Have you seen Dr. Douglas Faig?
Posted on March 24th, 2017
Was referred to Dr. Faig by my PCP for anemia. Dr. Faig was very thorough, working to identify the source of the anemia. Finally had to have an IV iron infusion. During the five hours there, the nursing staff was awesome. Have trust in both Dr. Faig and his staff.

Dr Faig saw my brother while in Broward Hospital North. His visit was extremely brief and he offered no treatment for my brother's cancer even though there were some effective treatments. I never had contact with his staff so can't comment.

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".
Finally-a physician who listens

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.
Wonderful, 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.
Complete failure as an oncologist
Posted on September 19th, 2010
He failed to completely and accurately inform the patient of the progress of the treatment.Never informed the patient the the treatment was not working and falsely diagnosed the location of the cancer stating that he had great suspicions instead of concrete evidence like a ct- scan!!!
Efficiency 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!
Dedicated, 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.

Dr. Faig treated me in 1987/1988. He was a wonderful doctor. Very caring. I thank him from the bottom of my heart. He truly is one great Oncologist.
