Dr. Brian Fitzsimmons's Ratings
This was my first time seeing Dr. Fitzsimmons and I was pleasantly surprised at his level of professionalism and expertise. I would highly recommend him to anyone and will be sure to return next time I need to see a gynaecologist.
I LOVED Dr. Fitzsimmons he was extremely helpful, gentle, kind, quick and efficient. He is extremely informative and supportive. I would recommend him to any young girl that would be nervous or have many questions. He is lovely and is kind enough to distract you during any procedure and gets you in and out rather quickly. Simply wonderful.
I found him unprofessional, nothing more to it than that. Other staff was great but he was arrogant and after reading these comments he doesn't have a right to be. I waited 6 months for Dr Selke, only to have my appointment rearranged and not be told it wasn't going to be her. He wasn't very accommodating to the fact I was disappointed to see him instead.
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
