One of the best I have gone to, friendly staff, and a great doctor.
Livingston, NJ |
You will NEVER find a more cold-hearted, unprofessional, smart-mouth, with NO bedside manner! The staff won't answer the phone or return calls, even during business hours. I have a disease which has caused me to see 100+ doctors, since the age of 12. THIS man does NOT CARE ABOUT YOUR WELLBEING or anything, besides getting in and out of that room!. I kept calling and leaving messages to inform these "medical professionals" my foot split wide open the day they removed the stitches. About a wk ago

The worstdoctor I have ever had. No bed side manor at all. Rudiest person I have ever met
in summertown tn |
I would say he is an excellent surgeon. But i will never go back due to his rudeness, does not listen, and is very arrogant! His bedside manner has a lot to desire
Went in for my foot and had a Mri done before went and said I had some stuff done wrong to it and he said I was just fine had to go to Columbia and now they r looking at doing surgery. It is like he only cares about some people there.
Worst experience as far as all my surgeries goes. Had issues with surgery the doctor didn't wanna take the time to see me. I even had issues after surgery and he wouldn't even come into my room and look at me.
in Waynesboro Tn. |
He was a very friendly doctor. He spoke to us not at us. An he did a wonderful job on my daughters broken arm.
Ethridge, TN |
Dr. Fontenot is a very good surgeon. I have seen other reviews where patients have said he is in a hurry. I don't believe that's the case, he does talk fast, but he never rushed out of the room for my appointment or when I had my surgery. He answered every question my husband and I had. He did not leave the room until our questions were answered. He was very professional, and I highly recommend him.
