Hector L. Fontanet, MD, FACC's Resources


I have been his patient for around 14 years and I can say that he is the best cardiologist and medical professional that I have ever had. Thank you so much for all you do, taking care of my heart and for everything you do to make my life so much easier.
Evelyn A. M.

"Glad I went to visit."

Dr. Fontanet listened very attentively to my concerns, discussed with me the choices I had, and recommended a plan. Very respectful. Took the time to explain and recommend the proper treatment. Glad I went to visit.
Maria R.

"Forever grateful for his dedication"

Dr. Fontanet apart from being a great Cardiologist is a very kind doctor. His thoughtfulness is remarkable. My mother had an appointment with Dr. Hector Fontanet back in March and she had to reach out to me for several clarifications, as she is an older person (80 years old). Dr. Fontanet demonstrated empathy, understanding, and kindness during the process that lasted few minutes. I am forever grateful for his dedication to serve his patients with excellence and compassion! We need more doctors like Doctor Hector Fontanet!
Consuelo D.

"I feel great"

the absolute best cardiologist I've ever been to. While others thought my problems were pulmonary, he knew right away it was a cardiac problem. And I was having triple bypass surgery the next week. I feel great
Eddie C.
