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. Fritz and Marybeth Hogan, his nurse...and all the other nurses and staff.

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 for being who you are. By the way these comments were not solicited. You may reach me at any time for further information.
