Dr. Fritz and his nurses provided one of my best experiences at a doctor's office yet! I really liked Dr. Fritz's sense of humor. He made me feel like I was visiting family when I was really nervous because I'm afraid of needles. He's made a big difference in how I feel during the spring and summer when I'm outdoors. You rock Dr. Fritz!

I began seeing Dr. Fritz in March of 2016. I had a severe ear nose throat infection that would not clear up. Dr. Fritz examined me, did some testing, and we had lots of conversation. He was able to determine that I had vasomotor rhinitis and asthma. With medications and follow up visits Dr. Fritz was able to help me get everything under control. Because I’m managing my symptoms well, I haven’t had to see him in about 2 years, for that I am truly grateful, but I do miss everyone. Dr. Fritz has a wonder chair side manner, he takes his time with each patient and he has a kind and caring staff. I highly recommend Dr. Fritz.

I had a good experience from the moment I talked to the nice and friendly office receptionist, who had the paperwork I needed to fill out a day before my appointment. The Registered Nurse was caring, knowlegeable and thorough, Dr. Fritz was very professional, friendly, approachable, cool and a great listener who took the time to answer all my questions and even ordered the labs I requested. Thank you for all for such a nice and stress free experience.

Dr. Fritz asked me if I slept on my earring wrong when I went in for an earache that was intermittent for about three weeks! When I told him who my last allergist was, and that she was moving due to I’ll health, he talked very disparaging of her. I felt he was very unprofessional about a fellow colleague and generally dismissive of me, as a patient. It was my first and last visit.

I'm sending everyone I know to Dr. Fritz. He and his staff are incredible! They helped my husband with his asthma. My son can now eat nuts safely without having anaphylaxis and my sneezing and stuffy nose is completely gone. He will always be my family's go to allergist!

I had to wait 6 weeks to get in but it was worth it. Dr. Fritz's staff were very friendly. Dr. Fritz made my hives go away after I had been to the ER 10 times with no improvement
