Patient | July 26, 2016

We decoded to try a conservative approach to one source of pain, and Dr. Fitch repeated that if that wasn't working, I could call him and he'd see me immediately. The second source of pain, hip bursitis, responded well to the steroid injection, and I'm doing physical therapy to prevent recurrence. Dr. Fitch is terrific--he is so kind and so clearly committed to help each patient optimize joint function.
Patient | July 18, 2016

Good bedside manner, thoughtful, professional. First time to see him for a follow up appt as previous doc had left. Confident he will help me get sorted out

Patient | June 28, 2016

Dr. Fitch is truly one of the greatest doctors to ever treat me in my 47 years of life. His bedside manner is exemplary. His knowledge and expertise is par excellence. He listens, spends time with you, answers your questions respectfully and thoroughly. He is extremely proactive in developing a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle. I am a fitness instructor. I need to keep moving. Dr. Fitch is keenly tuned into my livelihood and committed to keeping me in the game. I feel like he treats me no differently than Vanderbilt's athletes in his care. He is a sterling example of what a doctor should be, and how to treat patients like people. I trust my body (and livelihood) to Dr. Fitch, and I know I am in the very best hands. Also of note, I am friends with several nurses who work and have worked with Vanderbilt. All who have worked with Dr. Fitch report that the person his patients see is the person he is with his staff. They say they all love working with Dr. Fitch because he treats his staff so well. That speaks volumes. Dr. Fitch is an invaluable asset to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Patient | June 24, 2016

He was very polite, personable, and professional!
Patient | June 21, 2016

Getting passed over to another physician, no one seems to be able to follow up.

scenarios, which Dr. Fitch answered completely. When I left the office, I felt like all my questions were answered. I would definitely recommend Dr. Fitch to anyone needing Ortho care.
Patient | June 17, 2016

I drive 3 hours to see Dr. Fitch because he has shown genuine concern for helping me get my health back to the best possible degree.
Patient | June 1, 2016

Dr. Fitch is great! Very caring. I would highly recommend him!
Patient | June 1, 2016

As stated previously, I really like Dr. Fitch and think he is an excellent doctor. I've only had two office visits with him, and after the first one, I couldn't stop raving about how wonderful he was to family and friends. I am hoping that my second visit was just an off-day for his office. He apologized for running so behind schedule, which I did appreciate (although it didn't make the situation any less frustrating!)

Patient | March 15, 2016

I feel like most of these questions were addressed in the first to pages of this survey. If he wasn't very good at his job I wouldn't be seeing him. I know I'm going to get quality care when I go in there along with a professional, personable visit. Th
