The absolute worst doctor in my LIFE!!! He told me he couldn't take me as a patient anymore because I was "very very high risk" but refused to basically tell me why or type up a letter stating that I'm high risk. Along with the staff who is incompetent, it's September and she wrote my ultrasound July than wrote my appt was at 2:30 but it was at 1:30 for the ultrasound. STAY AWAY FROM THEM!!! Rude and no bedside manners whatsoever.

I have used Dr. E. Fontenot since I was 16. His cut and dry bedside manor is to my benefit. It makes me not worry about issues that I am having. He always listens and gives his best peace of mind, expert advice per unique situation. I always get a call back the same day by him or his nurses.

I went to Dr. Fontenot when I was pregnant with my first child, which was a scary thing. He made me feel silly for some of the questions I asked and didn't offer any information unless I asked about it so I felt there were a lot of things I was in the dark about.
