What People Say About Dr. Gustavo Fonseca, MD
Reply
I’ve been known to fire Doctors in the past for not receiving the care I felt I deserve or not valuing my time as if it was their own to waste, but mostly because I am not a billing plan for their retirement. Dr. Fonseca is one of the few Doctors I can say that he truly CARES takes the time to explain any concerns you may have but most importantly he LISTENS! His staff is equally professional, they are the best they are truly a reflection of Doctor Fonseca. Thanks for the second lease on life!!
