    In short, it was almost like never seeing a doctor. Received absolutely zero resolution on what I was diagnosed with, and never got a follow up call, from my last appointment....where I got no answers from. DOC is a complete joke. Doctors sit there, collect a bunch of money, and care nothing whatsoever about patients.

    After a bad motorcycle accident. Late 2013 i was busted up pretty bad. Pelvic bones broken. Dr fontes can come across as ego strong. But what super star doesn't have a bit of an ego. Bottom line is he is a very talented skillfully capable of being a star in his field. I'm greatfull that he was my surgeon. You won't find better.

    Dr Fontes is fabulous! I love my new hip and the mobility I have regained. I was in such pain, I could barely walk before my hip relplacemnt. After my surgery, I was up and walking the same day. Recovery was speedy, and post-op discomfort minimal.

    My recent experience during a consult with Dr. Fontes leads me to believe that his hippocratic goal is secondary to his desire for dollars. Dr. Fontes attitude with me as a patient was absolutely deplorable. He displayed a 'superior' attitude and little concern over my actual conditions. He refused to provide input on any condition other than that which he was required to do in spite of having been provided specifics as to the reason for consult. At best, his staff is inadequately trained.
