I have been seeing Dr, Fairbanks for over 4 years and find her a compassionate knowledgeable doctor. She has the ability to help me understand what is causing my issues and allowed me choices for treatment. She always makes sure to answer my questions before and after procedures that were needed. She also recognizes me when she sees me since the first time I met her and is prepared for our appointment.

I am a new patient. Dr. Fairbanks is so professional, patient and friendly. She took time for my appointment to help me figure out my problems, didn't feel she was rush at all. So far probably the best doctor's visit experience for me.
