Dr. Fretzin grew up on the North side of Chicago. He received his bachelor of arts degree from Washington University in St. Louis with a major in philosophy. He completed medical school and an internship at the University of Chicago. He came to Indianapolis for his dermatology residency and board certification at Indiana University School of Medicine (1994-1997). During his dermatology residency he developed a specialty interest in the management of sexually transmitted diseases. Dr. Fretzin still staffs a county STD clinic one day a week.
