatment, and learning something at the same time!

Ended up getting a second consult. He was very nice but I know something is up with my back he barely took a look at x ray results. Only recommended PT and nothing else while I was dying in pain. Went to see someone else. But office staff was awesome.
