I WAS TERRIBLY DISSAPOINTED, MONETARILY ROBBED AND LEFT ILL. AFTER I PAID TO SEE THIS SPECIALIST WITH HIGH HOPES OF A CURE. HE TOLD ME I HAVE4 ACID REFLUXC AND TO BE ON MY WAY. PRESCRIBED ME THE LOWEST DOSE OF ANITIBOTICS THAT DIDNT DENT MY ILLNESS. I PAID THE FACILITY AND LEFT,. I THEN WALKED INTO THE MID COUNTY URGENT CARE ONLY TO BE DIAGNOSED WITH BRONCHITIS AND BORDER LINE PNEUMONIA. SO THANKS FOR TAKING MY MONEY. LORD KNOWS I DONT NEED IT. UGH. I WILL TELL EVERYONE ABOUT MY EXPERIENCE.

Wonderful doctor. Great with children.

I went to Dr Fontenot for saliva gland swelling, pain and infection. His essentially did nothing but say to call him if it occurs again. I did that and he sent me to have my thyroid checked and ordered a scan of my glands. The finding was there is narrowing in the artery and I am to continue to use warm compresses, take antibotics and go to Baylor for additional testing. I find him to be a finger pointer while filling his bank account. Point you to anyone else he can so he does nothing.
