Well informed doctor but. BUT. The scheduling staff was downright RUDE and non accommodating.
in Livonia, MI |
I was referred to Dr. Fritz as being "excellent" by my primary physician. I am concerned that after my first appointment, I have to go four weeks before another diagnostic test, without any kind of relief or healing support. My primary dr. said she (Dr. Fritz) would at least give me a better fitting splint than the one that I bought from Walgreen's and probably some physical therapy. Nope. Nothing. The advice she gave was actually less than what I've already been doing. I don't think she listene
in Northville, MI |
Amazing staff! Dr. Fritz was highly recommended by my primary care physician and I can see why! She took my concerns seriously and was very understanding when I expressed my concerns of the pain due to my age and my career. I never felt like I had to defend my case or plead with her.
in South Lyon, MI |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Fritz. She explained everything to me from my problem to treatment to therapy. She has a great bed side manner. I felt like she truly cared and was in the right profession. I had gotten two opinions before her and I'm glad I found Dr. Fritz!
in Commerce Twp. Mi |
Worked on my wives carpal tunnel (both hands) did a great job explaining the procedure and has a great bedside manner. The operations went great and my wife has total relief from pain and numbness. I had a shoulder problem and she examined me and was able to fix the problem without surgery and a simple shot.
in Howell, MI |
She is the most amazing surgeon...thorough, compassionate, professional, easy to talk to, and she saved my mom's life.
