I was recommended to Dr. Fondal by my internal Med Dr. She gave me answers when no one else could. I’m sorry to see that all of you have had a bad experience. I’m glad that you’re putting your opinions because it helps. I did try to call the office today they answered the first time However the 3 other times I called it said” the Verizon customer is not available right now?? I didn’t understand that? Overall she has been Amazing

Very knowledgeable but arrogant and combative. Phones don't work most of the time. Staff changes constantly and never for the better. I think she needs to hire someone to organize the office and staff. Wait times are ridiculous. I'm never confident it's my information she's looking at because it will end completely different than what she said when I call in for la results.

Find another dr !!! The first visit ok the second visit was a disaster . I never met a doctor that is so aloof combative and down right arrogant . These diseases are serious conditions and if she dont care about her patients she should not be a doctor. I wish I would have read reviews about her before going . She didn't want to explain to me why she was putting me on meds , she don't know her patients , she spends her time staring at the computer, rather give u a print out instead of explaining

If they had A minus 5 stars that would be my choice.I think she is A good Doctor but scattered late for appointments .I got to A appointment to start A med and they said they had samples and they did not ,the doctor was more concerned about her vacation then Patients needs.After doing all the test and X rays 2 weeks went by no med no calls so I called 2 times since 8-1-16 and have not got A return call back .So my rating for this Doctor Is HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have systemic sclerosis, my blood work was off the charts high, I was recommended to see a rheumatologist, Went to see Dr. Fondal, I was told you don't have Lupus (I knew that before I went) , can't help you, follow up with your PCP within the year. She knows nothing about anything else. I went to Emory Rheumatology Clinic in Atlanta, getting the help I need. The doctors there could not believe she knew nothing about systemic sclerosis.
