This is Wilson Curlee. Dr. Fritz repaired a colovesical fistula for me, which involved removing a section of my colon and sewing closed a hole in my bladder. This was done on Feb. 13, noninvasively, using laparoscopy, and I went home on Feb. 15. Recovery was very easy, due to the excellent pain management procedures used by Dr. Fritz and the hospital staff. Her surgical team was excellent, and I had no after effects at all from the anesthesia or the catheter placement. I was amazed at how well I felt considering what was done inside me.
Dr. Fritz was recommended to me by my referring physician, by the doc who performed the screening colonoscopy, and by multiple hospital staff , who when they found out Dr. Fritz was doing my surgery, spontaneously said "Oh, she's good! You are going to love her!"
She is very good. I trust her, and highly recommend her.

Dr. Fritz is one of the kindest, best doctors I've ever seen! She came in, sat close to me, held eye contact and carefully explained what was going on and her plan to take care of me in an understandable way. I don't want to need more surgeries, but if that need arises, I would definitely choose her again. I highly recommend Dr. Fritz!!

Dr Katie Fritz was amazing. I came to get for a second opinion. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and I wasn’t comfortable with original treatment plan from first doctor. I definitely felt more comfortable with her treatment plan and just her overall. Would recommend Katie to any friends/family. No ragrets! Not one single letter!

Five excellent stars for my experience with Dr.Fritz and her team!! Arriving with newly diagnosed breast cancer, feeling vulnerable with lots of fear, Dr. Fritz immediately took charge and gave me all the facts and how the surgery was going to go. She even advocated that now she was going to get “that tumor” and I could relax. I felt like I had a warrior with me!!! I loved how she commandeered the surgery and stayed with me during uncomfortable needle sticks in my breast!
And we had wonderful conversations to detract me.... so I could calm down!!! She was very sensitive to the type of anesthesia used so I wouldn’t be sick.
I know this is subjective, but when I tell people who my surgeon was- many say- “you got the best of the best”. I hope I do not need surgery again, but she is my choice. I really enjoyed the pink boxing glove pin she gave me to wear to help me fight!

Dr Katie Fritz gave me excellent care. She rescued me when I had problems after my surgery and did another surgery and kept my organs going. She was very concerned and kept a close watch on me.

Great experience! She explained everything in detail so that I understood it, she made sure to answer all of my questions and never once acted annoyed or like any of my questions or concerns were wasting her time. She got me in as quickly as the scheduling would allow. She called my husband immediately after the surgery to let him know how it went and all of the details so he wasn't stressing.
