    Patient Comments (4)
    Dr. Fortin was more than excellent. After visiting several doctors, we decided we trusted Fortin most for our daughter, and are very glad that we did. He was very informative and explained what was going to be done, I would recommend Dr. Fortin to anyone. We all felt comfortable going into surgery and during my recovery, knowing that she was in good hands.

    Wonderful Dr, referred by another physician (whose wife was his patient). The guy is a leader in his field, and fixed problems my first surgeon left me with...the only complaint is wait time, as the office (several other physicians there) seems to get backed up...but Dr Fortin spends as much time with you as you need answering questions and giving you information. If you make your appt for 1:00, right after lunch, you can get right in.

    Destroyed my foot and leg; left me with nerve damage and constant burning pain- will never be pain free. Sloppy surgeon and terrible with anesthesia. Should not be in practice.

    Waited 5 weeks for an appointment. I left work and picked up daughter from school to get there. Long story short. We were never seen. Had to reschedule and they gave us an appointment 5 weeks out.
