My family and I have been going to Dr. Hontas for almost 30 years and we love him! He has done surgery on both my knees and my husband's shoulder, along with treating a number of other breaks that my children and I have experienced over the years. He is always in a good mood and joking with us all the time. I have never seen him in a bad mood!

Dr. Mark is such a caring & friendly Doctor. I recommend him to anyone needing a knowledgeable and experienced orthopedist. The staff at his office is very helpful and caring also.
in Franklinton, LA |
Had virtually NO wait time to see Dr. Mark Hontas. He reviewed my MRI and other reports, asked his nurse to do an X-Ray of my hips, I was led back to the room in which I started out. The doctor IMMEDIATELY came in to review my results. I was SO PLEASED to hear that my 6 months of pain could be relieved by only a couple of Cortisone shots. Waiting room spacious, nice magazines (doctor even GAVE me one that I was interested in!) Certainly would recommend this physician to anyone!
