I saw Dr. Fontaine for my female Pab check-up. I've never been to her before. I had to call for my results and was told they only contact a patient if there's an issue. They told me the test were negative. A month later I went to a South Burlington Gyno and had another check up. I had endometrial cancer and was told by the doctor who did the complete hysterectomy (1 mo. later) that I'd had encomertial cancer for at least two years. I had not been to a doctor in a few year.You decide.
