Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

The visit was for a six-month checkup. I had another appointment scheduled for an hour and a half later. I knew Dr. Fontenot was usually running behind schedule but figured that would be enough time. After waiting an hour, I was finally brought back. At that point I was told it would be over a half hour before he could get to me. I had to leave without seeing Dr. Fontenot. The staff rescheduled me for the next day. That appointment was about 30 minutes late but I did get to see Dr. Fontenot. My time spent with him was about 10 minutes. I enjoy using Dr. Fontenot, but this "come in and wait" is very annoying.
