Actually this rating should be zero. I spent over 75 minutes in the exam room without the doctor showing before I walked out. Like to get an explanation for this poor care

Kept me in a Foley catheter for nine months. No digital. No cancer check. Recommended a lifetime catheter as the only solution to my enlarged prostate. Went elsewhere to get a successful Rezume procedure. This doctor should not be practicing urology!

My experience with Doctor Fountain was excellent. His quick wit and confidence put me at ease immediately. After suffering with stone for over 7 months with another Doc only doing ultrasounds which do not indicate the size of the stone, and that DOC telling me it had dissolved, I was apprehensive and concerned about my health...and cautious about another Doctor. Dr Fountain's expertise and skill and ability to diagnose and make recommendation for solution, is forever appreciated.

We are snowbirds and needed to see a Urologist ASAP due to my husband having a very painful kidney stone. We went to the ER of Waterman and Dr. Fountain was on call. He did the procedure to remove the stone and took the time both before and after to come out into the waiting room and explain what he was going to do and what he found afterwards. Very pleasant to deal with.

My husband saw Dr Fountain today and found him to be rude, not very nice. Not sure just what his problem is, but there are other doctors in Central Florida.

I went to the ER (on biker's weekend, at night... now there's an experience!) with searing pain in my left back and side. At 10pm the news was, "You're expecting!" Expecting a kidney stone, that is. After waiting for nearly 3 months for it to appear, severe pain and "colorful" urine made the decision for me. Within 4 days Dr. Fountain and his fantastic staff had me in for surgery and it went FANTASTIC. He is attentive, caring, open to alternative solutions, thorough. He's great!

With urologic bleeding, I came to Dr. Fountain's office at his personal request only to find that he was not there. This has happened twice. He has been rude and unprofessional to both me and my wife.
