For anyone who would contemplate seeing this doctor, please don't. We don't want anyone else to go through what our family did. My mother was misdiagnosed, he gave her the wrong treatment and when the cancer spread he told her it was scar tissue. He refused to schedule ct scans. He was extremely incompassionate. He told us all along she would go into remission but she didn't. By the time it had spread, he said that she only had weeks to live and there was nothing he could do. She was in constant, excrutiating pain always. Staff nurses were incompetent and totally lacking in compassion. We question whether or not they are even licensed. The office itself is filthy and should be checked by the health department. We also believe that the doctor is also mentally unstable, having suffered injuries from an bicycle accident recently. He took two vacations in one month due to "stress".

Shows compassion, knowledge, understanding and competence. Gives the patient the opportunity to ask questions and assist in choosing various treatment options. Has excellent follow-up and continued care who's.Highly recommended.
April 28th, 2011Wonderful, devoted physician
Dr. Faig is very kind, professional and reassuring. I am grateful to have found him for follow-ups the past 6 years. He always takes the time to talk and answer any questions I may have that may concern me. Not too many physicians today will take the time with patients that Dr. Faig does.
September 19th, 2010Complete failure as an oncologist
July 25th, 2010Efficiency at its best
A 39 years old, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and subsequently opted for a mastectomy and recommended rounds of chemotherapy with Dr. Faig. Dr. Faig has been compassionate, patient and reassuring. I continue to recommend him highly. He was on the money with my treatment because I'm posting now 8 years later and as a health care professional, I have every faith in his judgment and execution of same. Absolutely awesome!
July 17th, 2010Dedicated, caring, professional
Always understanding, always patient, and always responsive to questions or concerns. And these adjectives extend to his relationship with the family as well as his patient.I have not included a star rating for the office staff or appointment wait time because our mother saw Dr. Faig at a publicly-funded hospital Cancer Center and not at his private practice office due to insurance. The Cancer Center is more like a clinic than a private office and suffers from the drawbacks associated with an institution with a very heavy patient load.
