Ratings for Dr. Roger A. Fontes
I made an appointment because I knew Dr Fontes had been with Dr. Ravitch, who was terrific. I had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, bursitis, gone to pain doctors that did procedures and cost a lot of money, but did no good. Dr Fontes asked me to walk down the hall so he could see me walk. I was in a lot of pain. I turned around and he wasn't even watching me, he was talking to someone. Back in the exam room, he excused himself because he said he needed to talk to someone. He was gone awhile. He took xrays, then he told me he couldn't do anything for me surgically, I wasn't bad enough. I think he didn't like my insurance. He gave me opioids and dismissed me. I found a great Orthopedic Sports doctor through my boss, and he was totally different. Showed me the x-rays and told me he could fix me, each hip was bone on bone, causing the horrible pain and bursitis. He did both surgery's as soon as we could, (one at a time) and I am now so much better. No longer need pain meds. I can walk again, can move and do chores and still working. It's amazing. When I was being prepped for surgery, the nurse concurred with me about the doctors. Seems Dr Fontes was not the best Doctor on their list either.
