What People Say About Dr. Nathan Fountain, MD
Reply
During the last week of September,2017,into the beginning of the first week of October,2017,my daughter,Beryl Bellis had an 8 day sleep study at UVA's Neurology Epilepsy unit. During that entire 8 day stay,Dr. Fountain,my daughter's neurologist,NEVER came in to check on her.She developed a rsh from being put on an extra Vimpat at night. He said that was unlikely that Vimpat would do that. I,her dad,took her off the extra Vimpat. Rash Gone!! Dr. wrong!! Pass on the compassionate Dr. Fountain !!!
