  • Dec 22, 2023

    Dr. Fritz went a long way toward calming my fears by explaining options and providing take-home information.

    Dr Fritz has a wonderful demeanor.

    I like Dr. Fritz very much. She is never impatient or in a hurry to get to another patient. She listens and explains on my level of understanding.
