“Dr. Fontenot was excellent. He was on time and very pleasant to deal with. He diagnosed the problem clearly and presented a plan of treatment in a logical manner.

He also counseled me on what I could do now to have an optimal surgery result in the future. He is a great addition to EmergOrtho, and I highly recommend him.”
