Amazing Dr.

The only complaint was the girl that was at the front desk. I am not sure if she is still there or not but she was very loud and not professional at all. Due to her being so loud on the phone the people in the waiting room were able to hear everything about the patient including the name and date of birth. Dr. Fontana is amazing as well as the clinical staff.

Would you want this?

I was ID'ed to at least one person off the street and then told what my "treatment plan" (that wasn't correct) was. If you want privacy, that is a huge issue. If you want things said about you that are not completely factually correct, why? Why did a doctor say twice they weren't supposed to talk about patients but do any way, especially when it gives a derogatory reputation to a patient who didn't deserve it?
