in Eugene, OR |
I need an emergency gallbladder surgery. Dr. Fontus calmly and clearly explained the procedure, and then performed impeccable surgery. His bedside manner, demeanor, and all-around nice-guy-ness was indispensable in my treatment and Recovery. I could not recommend a doctor more highly.
