What Are Cancer Screenings?
The Galleri™ cancer screening offered at Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine is a preventive step toward detecting cancers in the early stages. These cancer screenings are completed through liquid biopsies (a blood test), where they are used to detect any cancer cells in the body. It is different than your usual mammogram or colonoscopy because it is able to detect cancer cells early before they develop into advanced stages. It is a quick, easy, and great way for many of our San Diego, CA patients to learn about what can be done in the next steps of their treatment plans. For more information on how we conduct our cancer screenings, contact our office and schedule an appointment.
What Happens During A Cancer Screening?
Cancers like ovarian and pancreatic are rare forms that are hard to treat and rarely caught in the early stages. However, a cancer screening at Fontaine MD Aesthetics and Anti-Aging Medicine in San Diego, CA, is a safe and effective way to detect cancer cells before they reach a critical stage. During your screening, one of our medical professionals will conduct a blood draw. Once your blood is taken, it is sent off to be analyzed for any indicators of cancer cells. Some of the cancers that are able to be detected with this screening method include:
- Colon cancer
- Breast cancer
- Ovarian cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
- Gallbladder cancer
- Esophageal cancer
- Adrenal cortical carcinoma
It is important to note that although this cancer screening is quick and easy, it should be used as a tool in addition to other cancer screenings. For more information on how we complete cancer screenings in our office, schedule an appointment with our team.

Fontaine MD Reviews
I don’t give out 5 stars that often and especially to doctors.Had my fair share theses last two years having just recovered from throat cancer. Anyway , I found Dr.Fontaine to be very down to earth and friendly which gave me a lot of confidence in him. I visited the facility to get the health check for anti aging and living forever pills . After a full review of my blood test it was decided more tests were needed. I really did not expect to hear from him much after that as my prognosis was not what I expected.To the contrary he followed up with e-mails of advice, another tele conference to go through more test and we have a plan in place to fight the normal aging issues of cholesterol, body fat etc while I deal with the extra tests I needed.The simple fact is that the blood test that Dr. Fontaine performed on me were more detailed than the ones your primary care physician does. Theses test found a problem that I probably would not have found for years and maybe by then it would have been too late. In short , probably saved my life. Wow
I cannot say enough amazing things about this place. Doctor Fontaine and the other amazing staff create the most welcoming, comfortable environment. They truly care about you and the results of their patients. Will forever recommend this place to anyone.
I can’t thank Dr.Fontaine enough! Menopause is certainly a subject that is not talked about enough it changes lives and for some it destroys them. I was at a point in my life during menopause where I was ready to die, that’s how bad I felt, only six weeks later after Dr Fontaines program based on MY blood, MY hormones! Not a generalized version for every woman! 🤬WTF is that? I feel better than I have since 2017 which is when I began menopause. Why menopause is not talked about and not covered by insurance for this kind of treatment is beyond my comprehension but I am grateful for people like Dr. Fontaine and his staff! Life changer. If you are on the fence, do it!!!
Okay so I have been doing Botox and fillers for years. I have never considered doing fillers for my under eyes as I was always nervous to. But naturally with age things have started to droop. Finally I decided to bite the bullet and go in for a consultation. I met nurse Sam and after a detailed consultation I felt enough confidence to jump forward with the treatment. Sam made the entire experience fun, comfortable and educational. Not to mention the results are EXCEPTIONAL. I was afraid of looking fake or overfilled which Sam ensured me that I would not and that I would only look refreshed. Everything she said from the start to finish of what I should expect was on point! Her skill level of technique was so advanced and she made the treatment easy. I couldn’t be happier with my results and my overall experience. Sam isn’t just a nurse, she becomes your friend who will make you look and feel your best. Can’t wait for her to treat me again.
Dr. Fontaine has been amazing! I have seen several similar doctors in his field prior to seeing Dr. Fontaine, he is by far the best. I highly recommend Dr. Fontaine and his staff is also very professional and knowledgeable. Two Thumbs Up!!
