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.
