Dr. Fritz and his staff are all excellent and very competent. I went for my colonoscopy and it was so easy! I was very nervous and they all were extremely receptive to my needs and concerns. I was very impressed, and believe me, I did not want to have this procedure!! I highly recommend Dr....more

My experience with Dr. Fritz. Generally my opinion of the medical field is not very positive. My wish is that every doctor be a Dr. Fritz clone. Dr. Fritz is an amazing example of what a professional physician should be. I do trust this man with my life and I have. Thank you so very much Dr. Fritz...more
