In addition to the great reviews I have read regarding Dr. Fanta (to which, I concur), I have also found that in addition to being a great physician, he is also a detective, of sorts (reminds me of Peter Falk - Columbo, for those of you old enough to remember that show). Dr. Fanta not only LISTENS to what you tell him, but also, seizes on clues from most minute details derived from your conversations and tests, as to what is going on relative to your health. I highly recommend him.

I simply smile when I see Dr. Fanta :) He is the best Dr. I've ever had. He calms me down when I'm scared, listens and explains. He compliments me for my strength and gives me support to fight a rare disease. He quickly responds to questions.
