Where do I start, the initial interaction with Allison, Dr. Fitzgerald and PA. K Wright was simply perfect. I knew immediately that I was with the right team and was confident in moving forward with my orthopedic concerns. I have continued to receive first class care from them throughout and couldn't be happier with UH and this phenomenal ortho group.

He was helpful but did not go out of his way To make me feel comfortable. He is lacking in "bedside" manner. Not particularly personal. Just to the point. Nothing more. Does't seem to relate to patient, could show more interest with patient

I saw Dr. Fitzgerald for a preop visit for a total knee replacement. Dr. Fitzgerald did my first totally replacement in April. I really appreciate not only his technical expertise, but also his care for his patients. Dr. Fitzgerald's office staff is amazing. They guide you through everything from your very first appointment to after surgery is over.The one negative the exceedingly long wait in a crowded waiting room to be seen. While everyone was wearing a mask, during this time of Covid precautions, especially many of the patients recovering from surgery, were about to have surgery, the length of the wait was excessive. Once I got called back and was put in a room, I was seen quickly by Dr. Fitzgerald.

At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
