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.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fries for over four years and have always had a wonderful experience. Dr. Fries takes as much time for me as I need, answers any questions that I may have, and has responded promptly over the years if I need to reach him.

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.
