Ratings for Dr. Douglas Fonteyne
The staff at this office are friendly and helpful. Dr. Fonteyne is an amazing doctor!! He makes me smile even when I'm feeling horrible. He is very personable, will take the time to really talk to you and to really listen to you. He is knowledgeable...but I love that if he doesn't know something he isn't afraid to say so and will research it or send you to a specialist. For a doctor, he is as punctual as he can be...I'm always surprised how close to my appointment time that I get in, considering how much time he will take to answer my many questions. He cares about me as a "whole" patient...not just whatever I have come in to see him about. I would recommend him to anyone....but then he would get too busy!
He refuses to listen to any problems when you have an appointment and just wants to rush you through to get to the next patient. Recently he even forgot about some of my issues and prescribed medication that conflicted with my migraines. My mother also asked him about a condition and he simply shrugged it off and told her it was her lot in life
I have been seeing Dr. Fonteyne for almost 10 yrs now and I feel so lucky to have found such a wonderful doctor. He is always personable and attentive to all the little things I have concerns about. I would never go to see another doctor after having found such a gem!
I believe that if it wasn't for Dr. Fonteyne's early detection and excellent diagnosis of my prostate cancer and his persistence in getting me in to see a Urologist in a timely manner, I would of suffered many complications after having my prostate removed. Even though he was advised by a prominent Urologist in Edmonton to advise me, "not to worry about it" he believed that my PSA results and family history warranted further investigation. He finally convinced a Urologist to see me and sure enough after a further testing it was determined that I had the early stages of a aggressive carcinoma in my prostate. I was fortunate that the cancer was still in its early stages and still surrounded by healthy tissue in the gland and I qualified for non-evasive laper-scopic robotic radical prostatectomy (The Da Vinci Machine) and I am very grateful to report that 18 months post procedure I am almost fully recovered i.e. PSA undetectable , almost completely continent , and with a little help from cialis still enjoy a robust s_x life. I owe Dr. Doug Fonteyn my life and my quality of life and trust his medical expertise for any of mine or my families health concerns. I have been seeing him for over ten years he's a fantastic Doctor. If you can get in to see him I highly recommend him.... it's worth the wait.
Dr. Fonteyne is a wonderful doctor. I have been seeing him for over 12 years and won't go to another doctor. Yes, he can be tricky to get in to see sometimes, and yes, he sometimes does seem rushed, but he really cares about his patients and is very knowledgable and personable. I never feel that my visit is compromised because he is too busy to see me. The office staff are a little rude but have gotten better recently. Dr. Fonteyne is a wonderful doctor, can't blame him for being so busy when there is such a shortage of GPs.
I have been seeing Dr. Fonteyne for almost 10 years now and I would not go to any other doctor. He is so down to earth and always takes the time to address all my concerns at my visits. I feel so lucky to have found such a fabulous doctor in a time when there aren't a lot of good ones available.
