Dr Fritz is one of the most personable and informed doctors I have ever met, he will lay it out as to what a patient needs to know or do and does not beat around the bush about it, but is still very tactful in his delivery. This man has the heart and sole of what a doctor should be and is there to make you better allowing you the opportunities to make good decisions for a fulfilling long life.

I really enjoy my visits with Dr Fritz. He is very knowledgeable and I fully trust him. I am very comfortable seeing Dr Fritz. I know that I could have my office visits transfered to Sandpoint, but I will not do that. I love his bedside manners very easy to talk to and Dr Fritz answers all my questions.

I had a great deal of anxiety upon discovering I had developed an irregular heartbeat. The office responded with a promptly scheduled initial appointment. Dr. Fritz took the time to clearly explain my condition and answer my questions, which significantly relieved my anxiety. The further recommended procedures were efficiently scheduled with minimal hassle with paperwork or medical procedural confusion.
