My father recently saw her (which lead to me seeing her when my doctor was out). She heard a heart murmur and ordered testing to investigate. Thankfully she did because he eventually will need a valve replaced. He is now being carefully monitored by a heart doctor because of her thoroughness!

Been seeing Dr. Fontenot for several years now and I've always had a very pleasant experience. Some of the reviews below seem to act like she doesn't care about health but I never got that impression from her. In fact, if anything, she won't let you get away with miss tests or unhealthy habits. She's not necessarily the greatest doctor in the history of the world (I've had to go back to her a couple times for the same thing) but I'm happy with her as my provider.

Dr. Fontenot was very informative and professional. I had virtually no wait period and was treated courteously by the whole staff. I’m a happy new patient.

She is useless. She didn't listen to my problem. Made me lift one leg while laying down and made a diagnosis that completely disagreed with the MRI that I had on file that she didn't even take a look at to see what my problem was. It is like she is in her own little rude world and doesn't listen to the patient at all. Her license should be revoked.

Dr. Fontenot is the worst doctor I've ever encountered. I told her that I was depressed and had a severe cough for the past 3 weeks. She very nonchalant about the ENTIRE ordeal like my health meant nothing to her. She never addressed the depression and prescribed meds for the cough without explanation and sent me on my way. She will over-talk you and only answer questions of her choice. I'd rather kill over before ever returning to her. Save your money and find a doctor who actually cares.
