This practice will absolutely not see you without a referral from another doctor. They would not even give me an appointment when I explained that I was looking for second opinion on some lab work another doctor had ordered.

I am very happy with Dr. Fontenot. He is very caring and takes the time to explain what he is going to do during each visit.
in Rayne, LA |
He is so wonderful. He made me feel that I could ask him anything. He always makes sure to explain to me tha I can understand. He always makes me feel that no matter what he or his staff is there for me.
in Marksville |
If there was an option to give no stars that's what he would get. A couple of years ago I went to him about thyroid issues. He said there was signs I had a problem. But there was nothing he could do now and told me to go home and pray and exercise. Now I have full blown Hashimoto diease. He was rude and uncaring. I think the state I'm in now could have been prevented.
