South River Primary Care L.L.C.
3168 Braverton St., Ste. 330, Edgewater

  • I am a forty two year old male that has spent his fair share of time in the company of doctors, never very happy about it. Since day 1 Dr Fry has made me feel perfectly comfortable. More importantly he makes me feel as if he genuinely cares about my well being and happiness. Not to insinuate that most doctors don't care about their patients, but to most it is business and it is all about getting you out the door and seeing the next patient. Dr Fry takes time to listen, to explain what he is thinking clearly and in a manner that Joe lunchbox can understand. I don't care if I ever see another Doctor for the rest of my life. I have been and will continue to tell everyone who will listen about Dr Fry, I sincerely hope that you folks will recognize what he does. He deserves it.
