My long time family doc was retiring and I thought there was NO one who could fill his shoes. He recommended Dr. Fontenot to me and at my first visit it was immediately apparent why he had! He is very thorough and is concerned about my welfare. I recommend him without reservation.... (just try not to tell too many people or go too often 'cuz then I wouldn't be able to get an appointment for myself!! ;-)
