What People Say About Dr. Joanne Fruth, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Did not seem to do a thorough review of my medical history/lab work. Offered follow-up tests that should have been ordered as a part of my annual exam (was told "not covered", so why order later at subsequent visit? Would pay if not cover). Bone density, vitamin D, and thyroid functioning should all be a part of a women's annual wellness/preventive exam, regardless of age. Standard needs to be challenged and changed. That was my experience.

I have been a patient of Dr. Fruth's for over 3 years. I find her to be a great provider. She takes the time at each visit to really listen to what I have to say and is responsive to my concerns and questions. She is skilled in many areas and saves me time and money by treating conditions for which other primary care doctors have sent me to specialists. She treats the whole person, medical, mental and physical. She politely points out things I can do to help myself, such as losing weight.

I really like Dr. Fruth. She is very knowledgeable. Being a busy doctor, she always has time to answer all my question. She is always friendly and smiley, too, like she never gets tired :)

If I could give her zero stars, I would; one star is far too generous for my experience with her. She ignores what the patient says and refuses to listen.
