Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Fontanetta has performed 9 surgeries on me since 1996, all of them highly successful. Dr. Fontanetta is highly skilled and has the experience to know when not to do the surgery also. Don't let Dr. Fontanetta's quiet demeanor make you unsure of his skills; just the opposite, he knows his job...more

I saw Dr. Fontanetta once and will never see him again! He was cold, rude and did not want to hear what I had to say. What a total Jerk!!
