Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Fritz "Dr. Fritz believes the art of practicing medicine transcends science. Dr. Fritz recognizes the integration of the physical,spiritual and social that compose her patients' lives and then, through the filter of experience, translates the available science so patients are empowered to take responsibility for their own medical decisions. Attention to patient individuality is key - individuality discovered by physicians who ask insightful questions and listen as patients tell their unique stories."

This "doctor" should be investigated. I don't know how in the world she has not had her license revoked. There is something very wrong in her mind. She must have magical powers to be able to tell people how they feel or don't feel because in the end SHE decides! She refuses to listen to patients, tells them they're not in pain...rolls her eyes when you try to explain how you feel...I could go on and on. Never going back and you shouldn't either!!!! Run!

If I could of given a half star I would. By far the worst doctor I've ever been to. Very dismissive and does not listen whatsoever to her patient. I repeatedly told her I was in pain. And she continuously told me that I was not. Will never ever go back to her even if she's left dr. on Earth.

Don't waste your time! I wasted years even tho she refused to even order X-rays bc she "doesn't need X-rays to see what she already knows"! (How Arrogant!) Of course she was WRONG bc I finally went to a REAL doc who ordered X-rays and mri's which revealed significant damage for which I am now receiving actual care...I put up with her rudeness and lack of ANY bedside manner until she made a HEROIN comment to my face while discussing meds! Unacceptable and unprofessional. Dont be bullied.

Dr. Fritz was very condescending and dismissive and criticized my choice of hospitals and prior treatment. Very abrupt and unkind. A very disappointing encounter.
in Cincinnati, OH |
she has her own agenda..more like an interview, no interest in my symptoms, would not let me give a complete answer, to her rapid, firing off of questions.. She touched my shoulder, with one finger, listened to my heart, said i had no autoimmune disease and diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, despite having other conditions that can cause pain as well. I got Gabapentin and told to do vigorous exercise, when i am in too much pain to even walk..
