What People Say About Dr. Jacques-Pierre Fontaine, MD

I was diagnosed at a Florida east coast hospital with Stage 2 lung caner and advised I would require surgery once the diagnosis was confirmed. I waited 6 weeks for test results and was to wait 6 more weeks for one more test. I switched to Dr. Fontaine at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. He removed the cancerous lung lobe the next week and three days later I was out of the hospital. Dr. Fontaine was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and professional. I give him my highest recommendation.

Dr. Fontaine is very knowledgeable. He is truly an expert in his field and was able to explain my options very clearly. He inspires confidence and has excellent bedside manners. My robotic lung cancer surgery went very well. I was very impressed by Dr Fontaine and all the members of his team. Now I know why he is rated as #1 in Tampa Bay. A big thank you!

Dr. Fontaine is a life saver! He can explain the intricate technical aspects of a major operation while sensing and addressing the emotional needs of family and friends. I visited several other nationally-recognized surgeons and chose Dr. Fontaine because of his highly-regarded skill, excellent post-operative care, and the wonderful sense of ease that he cultivated. Exceeding his fantastic reputation, his bedside manner was warm, his post-op care thorough, and his technical skill impeccable.

My Husband Anton Zeman had surgery by Dr Fontaine for esophageal cancer almost two years ago at age 84. He is doing outstandingly well . After being treated with chemo and radiation his cancer had returned surgery was then recommended his surgery went very well. At this time he is still cancer free. We were blest to find this excellent surgeon. We are so grateful. Thank you Dr Fontaine
