I had a fantastic experience with Dr Fountain and her staff. Scheduling was smooth & the front desk were friendly. Her nurse Susan was excellent. She kept me up to date with my insurance approval status and prepared me well for surgery. Dr Fountain is very professional, compassionate, and skilled. She took the time to explain everything and answer all of my questions. My surgery went well, and I had a great outcome. I work in healthcare and know excellent care when I see it. I would highly recommend this practice.

Excellent work - professional staff

Dr. Fountain did a functional upper blepharoplasty on both eyes. From the initial consult through the final check-up, she and her entire staff instilled confidence and calm. The surgery was successful, the healing quick, and the scar line is invisible. I'm not only glad I had the surgery, but extremely happy that Dr. Fountain performed the surgery.
