Specialties

Dr. James G Fitkin has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

5 STAR DOCTOR

I think Dr. Fitkin is the best primary care physician that I have ever had. I've tried others, but never received the care and consideration that I have from Dr. Fitkin. This necessitated a return to him. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable, intently listens to my systems. He is very conscientous and considerate. I have a real sense of security knowing that all I have to do is call his office to get my medical concerns addressed quickly. He also cares about his patients emotional well being and has a terrific bed side manner. I don't think you'll find a better doctor in Columbus. And I'm not easy to please!!!!

D. Fitkin was my Dr. when I first relocated to Hilliard, Ohio. He relocated his office so I found another Dr. close to home. After several years of poor service at the new Dr's. office (waiting forever to see the Dr., the Dr. waiting until the end of the day to call in Prescriptions, not being able to get an appointment when ill and poor bedside manner. I tracked down Dr. Fitkin again.
