I saw Dr. Fonn about 5 years ago after I fell mowing my yard and hit an uphill muddy patch and injured nerves in both arms. Dr. Fonn insisted on injecting my spine with steroids 3 separate times---a practice since found to not be helpful based on evidence-based medical literature. He then wanted to do back surgery and fuse my spine for a arthritic change in my neck--how come that wasn't mentioned before? When I asked to see him again to discuss the procedure, this was refused twice in person

This doctor is condescending to his staff. He yells and curses at them. I would not ever recommend this man. He is not a compassionate caring person

Money hungry. Horrible manners. I wouldn't let him do back surgery on my dog. He done one level on my back. And after the surgery I had some CT scans done. I took a look at the CT results and seem a lot of thinning on the disc above. I call that job security. Also if you do anything he don't like, he, will harass you every time you see him. He is a horrible excuse for a person, let alone alone a doctor.

This doctor and his staff are the WORST I've ever come across. The staff is incredibly rude, the wait is several hours long, then when seen its less than 1 min. I've had to have my injections rescheduled less than 24 hrs before, because they don't want to work late, and after I've already taken off work. Today, was the topper. Due to my case being from a collision, I'm only allowed to come in 1 day a week between 8am and 11am, due to the case manager working just that time. I had to bring

Very difficult to call you will be on eternal hold after20min. I hang up and when you leave a voice mail for office manager she does not return your calls I have leftseveral messages only to get no call back. Otherwise Dr.Fonn is a terrific Neuro surgeon

Great surgeon, but very money hungry!! My physical therapist told me to find a new neurosurgeon since he wants to do a second surgery that's not necessary. He also laughs at you when you mention a chiropractor and gets mad at you when you mention getting a second opinion. Very rude bedside manors. I would not recommend to anyone, except for an emergency surgery.
