Dr. Fitch saw my problem and knew what would happen next to me. He was correct and when I had to go to the E.R. he had already made me his doctor and I was accepted immediately. He may have saved my life. the jury is still out on that. I will forever be grateful for that.You are lucky to have him on your staff.

I am totally confident and comfortable with Doctor Fitch, he is a very thorough provider.
Patient | October 18, 2018

Dr Fitch was very knowledgeable and professional with an excellent attitude towards the patient.
Patient | October 15, 2018

I like Dr. Fitch a lot. He is professional, knowledgable, and relatable. However, he said he would call me that day with the results of my x-ray (of a tumor on my shoulder) and he never called me at all. That makes me hesitate to recommend him.
Patient | September 24, 2018

I wish all the physicians had the personality and professionalism that Dr. Robert W Fitch has.
Patient | September 21, 2018

Dr. Fitch is an outstanding physician!
Patient | September 17, 2018

Highly recommended due to knowledge and experience of subject matter, and explaining options and recommendations - all with patient input and confirmation of understanding. Making complex or unfamiliar concepts easy to grasp is key to partnered decisions on treatment and a path forward.
Patient | September 14, 2018

He really didn't know what the issue was and even after my ultrasound the only remedy he suggested was a steroid shot. Unfortunately, I had to email him via MyHealthAtVanderbilt and it took almost 2 weeks to get a response. I only received a response via MyHealth not even a phone call. Very disappointing. On top of that the treatment he suggested would have furthered my complications.
Patient | September 13, 2018

This provider is an exceptional provider!
Patient | September 6, 2018

Dr. Fitch is wonderful and would always want to see him if I had a continued issue when in Nashville.

Patient | August 27, 2018

Dr. Fitch is an exceptional provider and has taken care of almost all of our children involved in athletics - we could not be happier with his care!
Patient | August 20, 2018

Dr. Fitch was so patient and in-depth with his explanation of my injury. I have seen two other doctors for this problem and no one has explained it with the clarity and emotional support he did. He gave me options for how to proceed and provided multiple avenues. I appreciated working with this care provider and would recommend him going forward to others.
Patient | July 30, 2018

Best medical team I've ever had (I've had a lot concerning this injury).

Patient | June 19, 2018

I felt like a lost cause during this visit as it seemed there was nothing else this provider could do for me. I was referred to a foot specialist and an MRI was ordered so maybe that will lead to a resolution.

Patient | February 26, 2018

Dr. Fitch is very efficient, yet he does not give the impression that he does not care. He just seems to be an excellent diagnostician who knows exactly where and how to probe. He pulled my X-rays from 10 months ago, showed me the comparison to the the X-ray from the ED visit the day before, and explained how and where to see the fractures and healing of the old fracture
Patient | February 26, 2018

Dr. Fitch came to me highly recommended, and like so shall I pass him along to others. Couldn't have asked anything more from him and his care.
Patient | February 24, 2018

This was not my first visit with Dr. Fitch. He is knowledgeable of my knee problem. Explained my X ray of my knee and my options in treating. Always kind and considerate.
Patient | February 12, 2018

Dr. Fitch was attentive and explained what my options were for treatment. I was given every opportunity to ask questions and discuss my treatment options. He also has responded via messaging through MyHealthatVanderbilt following the radiologist report from my x-rays. I am very pleased with his service and care.
Patient | February 7, 2018

Dr Fitch explained my condition clearly and what my options are going forward. I appreciate him being open and getting me to understand that eventually I will need surgery to correct the issue.

I APPRECIATE Dr. Fitch and the time he took to give me all the options available to me for the best care for my particular problems. He showed real concern for me and the pain I have and when to great lengths to discuss all of my options. He listened to me and did not disregard me as a lost cause.
