I was sent to Dr. Fares as a second opinion. What surprised me was Dr. Fares' hesitations in taking me to surgery. Previous doctors wanted to take me to surgery the next day. Dr. Fares sought non-surgical treatment and after a few months, my symptoms and pain are now gone.

Dr. Fares was extremely rude. I have been in extreme pain for several weeks and he told me I was in too much pain to exam. He told me to return in 2 months. He talked down to me and treated me poorly.
