As someone else stated earlier. DONT Go see this doctor. I've been a simple case of ADHD since 38 yrs ago. I saw Fabor when I moved to Al. And he continued my past care because after 30 plus years. I don't require much. Then you got cancer and literally survived a coma for over a month and several surgery's making my ADHD. Not a priority if I wasn't working. So, I got better, wanted to start my job again. He treated me terrible! The med he gave me for 3 yrs. HE MADE ME FEEL GUILTY. DONT GO !!

DO NOT Dr. Faber or anyone In his clinic! I seen Dr. Faber & he diagnosed me with major depression, anxiety & PTSD he put me on Viibryd 40mg a day (anti depressant) 1mg Xanax. I seen him for 8 months. Then he sent me a letter saying they could no longer see me. Didn’t tell y. I called & still don’t get told y. So he made me cold turkey both meds he had me on, which is very dangerous. I ended up n the ER due to having seizures from withdrawals from the Xanax. DO NOT USE THIS DR!!!!

I saw Dr. Faber when he practiced in Ahoskie, NC after having seen many other psychiatrists before. Dr. Faber is a very caring physician and protective of his patients. He helped me GREATLY and gave me the tools to deal with long-term emotional abuse. He is definitely one of a kind and I highly recommend him! Plus he has a great sense of humor!
