Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Everyone was pretty understanding and thoroughly explained the whole visit and the reason for every procedure. They laughed at my jokes too when I was scared of the needles, and that’s a huge plus for me!

All three of my boys see Dr. Fruge. He has always been very professional yet friendly when we visit. Even my younger children feel comfortable going to his office. It means a lot for the staff to take extra time to make them feel comfortable.

I often list Dr. Fruge as my primary care physician because he has taken such excellent care of me over the last thirteen years. He is kind, proffessional, thorough and thoughful and often catches things other doctors miss. I am fortunate to have him as my doctor.

I have been going to Dr Fruge since I was a child. I trust him implicitly. He has allowed me to function in life, otherwise I would be living in a bubble due to all my allergies!
