    I've been under the care of Mr Fitzgerald since 2004 and I wouldn't trust anyone else to be honest. I originally went to him for a second opinion and I left feeling like I'd be listened to, unlike my earlier consultant. He is personable, very clear in his explanations and is conservative in his recommendations. I wouldn't (and indeed haven't) hesitate to recommend him.
