Drexel Hill, PA |
Dr Fountain-Ellis is one of the best doctors I've ever had. She always takes tons of time with me and talks to figure out what's going on. She's very companionate, caring and personal. I actually enjoy and long forward to my visits. She is thorough and knowledgeable. She always explains things so I understand.
