Specialties

Dr. Kevin E Fitzgerald has the following 2 specialties

  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

The most amazing doctor you will ever meet!

I first began seeing Dr. Fitzgerald for Fibromyalgia trigger point injections in the out patient surgery recovery area of St.Mary's Hospital in Grand Rapids.Our first meeting occurred more than 28 yrs ago, before the official pain clinic ever existed. I've been blessed with 5 chronic health conditions and Dr.Fitz has been there for me for every diagnosis and treatment plan.Of the numerous specialists I have seen in my lifetime, including those at Mayo, Cleveland Clinic, and Uof M, Dr. Fitzgerald gets an "A+" grade from me in listening skills and level of compassion. He truly desires to find your cause for pain and to develop a treatment plan that delivers results when other doctors have failed. Numerous doctors, unfortunately, will write off your issues as stress related or may blame your pre- existing conditions as the cause for something new rather than making refferals to the appropriate specialists or for diagnostic tests. This doctor is very humble, a rarity in his field, willing to admit when he does not have the answers, but will walk beside you with emotional support until the answers to health dilemas are found! You owe it to yourself and to your family to give this pain specialist a try before giving up hope. Yes, the waiting room time may be long, but the amount of time Dr.Fitzgerald will spend with you in the examination room will make it worth your while!

I have been going to Dr Fitzgerald for 17 years

Dr Fitzgerald is the best. His office staff is the greatest. It took 15 years for me to find a doctor who could/would give me a diagnoses. His NEW PHYSICAL THERAPY STAFF is great also, they are gentle and do all they can to ease your pain levels. This doctor deserves high recognition from the medical field.

CARING AND COMPASSIONATE

I have found Dr. Kevin to be a very caring and compassionate doctor. Sometimes there is a slightly long wait to see him but he gives you his undivided personal attention during his visit with you and never makes you feel rushed and listens to you. I would give him an A+ without hesitation.
