I truly don’t understand these negative reviews re: Dr. Fontaneres. I have been seeing her since my beloved Dr. Muhlendorf retired about ten years ago. Yes, sometimes there is a significant wait, but I block out extra time in my schedule to accommodate this possibility. I don’t begrudge her spending extra time with a needier patient when I’m there for a routine appointment. She has always had a smile on her face and is very chatty during any exam (and a few slightly embarrassing procedures). She takes my concerns to heart and even made my daughter very comfortable during her first visit before she went to college, explaining everything as she moved from instrument to instrument and everything she was doing. The receptionists and nurses have always been welcoming.
