    Faber, Dr.
    After my wonderful doctor of 15 years closed his practice, I was looking for a new physician. Dr. Faber is new to our community and the clinic he is working for. His practice has been open 2 weeks here. When I called about an appointment, the first words out of the receptionists mouth after an appointment date was "Be aware that Dr Faber does not believe in pain medication treatments." I did hear her, i thought that was an odd comment, but thought maybe she was overstating. . I walked into the appointment today, to hear the doctor scolding his receptionist about how he only had 8 minutes between patients because she had not done something, didn't hear what. I was there with two objectives, get my hand looked at where I had a severely infected wound and to establish care with a new physician. I was called in for the appointment, the Dr arrived in the room timely, he asked me why I was there to see him, I told him I was looking for a new doctor. He opened my new chart to read the summary I had brought him from my retired physician, which included the fact that I am going out of the area very soon for diagnostic tests at a university hospital for a suspected surgical need. ( I need a doctor urgently to continue my care!) When he saw what my medications were, he didn't ask about my pending health care needs, or my obviously swollen discolored hand, he asked why I took a pain pill, he made the absolute statement " I do not prescribe pain medications." I said "I am open to other alternatives, bearing in mind what has been tried and the results in the last 3 years since my car accident". He stood up said I never, under any circumstances, give my patients pain medication except in very short term acute care situations. I tried to continue the conversation discussing my immediate primary heath care need, the upcoming tests and a need for a doc to evaluate them, etc. He was silent, glared at me, and said I don't think you understand, the conversation is over, I will not take you as a patient, you take pain medication. I wont bill you for this visit, good bye, leave my office. I said, " but you haven't even looked at my hand" I tried to back the conversation up. I said, "I'm not sure how we got off on the wrong foot or what I said to you ... but I apologize for whatever I said or did to offend, can we start again?" He said "no, we are done and pointed to the door!" AS I left, the receptionist saw that I was visibly shaken She asked what had happened, I told her. I also said "He diddnt even look at my hand! I guess I'm going to Urgent care! I find it unbelievable that we need a new doctor so much in this community and and ..... I need to go talk to someone. I walked over to the administrative offices of the Clinic/Hospital and filed a complaint with the medical director. Bottom line, If you are looking for a warm, friendly, compassionate doctor, or you ever think you might need pain medication for any reason what so ever, look elsewhere, you will not find it in Dr Faber. God help any patients of his who get a painful illness, or even Cancer.... it is my opinion they will suffer in agony under his care with no relief. No bedside manner, no tact, short fuse??, unprofessional.
