Dr.Fretzin is by far,one of the best doctors in the Northshore. I found a doctor that listens & spends the time necessary to help you during your appointment He never rushes u out the door. Dr. Fretzin’s mild manner is refreshing & he is an Extremely intelligent man. I happily refer all my friends & family to this wonderful doctor.

I had one negative experience in this office and I ask the friendly staff to see another doctor with a rash on my behind which I had treated for a while with several ointments but no success so I had to see a doctor. I brought the ointment along and I was told to keep using it but I did for a long period already and tried further, no success. My Medicare paid but what can I do but withhold my co payment as I wasn't happy for a 2nd time with the 'wandering' doctors. Now it is in collection, $62.

Dr. Fratzin is great!! He?s very experience. I like his approach ? short, fast, and quick to the point. Find him to be very personable, confident, and highly effective. He help resolved an incorrect treatment from another doctor. His treatment yielded quick result. His medical staffs are very professional, comforting, and helpful. Front desk was just as friendly. I felt lucky to be his patient and my whole family will be on his book now.
