Dr. Fontana is a wonderful MD. Educated, kind, and takes his time explaining everything to you. I have my full trust in him. I am so sorry to hear he is leaving Physicians East. It will be hard to find another MD to full his shoes. Thank you Dr. Fontana. Your Italian patient from NE. G. Ferrara.

Fantastic Cardiologist. He listens to his patients and takes the appropriate time to understand their problems and find a solution. He saved my life and I am so glad he is my cardiologist. Other doctors had determined my problems were not cardiac, but Dr. Fontana stepped in and immediately ordered cath and found multiple blockages. He is compassionate, empathetic, generous, and an overall great human being. I wish I could give him higher than 5 stars!
