in North Rose, NY |
Dr. Fries is so knowledgeable and really listens to your concerns and patiently explains the medications and treatments. He has a very caring manner. I would diffidently recommend him to others seaching a Doctor.
in Rochester, NY |
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.
Dr. Fries is the most compassionate and empathetic doctor I have ever been to. He spent so much time explaining my condition to me. I could go on and on about how thankful I am for him. I would highly recommend Dr. Fries, especially if you are a POTS patient.
