PLEASE READ THIS PAGE FULLY. Preparation for your visit is essential in helping us to see you and all patients in a timely manner. Please assist us by completing these tasks before you arrive.

1) Contact your insurance carrier and ask them to assign Dr. JOHN A. FRITZ as your Primary Care Physician. If you need a Provider ID Number please contact our office at 201-239-9200.

2) In addition to contacting your insurance company, please bring the following with you to your appointment:

  • Your insurance card
  • A valid, government-issued photo-id card.
  • Any prescription medications you are currently taking.
  • A copy of your medical records from your previous Primary Care Physician.
  • Please understand your insurance policy and what it covers. For example, if you are coming in for a general physical please verify that your policy covers this services. Many plans no longer cover the "annual check-up."
