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.

Besides general Obstetrics and Gynecology, I am also the Medical Director of Lifestyle Medicine :

Lifestyle Medicine involves the therapeutic use of lifestyle, such as a predominately whole food, plant-based diet, exercise, stress management, tobacco and alcohol cessation, and other non-drug modalities, to prevent, treat, and, more importantly, reverse the lifestyle-related, chronic disease that's all too prevalent.
