I would highly recommend Dr Fairbanks. It had been several years since my last visit but some things still don't change. Outstanding doctor experience and probably the reason I am still around today to make this recommendation.

Dr Fairbanks is a prince among men. What a wonderful, thorough and caring man of medicine. The Doc and I first met in 2014 and I required surgery. He was going on a skiing vacation the next day but he chose to stay and do the surgery the night before. He did a great job and fixed the problem. I returned to him last week for a new problem. My wife came with me and she was very impressed by his diagnosis skills and knowledge. He has once again fixed me with some antibiotics. His nursing staff was

Very knowledgeable and caring. Although, very busy but finds time to do the necessary things as required. I see him as my God sent savior on earth. I trust him very well and most of all, my health has improved significantly since I met him. Joseph Abanaka from Lewisville Texas

Dr. fairbanks bedside manner was always very strange as he makes little eye contact when speaking with you and never acknowledges other people in the room other than patient. Information given was often incomplete or left you still questioning. He was not able to cure an infection which went on for weeks leaving my fathers health to decline. Went to another doc. for testing, and we finally have the correct antibiotics prescribed to cure infection. No one will ever call you back.

The practice has moved their office to a new larger location in the same building that is far better than the former office. They now have more Urologists and appointments seem to have less wait time. Dr. Fairbanks has been very helpful to me over the past 3 years. I appreciate his taking the time to answer my questions.

Waiting time was minimal in the waiting room and in the patient room waiting for Dr Fairbanks. The staff I talked to and Dr Fairbanks were very friendly and upbeat and very efficient.

Easy to talk to; knowledgeable. Wish I had more time to discuss personal concerns prior to scheduling of treatment. I respect his opinion, but know my body better because it houses me 24/7.

Dr Fairbanks mumbles. He repeats himself. He seems very awkward with patients. His advice was to get an xray every other week, take the rxs given and then wait for kidney stones to pass! Which didn't happen! His nurse was supposed to send rx to pharmacy on Friday but didn't send them until Monday afternoon because I called her first thing Monday morning to tell her. She didn't even apologize! Always a long wait in the waiting room and in the patient room to be seen. Getting a new doctor!

I've found Dr. Fairbanks as knowledgeable and very good at relating in laymen's terms to make sure I understand everything surrounding my medical issue. He even took the time to call me back after the work day to answer questions about possible procedures and potential outcomes. It's very clear that his experience in his field is an asset and he exudes confidence that makes me feel very comfortable with where we're headed with my medical condition.

Like him a lot as a doctor, but what is up with the slowness of being seen?!! So many people in the waiting room that I had to stand in the hallway. Two hours waiting, to see the doctor for 6 minutes. This is not the first time it's happened. Dr. Fairbanks... you are a great doctor. Please don't overbook and please stay on schedule!

If I could rate the Flower Mound location with minus stars, I would. This is not a reflection of the skills of the staff but simply the lack of patient care. Just say that after prepping a patient for a procedure and placing her feet in stirrups, that patient should not have to wait 20 to 30 minutes in that position while the doctor sees another patient. Finally I gave up, wrangled myself out of the ark ward position, got dressed and proceeded to leave.

I got there early by about 30 min and was able to go right in. He was very helpful with cost effective treatment options. He was also very helpful with my list of questions and concerns.

Very considerate, professional, listens, explains, covers desired actions as well as possible unwanted results! Dr. Fairbanks' nurse/physician assistant was every bit as considerate and professional as Dr. Fairbanks. The least discomfort I've ever experienced for the procedure I had done.

Dr. Fairbanks has been my doctor for twenty years. He is very professional and gives me options to my medical needs and always treats me with kindness and respect. I go away feeling that I have been treated well by his staff also. A person can't go wrong if they pick Dr. Fairbanks as their urologist.
