Absolutely amazing Dr who truly cares about his patients & how their pain affects them & also their families! He's not a stuffy old Dr & is an expert & current in his knowledge of pain management & treatments. If you're looking for a "legal drug dealer" or don't intend to follow your contract, go elsewhere. But if you want a caring, understanding Dr to work WITH you not ON you, get in with Dr Fanto. It takes some time to get your 1st apt, but he's worth it. His staff are great as well.

If you are looking for an intelligent pain management physician and you are willing to be completely honest I would highly recommend Steve Fanto MD. Dr. Fanto is knowledgeable and understanding of my rare chronic medical condition. He's intelligent, kind, sympathetic, asks pertinent questions and listens to me and respond accordingly at every appointment. He has referred me to other excellent physicians. We work as a team trying to improve my quality of life. I feel he always has my back.

Dr. Fanto is very caring, understanding, compassionate and Energized. He's a great listener and is extremely proactive to demolish pain or at least makes sure his patients are comfortable and are able to function with their daily routines. Dr. Fanto is definitely one of the Best doctors I've ever known. I highly recommend Dr. Fanto and if distance from your location to his office is an issue, believe me, an office visit is well worth the drive and/or time involved to see this 5 Star Doctor.

Dr Steve Fanto is an awesome doctor and I would (and have) recommend him to anyone. He truly listens to you and your problems and actually cares. He is not afraid to order tests: Xrays MRIs @ or CT scans if he feels you need one to better assess and get you feeling better. He always has a smile and NEVER overbooks so if you wait more than 15 mins that's long. ROBIN VITTORE,MA is truly awesome too. She keeps the office running smooth and will truly drop what shes doing to assist you(Knowledgable

I have moderate to severe Chronic spine pain and spine muscle spasms. Dr. Fanto provides qualified patients with treatment to life a semi normal life. If your in pain you want to see a Board Certified Pain management like Dr Fanto. GP's are not qualified to dispense pain meds and will more often than not deny you treatment and extend your suffering. Pain meds are a last resort but if you need meds remember NSAIDS destroy kidney function whereas opiates do not.

I wish I would've found Dr. Fanto when I first moved to Phoenix last summer! But instead, I wasted an entire year with a horrible pain doctor because I had no reference to go on until I finally left her and thankfully found Dr. Fanto. He is above & beyond one of the best doctors I have ever seen! Appointments are always on time, the staff is super friendly and knows you by name and the best part is that Dr. Fanto is more concerned about your well-being rather than just following 'the rules'.
