He seems very competent. My main concern is that he didn't give me yearly labs that needed to be done along with the routine labs. I was unable to get my meds renewed until the yearly labs were done. I didn't get notification of this for two weeks after I had called and left messages and talked to someone and got inaccurate info. Once I was informed I immediately did the lab work, which took a week to get back. A full month after I needed my meds I finally got a renewal.

In my opinion Dr. Fairfax and his staff do not care about their patients. They could care less if you need help. We waited over three months for an appointment, had all the necessary paperwork and ID minus the actual insurance card. They had a picture of the card from the referring physician. They refused to see my daughter. Their belligerence at the counter sent her into a panic attack and they did not make any attempt to help her. Run the other way!

Dr. Fairfax was a wonderful physicians that treated me like a person instead of an X-Ray. After 6 years of treatment I came into his office as a new patient (Silverman retired from patient care) Dr. Fairfax had reviewed my chart new my surgeries, medications, life skills.... He listened to my improvements with change in eating and did not degrade me.... I 100% recommend him to anyone that wants to be treated like an individual instead of a chart.
