    I had given up when I came to Mr Fitzgerald. He gave me hope. He made me feel like I was his only patient. The level of care provided has been outstanding and the treatments put in place have given me promising progress for the first time.

    Mr Fitzgerald was very kind, caring, understanding and compassionate throughout my son’s treatment. He diagnosed the problem with his leg and within a week my son was on the right course to get better. Mr Fitzgerald always listened and we felt he really genuinely cared about the best treatment for my son for the long term.

    I have seen Dr Fitzgerad a few times now and have had a procedure carried out by him as well. He explained the procedure I have already had and explained the side effects of the immediate procedure and the benefits of having it carried out I am about to have the same procedure again carried out by Dr Fitzgerald. I would certainly recommend Dr Fitzgerald.
