Dr. Fay is an excellent physician and because of his thoroughness has saved my life on more than one occasion. He really cares about his patients as does his staff. Not once in the many years that he has been my doctor has he ever been rude or unprofessional.

Dr. Fay is a wonderful doctor. He has always treated me with respect and listens even if we disagree. I think he does look at all the things that could be going on in the body and goes thru the process of elimination. He is a good doctor for me and his staff are always nice.

Sadly the Internet has become a vehicle where primarily unhappy people voice complaints anonymously more so than pleased customer/patients. Narcotic addiction is a major cause of death and disharmony in our society. What hurts more than a reflex hammer, which is used in every physical, is being told you need to go to a pain clinic because you have an addiction. There is no reprisal just hope for recovery
