Not only do I see Dr. Fontanet , we took my 92 year old mother to see him too. She loves him and so does our whole family. My heart issue is rather rare and Dr. Fontanet is well educated and I trust him with my life. He has a wonderful bedside manner, you can tell that he actually cares. If you have other issues with your health he will steer you in the right direction. He exhibits patience and understanding with our mother. He is the real deal.
