Watch Dr. Daniel C. Fitzpatrick's interview on KVAL TV:
Dr. Fitzpatrick was professional, approachable, realistic about my options. His PA, Jason Saldana, was extremely informative and supportive in my follow-up visits. I never had to wait too long for my appointment, and everyone I dealt with was cordial. I would recommend Slocum and these two men unreservedly.
Always first rate with Dr. Fitzpatrick. I'm having a total hip replace in September, am so glad to have him doing the surgery. He did my ankle surgery a year ago when I broke that, and was wonderful to deal with. The staff is helpful, courteous, and professional, would not consider going anywhere else for this/these type of procedure.
I wanted to see a doctor who wasn't biased against running who could advise me as to wether resuming running after arthroscopic knee surgery would be detrimental or not. I chose Dr. Fitzpatrick because he is a runner as well as a knee specialist. I was very pleased with the info he gave me and I would definitely see him again if the need arises. Also, I would highly recommend him. I appreciate also, that I was able to get in to see him in a reasonable time frame as well as I did not have to wait an hour beyond my appointment time to see the doctor.
I experienced a great deal of pain in my hip. They took X-rays and gave me a local series of shots and advised therapy. It was a huge relief not to have hip surgery and my hip is doing fine.
My total hip replacement a year and a half ago was a wonderful and successful experience. I applaud the whole Slocum team and especially Dr. Fitzpatrick and P.A. Jason Salden. Slocum delivered for me!
