    He is the best doctor and surgeon I have ever met and/or known. He is the kindest person and he has the best bedside manner any doctor I have ever seen. In fact Dr. Fry is like a brother to me.
    in Wheat Ridge, CO |
    It was easy to make an appointment. The staff was very kind and efficient. Dr.Fry explained my hand X-ray very well. The treatment he prescribed was helpful. I'm glad I chose Dr.Fry.
    in Westminster, CO |
    He was very down to earth, kind to my 17 year old son and explained everything thoroughly to him with easy words and diagrams. Such a kind doctor - a rarity among specialists today!
    in Evergreen, CO |
    Dr. Fry was kind, explained everything and did a wonderful job on my hand.
    in Golden, CO |
    A very professional staff and office environment. Dr. Fry is very personable, professional, and informative. He took all the time necessary to fully explain my options. This may sound like a minor issue, but it was very noticeable to me. I used both my formal and nick names in making the appointment. I was asked which one I preferred to be addressed by and that how it went throughout the visit. To me this is very indicative of a culture that values the relationship with the patient.
    in Denver, CO |
    Dr. Fry is very thorough and takes the time to answer questions. I never felt rushed. I trust his judgment and would highly recommend other patients to him.
