Never Again

The office and staff were great. My only dissatisfaction was with the doctor. She was rude, refused to answer ANY questions. I can not judge her medical expertise but I am very unhappy about her lack of communication with the patient. She rattled off to the person at the computer what might as well have been a foreign language to me and then told ME, nothing. She "may" be a great eye doctor but I can only judge her by her lack of any bedside manner. I had several visits before I gave up trying to get any information about my eyes from her. I will NEVER return. I found a new doc.

Not for me

My first visit to this office was great until Dr. Fitzmorris appeared on the scene. All the testing prior to seeing the physician was done by very caring staff members. I found Dr. Fitzmorris very curt, uninformative, abrupt, rude, etc. I was referred to her by my primary care physician. On the next visit with my PCP, I asked for a referral to another eye doctor. I was told that she was good and maybe just having a bad day. I went back for a second visit. She was even worse. I can not judge her ability but I sure can judge her bedside manner. I will not give her a third try. How many "bad" days should I excuse?
