Part of a Study

Dr. Fitz was a truly insightful and talented Laser Surgeon as well as an innovator who was also excellent in business. I was part of the initial study for the TNS compound which later became SkinMedica's Flagship product and participated in two other laser studies. He will be missed.

Best Dermatologist EVER!!

I have never met a doctor who is both as kind and knowledgable as Dr. Fitz! He made me feel beautiful in my skin again, and got rid of my acne scars that I'd been dealing with forever with laser skin resurfacing. GO SEE HIM!

Five Stars

A patient of Dr. Fitzpatrick's when he had an office in Encinitas, I knew of his knowledge in laser treatments, so when the procedures my current dermatologist advocated were not success-ful, I felt assured that Dr. Fitzpatrickwould know and offer the best treatment.I'm currently healing from the Fraxel re:store Dual laser procedure and can see and feel a smoother facial skin.
