I met Dr. Fantes today. I have a 17 year old daughter who was at risk for glaucoma. After seeing a few different doctors, I ended up at Bascom Palmer and coincidentally with Dr. Fantes because she started out with the pediatric group and ended up with Dr. Fantes, the glaucoma specialist. His mannerism and professionalism was beyond approach. I feel very lucky to have found him to treat my family which has a history of glaucoma. A brilliant doctor. And my experience at Bascom was wonderful. We loved Rita and the group with Dr. McKeown. I feel very fortunate to have Bascom Palmer and Dr. Fantes in my city.
