"I've seen Dr. Fontana for over 24 years. I must say that he has always given me the best care possible each time I have seen him over all these years. He's been doing it so long that in just a few minutes he can diagnose a problem that others fail to find. Dr.Fontana will spend as much time as needed with you to make sure you get the answers you are seeking. Dr. Fontana has treated me with dignity and respect each time I have seen him over the years. I highly recommend Dr. Fontana."
