Dr. Fritz has done a total of four hand surgeries over the years for me and hands down she is truly the best and has helped me live a much better quality of life. I highly recommend using Dr. Fritz and and forever thankful for her exemplary skills! Thank you!
in Walled Lk, Mich |
I have seen Dr. Fritz for two different hand issues I am extremely pleased with her ability to understand the issue(s), explain them to me and provide the medical treatments to resolve my issue(s). She was very thorough and I really felt she listened to me and understood the issue(s). I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing the type of services she provides. Beverly Fantich

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

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.
