Cumming, GA |
Dr. Fonger is not only experienced and knowledgeable, he's very personable, as well. He listens to your issues, and addresses them directly. I'm very happy with my results. I'm healing up very well. I would recommend friends and family to work with Dr. Fonger and staff at Vein Atlanta. From the moment you walk in, to my Patient Advocate and to the friendly and knowledgeable medical assistants, to Dr. Fonger, every moment with them was pleasant.
