Dr. Fritz is excellent. He has helped me through gallbladder surgery and esophageal cancer surgery. I can't say enough good things about him and his team. They are good people who really care about and for their patients.

Dr. Fritz surgically removed my thymus gland in May by doing the VATS thymectomy method. He was so knowledgable about my condition which is rare condition called Myasthenia Gravis. He has a great bedside manner and made me feel like I was going to be okay. My surgery went smoothly and my recovery was exactly how he explained it would be. His staff (AKA Anne) was amazing too! I would recommend Dr. Fritz to every friend and family member I know!

Dr. Fritz was a great fit for me and my husband. We felt very comfortable asking questions and all were answered to our satisfaction. He has a wonderful demeanor. His office staff was great. Surgery went as expected and I'm healing well.
