Jefferson Texas |
I would not go to Dr. Fuentes if my life defended on it. When I heard that he refused to see a patient for no reason, that was it for me.
in Lufkin, TX |
I am so happy that I found Dr Fuentes. He spent so much time explaining my treatment options and then providing me with a confidant surgical plan and followup. He spent a lot of time answering all my many questions. I had no problems after my knee surgery and can now move without pain for the first time in many, many years. I recommend Dr Fuentes to everyone I talk to.

Wish I could give less stars. This guy doesn't do anything according to his philosophy. He treats people as a pay check, doesn't care about the well being of his patients. Worst experience of our lives.
in Lufkin, TX |
Dr. Fuentes was very knowledgeable and was very specific regarding my injury. He was easy to talk to, and I came to trust him very quickly. He is very thorough and compassionate, he makes you feel welcomed.
