    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

    Dr. Fontaine is a great surgeon! He and his staff (especially Joe Garrett), provide outstanding care to their patients. I am so fortunate that I had Dr. Fontaine as my surgeon and the Moffitt team for my post-operative care.
