Been a patient multiple times

I've been a patient multiple times, going back to when she was in Farmington Hills. I would have been to her more, but the staff at the previous location, and her current one are slow to respond. I believe her MA may have something to do with it since she went with her to her new location. I've called and never received a call back after leaving a message on her MA line. I think she's a great doctor, but needs a better MA.

Rip-off Specialist

I bent my finger sideways during a fall and put my own splint on it for 2 months to stabilize in hopes that it healed. When it didn't seem to improve I went to see a specialist (Dr. Fritz) For the 5 minutes I had with her I was charged $180 the first visit and $105 for each of the second two visits just for her time. Then I was charged $76 for the "application" of a finger splint which was simply taking it out of the box and sliding on my finger which I also had to pay $27 for the splint. Then I was charged $85 for her to cut a small piece of metal off a long strip and tape both ends to my finger to stabilize it. Then I was charged $5 for the materials afterwards. She wanted me to wear this for 6 weeks without removing it. Upon return 2 weeks later I had told her that i had removed it a couple of times during various activities but put it back on afterwards. She said I had to start all over again. But then she cut a new piece of metal and threw out the old one (which there was nothing wrong with) just so she could charge me another $90. The applications of these splints were billed to insurance as surgery on all 3 occasions even though no actual surgery took place. Diagnosis of the damage to my finger was determined with an x-ray which does not tell you the extent of tendon/ligament damage yet she was comfortable with saying that I would only need to stabilize it and do rehab. Waited for over an hour on one of my appointments. It would be nice to charge her $105 for every 5 minutes of my time. She doesn't give a lot of detail as to why she is doing anything. You have to ask many questions for her to tell you the reasons behind her decisions. After it was all said and done I was charged $534.91 for 3 visits where all she did was do what I had done originally months prior. Don't waste your time with her go somewhere else where they may actually put some effort into diagnosing the extent of the damage. Her and her staff of large 10+ people will nickle and dime you because they can. Its all about making that money and seeing as many customers as possible.
