Dr. Fahler exhibited very unprofessional behavior during the 2/2 visits we have had with him. In my many years of parenting, many visits to pediatricians, I have never encountered such an odd Pediatrician. He contradicted himself, raised his voice for absolutely no reason. Told me that he did not care about my child. Thankfully, I went with my instincts and politely left mid-appointment. We will stick with our regular doctor. Although a bit harsh, I would not trust Dr. Fahler with any child.

Between my kids Dr Fahler is the 6th pediatrician we have been to. My son was terrified of Drs until we went to Dr. Fahler. He took 20 minutes talking to my son before he even tried to exam him- that tells you everything about the kind of Dr that he is. Appts never seem rushed, and he is very thorough. He is also up to date on latest research. I am baffled by the negative review b/c that is not our experience with him or his staff. I am really sad that we moved and can't see him anymore.

Our toddler has been seeing Dr. Fahler since he was born. I have been thrilled with my experiences with Dr. Fahler. He is actively engaged in conversation, addresses my concerns, explains information clearly, and I appreciate that he engages in conversation with me in a very professional (not at all condescending) way. I have been pleased with how all of our baby well visits have been handled. We have visited for illness on 2 occasions and Dr. Fahler has been wonderful. I cannot say enough

I have wanted to switch from this pediatrician for 3.5 of the 4 years we have seen him, but I was too lazy...or tired. My first negative experience involved a cancellation for a well visit booked months in advance with no appointment available before 3 months...we saw the NP instead. The second incident involved the doctor not following up with me about a recommendation he said he'd check on and the third incident is his condescending way of communicating with parents. I am done.
