Dr. Fontes was recommended to me by a physical therapist. My first appointment went well. I found Dr. Fontes to be knowledgeable, caring and easy to talk to. I was given time to ask questions and discuss treatment options. I left feeling confident that I had chosen a top-notch physician.

Review for Dr. Fontes

I worked in the GI field for 17 years in Las Vegas and personally know most of the GI doctors. While there is no dispute his bedside manner could use improvement, Dr Wahid is the best GI doctor in Nevada. Very few can compare to his level of skill and he truly cars about his patients.

As always Dr Sanders was very thorough and clear as to what courses of action were appropriate for me.

His reputation proceeds him. He was everything I read about. Informative, highly educated, research oriented, good bedside manner, reassuring, confident and I feel very comfortable with him and his surgical skills.

My 91 year old Mother has been a patient of Dr. Ramirez for the last 18 months. Dr. Ramirez has cared for my Mom thru 3 falls and COViD. I recommend her to all seniors in need of a Dr. who truly cares and most importantly listens to her patients.
