Verified Patient Reviews
Except for the charges to be more than I expected, the entire office, including attending nurses (including x-ray) and front office were courteous, friendly, helpful and professional. I consider this office to be very well run and organized.
Original ZocDoc appointment had to be cancelled and rescheduled by the staff. Doctor's visit was very good. However, the staff forgot about me in the exam room for about a hour before notifying the doctor.
Such a good seasoned doctor. Very knowledgeable and approachable
Dr. Fitzgerald was great and very thorough. He was a pleasant man and physician. Did like the fact he is conservative with treatment and doesn't just jump right into surgery if it isn't needed. Love the Patient Portal they use, makes updating and looking at your health information easy.
Everyone in this office, from the front desk, nurses and Dr. Fitzgerald were incredibly nice and efficient. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Fitzgerald and confident with his findings about my condition.
Visit was great, he gave me options and what he thought was best.
