I felt completely at ease with Dr. Fitzgibbons. He answered my questions and devised a reasonable course of treatment.
He was the best
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.
Professional, knowledgeable, personal, helpful.
