Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Arrived an hour and 45 minutes ago for my 9:00 appointment. Actually, got here 20 minutes before the exam for the first visit paperwork. Sat in the lobby for an hour now in the exam room with the only information about the exam. The Dr will be in “when he can”? This isn’t my normal clinic, but they scheduled my appointment and I had a reasonable expectation that I would be seen in a timely matter based on my arrival? Guess that’s not going to happen.

Dr. Fontinella has been wonderful as a doctor for my husband. He really likes him and I do, too. He is thorough, knowledgeable and really takes his time with us. He is willing to take our feelings and interests into consideration. My husband has Alzheimer’s, so we really appreciate the support and interest he gives. I would recommend him.

Knowledgeable, but always rushed and curt. VERY rude and arrogant to the nurses. I just have a mistrust for people who act differently to different groups. I've already switched, and am far happier.
