Dr. Douglas Fonteyne's Ratings
The front end staff are always forgetting my paper work and have called me to come back to get the rest of it. There conversations while I sit in the waiting room are completely unprofessional. I got stitches removed after an accident and he didn't remove all of them. No big deal, there was lots of blood and scanning but when I called to inform him, the front end staff told me they would tell the doctor of my concern and get back to me. Whats the point of having a family doctor if this is the service. I'll probably just go back to going to medicenters.
I really like Dr. Fonteyne. He makes me feel comfortable all the time, and I feel at home with him. However if I had one criticism is that, he jumps to the point right away, and while not beating around the bush is good, he says oh your problem is xyz here is a prescription, come see me again if you have more issues, and hes out the door. I realize he is a very busy man, and I am understanding. Others might not be. So for that, I give him 4 stars.
Dr. Fonteyne has been my doctor since I was a kid, and after leaving him for a bit because of the distance, I haven't been able to find another doctor that is as helpful and caring as he is. He's been my family's doctor for many years, and I'm definitely going to continue that with my future children.
I have been with Doug almost since he became a Doctor and have always been pleased with his performance and medical recommendations! He has always treated me with the utmost respect and candour. I will not be happy if he decides to retire before I do permanently!!! My wife uses him and she is very satisfied with him also.
Dr. Fonteyne has been our family physician for years. He is absolutely incredible. He is a wonderful, caring and considerate doctor with a terrific sense of humour. He spends as much time as we need at every visit. If we have to wait...it's well worth it because we know we are getting the best care in Edmonton. We feel lucky to be in his care as he is extremely knowledgable and thorough. He's the best of the best!!
Dr. Fonteyne is simply the best! I have been seeing him since he was in castledowns but stopped when he moved to Millwoods. After trying 3 different family doctors I no longer mind the 35 minute drive to see him. He does have a fair number of patients and you may have to wait an extra 20 minutes in his waiting room but it is well worth it. Polite, courteous, knowledgeable, and very friendly could not find a better Dr.
