Dr. Fries is not only extremely qualified, but he also has the ability to not only make a patient feel very relaxed, but also explains things completely and in terms that the patient can understand. You never feels as though he is in a hurry to get to the next patient but spends the time needed to not only explain, but also to listen and answer questions. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Fries as my Cardiologist.
