Thank you Dr. Fitzgerald!

Thank you so very much for taking the time to meet me at your office Sunday to check a concern I had with my left eye. After examining me you referred me to an excellent eye surgeon who repaired my cornia the very next day. I'm home on the mend thanks to both of you. God bless you both for the wonderful, caring work you do. I'm ever grateful.

Terrible experience

Extremely rude and uncaring physician. Wait time was long, almost half an hour after I checked in was I taken care of by the staff. The doctor herself was arrogant and seemed to not care for my eyes. I have been having deteriorating eyesight for the past two years and went to Dr Fitzgerald hoping for some help, but she impolitely dismissed my concerns and repeated interrupted me. Not interested in patient care at all and her bedside manner towards me was condescending to the point of being downright rude. Avoid Dr Fitzgerald at all costs.
