Specialties

Dr. Christopher H Fanta has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

World-class specialist

Having been a patient of several pulmonologists at another major Boston teaching hospital I can say without reservation that Dr. Fanta is as good as it gets. Encyclopedic knowledge of his field and a gifted clinician. He's also a wonderful person. If you suffer from pulmonary disease consider yourself lucky if he's your doctor.

The very best pulmonologist I've ever had as a doctor

The first time I met Dr. Fanta he took a lot of time to understand my previous history with asthma. He really took time to listen and make sure he understood what I was telling him. He's great at providing me with the details of all tests that I'm interested in. He's VERY punctual. He provides suggestions of ways to reduce issues and gives me a lot of confidence in his abilities and knowledge. I recommend Dr. Fanta without reservation.
