He has been my heart Dr for years. He has the same staff. They are all quite knowledgeable in their fields. They take the scary out of going for some ncessary testing that is done in his office. I can't say enough good about Dr Fonte and his staff.

A previous reviewer described Dr. Fonte as the "most unprofessional doctor I have ever had the displeasure of encountering." He or she left out arrogant. Today, when I expressed concern over a finding on my EKG, Dr. Fonte, condescendingly quipped "Are you a cardiologist?" Nope, but I will be looking for another one after today's encounter.

My husband has gone to Dr Fonte for years. Dr Fonte implanted 11 stents in several different surgeries. The last one was in 2009. He is a straight shooter and very honest. He recently did an angiogram on my husband & found a few more blockages, including one in the widow maker. Dr Fonte referred my husband to the heart surgeon for bypass surgery (he had 5 bypasses). We feel Dr Fonte has saved my husband’s life time and again!

I was seen by Dr. Fonte once and did feel confident in his care for me. The staff on the other hand.....Gayle Sandler (office manager) was probably one of the worst people in a professional setting I have ever dealt with, her attitude belongs in a Zoo. I have never had an office manager tell me without knowing or being present at time of incident, call me a liar and then proceed to hang up on me. I am horrified, that Las Vegas has this type of Physician employing such trash!!

Without a doubt, the best physician we have ever had. Would not be alive today had it not been for his expertise and emergency surgery over the weekend. Doctors of this quality are few and far between and we are fortunate to have found this doctor more than ten years ago.
