I have been using Dr Fritz since I got my boxer when he was 11 weeks old in December he will be 6 years old. I must say Dr Fritz is a great vet very honest and he doesn't rip people off like other vets in ocean county. Dr Fritz and the staff are great with my boxer and also with me. After reading the reviews on this page I had to respond because in 6 years that I have known Dr Fritz not once has he done what people said he. I would recommend him to all my friends who have pets and actually all my friends who have dogs do use him. Your a great vet and person Dr Fritz don't let people like Sunny get to you.

In response to Sunny L., yours is a very mean-spirited review and if your objective was to hurt my feelings, you have succeeded. I don't remember the specific appointments you refer to or who you are, but I would never want to bring anyone to tears. If I did, I am very sorry - it was not my intention. I have always known about myself that I can be pretty blunt and direct at times. Some people can also be very sensitive when it comes to their animals. Apparently, you are someone with whom I felt comfortable enough to share what was happening in my life. Yes, I did lose my home AND business in Sandy. We had to relocate the business and are still living in a travel trailer. And I HAVE had many bad days since the storm, it's true. There's no doubt I've been traumatized. Many of my clients are in my same situation and we are ALL stressed, frustrated, and angry - it is hard not to be. My main goal, however, is to care for my patients and I realized a long time ago you can't please everybody. I hope your animals are well and you find a vet who can better relate to you and your wife. Dr. Fritz

This Dr has completly lost his mind since hurricane Sandy. I took my cat & dog here for many years. Dr Fritz was a great doctor and a nice man to talk to. I been in 3 times since the hurricane, all I have to say is WOW! My appointments were rushed because, the doctor didn't feel good. I heard all about how he isn't back in his house and blah, blah, blah! The entire appointment was about Dr Fritz and his issues and not about my pets. He did on the other hand, make my wife cry at the LAST appointment, which is why we don't go here anymore! Prices are good but not worth being treated like a piece of crap. Staff is very friendly & caring but I also witnessed the Dr treat the staff like dirt! I'm done with this guy and I hope this helps with any decisions to go here!

We adopted a kitten from the Shelter and because she was not in the best of health, coughing and sneezing, we needed to take her to a vet directly from the Shelter. Because it was local, we went to the Ocean County Vet Hospital, (the Park Avenue of Vets). They did an exam, gave me a script for human anti-biotics, no x-ray, no shots. Just an exam and a script. They cost me fortune. Then the SPCA, recommended we see Dr. Fritz. A little drive for us and our screaming kitties, but he is so worth it. I have read the other comments and I have to wonder how many other problems these people have, because its not MY Dr. Fritz. they are referring to. He is awesome. He calms my babies down before he examines them, he is so complete with his exams and he is truely a kind man. A true animal lover. You can see the sincereity in his eyes. I now have 4 (yes you heard me, 4) kitties and I will continue to take my babies there, and I will continue to recommend his office to anyone and everyone I speak to.

I was a client of Coastal Vet for about two and a half years, and of course, Dr. Fritz is an excellent doctor. It is obvious that he is an animal person, if his job title didn't tell you this. However, I do not feel he handles clients very well, unless he just flat out didn't like me.

I do not know him on a personal basis, so I cannot sit here and make assumptions or judgements, but I will tell you about the multiple times I had the "pleasure" of bringing my proverbial "children" to visit his practice.

Over the course of my services being rendered by Dr. Fritz, I had brought my animals in for simple colds, easily treated with anti-biotics. He treated the animal with more respect than myself, which would be considered normal if it wasn't done to the degree he stretched it to. He basically treated me like I had been abusing my animals for years, almost with disgust.

He does explain everything thoroughly for you, although he does so as if his social status were higher than yours. He is quite the lecturer (which can sometimes be informative, other times insulting/annoying), and his mood is absolutely reflected in the way he deals with his clients.

I do have to say that the woman at the reception desk with the slight southern accent is very sweet and helpful. The rest of the staff are very nice as well.

I stuck with him as long as I could handle ONLY because he is an EXCELLENT doctor...his attitude could be improved a bit.

Dr. Fritz is a wonderful Vet. We moved to Ocean County 3 years ago and have 5 pets. Dr. Fritz has exceeded our expectations and never lets us down. He takes great care of our pets and always takes the time to comfort our concerns. His prices are very reasonable. It's evident that he's a Vet for all the right reasons. We've had many Vets in North Jersey and have been to all the high-priced Specialty Hospitals in the State, and Dr. Fritz tops them all. The animals are his priority.

I've owned dogs and cats for many many years... Been to more vets than I can count... I've been using Dr. Fritz for over a year now and find him a welcome relief from the "factory vets" that have cropped up over the years. Dr. Fritz is also just about the ONLY vet in NJ (that I know of) that will make HOUSE CALLS ! My wife and I are a foster home for Small Paws Rescue (www.smallpawsrescue.org) and have anywhere from 1 to 3 foster Bichon's looking for "Forever Homes" stay with us every year.Often these dogs are traumatized when we get them. The combination of Dr. Fritz's house call capability and his caring, gentle way of dealing with dogs is an immense help to us and the dogs. I would recommend Dr. Fritz to anyone looking for the finest care for their pet.
