We had a frank discussion about what to do about my knees. I decided to not have knee replacements because if I did, I would no longer be able to ride my bike the 30 to 50 miles 3 or more times a week to keep my weight in check, blood pressure in control, and type 2 diabetes in check without more meds.

Dr Fritz is by far the very most professional and understanding Dr. in the business. I have had the most traumatic physical, emotional, mental issues that are affecting my physical and mental well being. He makes it easy to confide in him and he is very understanding and puts his patient as a priority. I never thought I would be able to trust a Doctor again and it was easy for me to tell him my exact trauma. I thought I would neverlook forward to a dr’s visit again but he shares his profound knowledge and I am grateful I found him. Thank you Dr. Fritz for caring and taking the time needed for your patients as you do. Grateful, Susan.

It took 9 yrs to find a doctor that would help me, listen to me and take the time to explain everything to me and that is Dr Fritz. I miss him and wish he took my insurance. The best doctor I have ever had and due to a lot of ailments I have had over 40.

He seemed like a good doctor, Than he up and resigned leaving me and many other patients in the lurch, the other doctors at the practice are all female which is fine, but they do not prescribe the way Dr Fritz did ,in other words if he has prescribed pain medications like percocet the other will not do so,I need all my currant medications changed ,which is a big hassle.

Within 5 minutes of meeting with Dr.Fritz he had all ready known what the rash on my back was. He is very efficient and professional. He's comfortable and always makes the time to make sure that I'm okay before I leave. Never has a problem answering any questions that I ask. The best doctor I've ever had!
