Referred to Dr.Faust after thyroid biopsy. He took a great deal of time explaining options, he answered all of my questions and alleviated my fears. I was pleasingly surprised at how well I felt right after surgery and continue to feel. I am very grateful that Dr.Faust and Jessica, his Nurse Practitioner are so passionate about their field of expertise.

I really like Dr. Faust. It was my first experience having a thyroid biopsy done. Dr. Faust put me at ease and his bedside manner is very reassuring. He listens to you and explains everything and answers questions you have. During my biopsy he was very reassuring and talked me through step by step. So glad he was recommended by my GP.

Dr Faust performed a partial thyroidectmy. He took his time to explain the procedure and made me feel relaxed. It is 2 weeks post surgery and I feel great and incision healing fine. I would highly recommend dr Faust. The staff at Rex Med were awesome

Dr. Faust removed my thyroid, a malignant (4.5 cm) tumor, and 18 lymph nodes. I lost some of my singing voice, but I was very worried about my vocal chords already and knew this was a common problem w/ this surgery. My father had the same cancer and one of his vocal chords was completely paralyzed by his surgeon, Dr. Faust performed a laryngoscopy, but my Dad didn't have that. I recommended him as his surgeon, but he couldn't wait. He had bad results because he did not have a quality surgeon.

Excellent experience with thyroid removal surgery. Dr. Faust gave very complete explanation of procedure, including reasons it was required and what would happen if surgery were delayed. Answered all questions taking as long as needed. Excellent surgical results with very minimal scar. Would highly recommend him.

The provider made a statement that made me feel extremely uncomfortable while I was speaking with him. I proceeded to share some history with another condition that could relate to this current condition since they are both hormone related. As I was speaking, he said to me, Get to the point. I was at an emotional state where I didn't feel like correcting him at the moment but that comment stuck with me. As a result I have selected to find another provider. I felt that his comment was rude.
