If your looking for a OBGYN with a soft bedside manner this isn't your doctor, BUT on the other hand if your looking for an expert in this field Dr. Eugene Fontenot is the BEST. I've been going to him for many years and I know with 100% accuracy my examinations are complete and any problems that may come up will be detected with early detection.

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.
