Patient Comments (1)
in Burlington, VT |
Dr. Fries was arrogant and was very difficult about consulting with a sub-specialist that my regular neurologist had suggested. After the consult, Dr. Fries was about to perform a procedure on me that, because of another condition which was clearly noted in my chart, could have had serious negative effects on my health. He sent his resident to tell me about that near catastrophe. Later, he did show up to apologize.
