    Dr. Fonseca has been a blessing to our family by providing rapid testing and facilitating our journey through the treatment of my husband's liver cancer. Not only thorough, fast and professional, this man is kind, generous with his time and empathetic to the worry and concerns of cancer patients and their families. He also responds quickly to any questions. God bless this man. My family and I highly recommend this doctor.
