Coldwater, MI |
I really like Dr. Fontana, he is very thorough, takes time with you and will explain what he is doing with your care and why he is doing it. The only thing I don't like about Dr. Fontana is that sometimes he can be grumpy, it really depends on the day, but he knows his stuff and is a very good doctor. I would have no problem recommending him to other patients.

I see him for follow up of Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis. He always answers my questions, thoroughly and doesn't make promises he can't keep.
