Have you seen Dr. Steve Fanto?
Fraudulent and only money motivated
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Steve Fanto - Posted on October 26th, 2017
Please look up Dr. Fanto on the AZ State Medical Board actions. He over prescribes pain medications and uses inappropriate doses that put patients lives in danger. He has recently had patients pass away from inappropriate use of combinations of opioid based pain medications. One medication, only approved for break through cancer pain, was prescribed by Dr. Fanto to a non cancer patient at a starting doe of 800mcg. The approved starting dose is 100mcg. This is one of the most powerful opioid based meds on the market and he used it inappropriately. Furthermore, Dr. Fanto was named in a lawsuit for accepting "kick-back" payments from a drug manufacturer for his prescriptions of their drug. He recently lost his license to practice medicine a is no longer in practice. Unethical, money driven and not concerned about staying true to his Hippocratic oath.
Dr. Fanto Specializes In Pain Management
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Steve Fanto - Posted on July 12th, 2017
I travel a long way to see Dr. Fanto every month. He is very knowledgeable about all aspects of pain management and how to safely prescribe your pain meds. He is very personable and quickly puts you at ease when you are dealing with pain 24/7. I could not recommend Dr. Fanto and his staff more highly.
Dr. Fanto is very helpful

Absolutely like Dr. Fanto, but his office staff (Robin) needs to GO!!! She is the most rudest person I've ever met. I understand that she may have been doing double-duty, but that's no reason to be rude to people. People already go there not feeling well. They shouldn't have to put up with her verbal abuse and attitude. I can't believe that Dr. Fanto allows this.

I have been seeing Dr. Fanto's for almost 8 years now. I actually left once for a Dr closer to me,( I live in Casa Grande) but soon asked to be taken back as a patient as he is well worth the drive. He and his staff have taken VERY good care of me and anybody would be lucky to have him as their pain management Physician.

I really like Dr. Fanto; however, the receptionist is extremely rude. She not only was incredibly rude to me over the phone, but when I went for my visit, she was very rude to others over the phone. When people are in a lot of pain, they don't need her attitude and the rolling of her eyes. I've never been treated so unprofessionally in all of my life. Dr. Fanto should really rethink who is running the office. She is not doing his business any favors.

I actually went to Dr Fanto back in 1998. He helped me so much with my issues and is one of the best doctors I've ever been to.

Excellent Doctor, Compassionate

I have been going to Dr. Fanto for about 13 months. He is very kind and compassionate. I was embarrassed about the swelling in my legs from my weight and my knees. Dr Fanto said " that swelling is not normal, it is something else" He was right. I went to the Cardiologist and found out that I have a heart condition that causes swelling in my legs and high blood pressure. It is kind of a serious condition. None of my other doctors, specialists ever even thought of looking into the possibility that my fatness, swollen legs could be anything but that! I thank him for that. I also thank him for keeping my pain under control. I am facing double knee replacement, gallbladder surgery and a hysterectomy. His staff is very kind. I notice when I am waiting to see him that all of his patients look like they are in real pain and he does Not cater to drug seekers. I am thankful for that also. I highly recommend him and his staff. Wonderful doctor, great staff.
WONDERFUL, PROFESSIONAL, COMPASSIONATE AND CONCERNED!!!
