I have never had even a hint of a bad experience with my primary care physician or my heart surgeon. I could not possibly find more skilled, capable professionals.

Dr Fitzgibbons and his entire staff have provided with FIRST CLASS professionalism, skill and respect. I am most impressed with them and everyone I have ever encountered at Hamot. I have 100% confidence that I am getting the best care I could possibly receive anywhere. I have highly recommended Dr. Fitzgibbon and Hamot at every opportunity.

when I called about a post operative issue, the staff was concerned and got me appt the following day in an appropriate time frame to see the doctor. very courteous on the phone. Also the doc wanted an additional sonogram done prior to the visit and with a few phone calls back and forth this was done in a very prompt and efficient manner and all appointments were on time.

The Dr. was pressed for time because he was needed in surgery. Because of this my time with him was cut short.

this was my 1st office visit as I was admitted to the hospital for a heart attack & was assigned this dr

March 01, 2017

Didn't get to see him.

February 02, 2017

This was the first time we met with this provider, so some of the questions did not apply. We were very impressed with the doctor and the hospital. The only thing that was not great was we were waiting for a call the following day after the visit there for a call about ascheduled appointment for a test that I need. We did not hear from anyone.
