Dr. Brian Fitzsimmons's Ratings
He used laproscopy to get an errant IUD (uterus perforation) out of my partner's abdominal cavity. Apparently it was enmeshed in fat next to the bowel. He told us there was a very remote chance he had nicked the bowel during the operation, and so he provided very clear instructions in case pain increased: go to emergency immediately, and phone him on his cell. He also gave us a 1-page letter describing the operation in doctor-speak to give to the emergency staff in case pain increased. I was very impressed by these actions, because I thought these were very prudent measures to avoid misdiagnosis and wasted time in case of complication. LUCKILY everything worked out fine, and my partner's bowel was not nicked. We were annoyed by the followup visits, seems like inadequate records were kept of the operation, but, heck, he got the job done, and it sounded like a tricky procedure, and I was VERY impressed by his care and attention around possible complications.
Dr. Fitzsimmons saw me through my first pregnancy and I am now back at the clinic with my second child. Brian is an excellent physician. He goes out of his way to ensure that I am receiving the best holistic care possible. I have always been impressed with his bedside manner, he can be direct and to the point, but is also sensitive, reassuring and quick with a kind word. I trust this doctor.
When I arrived I was under the impression that I would be seeing a female Dr.,I wasn't thrilled that her partner, Dr. Fitzsimmons was the only one there, so I either saw him, or waited another couple of months to see Dr. Selke. I chose to see the Dr. that day as planned. When he came into the examining room, he said "I get it, you ordered rootbeer and you got diet coke", I realized he did get it, so I gave him the benefit of the doubt, and he's awesome. He listens, he explains everything thoroughly and lets you in on the decision making process. I would highly recommend Dr. Fitzsimmons to anyone looking for an OBGYN.
The Staff was very warm, welcoming and comforting towards me. They were patient in giving me all the knowledge I needed and asked for. They went that extra step to help me in a certain way that I'll never forget. I was nervous to meet Dr. Fitzsimmons, as I had read prior reviews on this site. Please ladies if you feel nervous, don't. Brian is the most kind, gentle and supportive Dr I have ever encountered. I will never forget him or his staff, especially what he did for me. Thank you Brian Fitzsimmons, <3
I credit Dr. Fitzsimmons with saving my baby's life. It was a tricky delivery and he pulled off a lightening-fast emergency c-section... plus the scar is virtually invisible! He was very personable when luxury allowed for it, and to-the-point when the chips were down. I couldn't have asked for better.
He was such an awesome doctor! So kind and helpful! Made sure to address all my issues and made me feel at ease. I ended up with an emergency c-section and if it wasnt for him I probably would have passed out! Love him!
I love this Doctor! He is so caring & thoughtful and will see him any opportunity I can get. He makes me feel important. He tells you like it is which I appreicate. Hail to Dr. Fitzsimmons! I just adore you! Thanks for your followup and making me feel that I am worth it. Although I am 40 pounds over weight he never makes me feel bad for it...He works with you and does not judge you.
So, this doctor was okay. He approved a tubal for me, when no doctors would because of my age (23) after making sure that I understand the risks/procedure. But when he was doing the exam he seemed nervous and more shy than me, which I thought was pretty unprofessional for a OBGYN. This doctor is just okay, but I'd choose Petra his partner if you can.
