One of the worst, uncaring physicians I've ever met. I usually don't see anyone other my primary, but after my MRI that showed bulging discs, degenerative disc disease, tarlov cyst, and more that I don't even understand. My primary was at a loss and referred me to moi spine specialist. I'm 33 years old and have pain of lower back everyday. I have tried muscle relaxers, PT, chiropractors & so much more I was hoping for some answers today. After I was walked into the room, I was told to take my pants off and put these shorts on. It's easier for DR to perform his exam. He was not in my room for one minute before he checked my reflexes. That was THE ONLY exam he performed. The 7 minutes he was in my room he looked at MRI for a split second and said, "they call it arthritis, I would not call it that. Everything looks normal. You just need to exercise. Then he looked at me and asked if I had any questions?" I was shocked that he didn't talk about any of the bulging discs, the cyst, or even degenerative disc disease. I didn't even want to ask him, cuz if he didn't see it I definitely didn't want to waste anymore of his time. He definitely wasted my time. I only seen him for about 7 minutes and THAT WAS JUST 7 MINUTES TOO LONG. Horrible HORRIBLE uncaring person.
Fauble wasn't good listener, dismissive, and arrogant. Didn't thoroughly exam or offer answers, but certainly passed me asking to colleagues to bill me further. False marketing leads you to believe your condition will be treated, instead to be at up with other doctors to do what he SHOULD have. Very sad the way he takes advantage of your insurable and has no true compassion or desire to help patients.
Dr. Faubel is fantastic! I have now seen him several times, and each time I was seen promptly at my appointment time. He is both compassionate and knowledgeable. He clearly explains his recommendations, yet he is not pushy while patients weigh their options. Additionally, Dr. Faubel actually reviewed all of the records from my previous doctor BEFORE my appointment was even made. When I arrived for my first appointment, he was very well prepared and familiar with my history. He listened intently to both my wife's and my concerns along with my goals for treatment. He then proceeded to efficiently and coherently present options that were well-suited to my ultimate goal of returning to work as soon as possible. After working with other orthopaedic doctors for over three years, Dr. Faubel succeeded in helping me when no one else seemed to have any answers. His staff is also friendly, helpful, and competent.
