Patient Reviews (1)
in Orange County, Ca |
Dr. Fontana and his staff have been very thorough in identifying my real heart issues in order to avoid an extremely invasive open heart surgery if possible. If they find that I need surgery, I'm sure, based on our conversations he will find the least invasive way of obtaining the best long term results.
