Very happy with the care received by Dr. Fontana and staff. He is very straightforward, taking the time to thoroughly explain the nature of my problem and his proposed treatment plan. I received a same day appointment and was in and out in about 90 minutes, which included initial visit with nurse, x-rays and evaluation by Dr. Fontana.

Excellent! Understanding! Listens! Genuine! Will follow up on all possibilities to find the best answer and solve the problem to help the patient.
Stockton, CA |
Very rude! You wait 2 hours to see him, and he wants to spend 2 minutes with you. Uncaring and rude. Does not take the time to listen to the patient.
in Mobile, AL |
He has taken care of me for the past 30 years, if he was not good I would have left a long time ago. Doctors are busy people and has only a certain amount of time to each visit, Dr Fontana takes longer when needed. He makes sure you know what you are up against.
Mobile, AL |
Dr. Fontana is extremely rude and condescending. At my second visit he made me wait almost 4 hours in the waiting area in the back, and took every patient that arrived after me in before me. I followed his instructions he gave me for my broken leg exactly, and when I went back for my follow up he blamed me for my slow progress and insisted he had never given me the instructions that he had at the previous appt. I had 2 family members with me at my appointments and we all heard the same thing.
