I thought the negative reviews for Dr. Fairbanks was very unfair. He is not outgoing and overly friendly but he is an Excellent and Knowledgeable doctor who has helped me. He does listen and he is helpful. He is even very generous with free samples. He does not spend a lot of time with small talk but I like him a lot. I had two other Urologist before him and they did not help me but Dr. Fairbanks is great. I highly recommend him.

I went to Dr. Fairbanks 11 years ago for a Vasectomy. No nurses were in the room, just him and me. He was rushed, almost like he was in a race. Turns out he messed something up because he took about an extra 20 minutes on one side. I had a lot of swelling and infection so I went back for a follow-up. He just prescribed me antibiotics and sent me on my way. I have had pain ever since for the last 11 years. I think he let the vas slip back in and then he had to go and "fish" it out. No telling what else he severed while in there, but he never seemed interested to see me again after that. I have been to a couple of other urologists since then, but there is no way to know what is causing the pain since everything "works". I ordered the notes a few years later and nothing was documented as out of the ordinary for the procedure. I just knew something was wrong from the get-go though since it took so long on one side vs. the other. Save yourself years of misery and avoid this doctor.

Recently Diagnosed with IC

I previously went to another doctor that adamantly denied the fact that I had IC. In total I have been seen by 12 doctor from all medical backgrounds and was getting no where. I went to see Dr. Fairbanks and I admit that he is a little quirky but he listened to everything that I had been through and was the first doctor to help me get some relief. Although I do not want to take medication forever, it has made me feel like myself. Dr. Fairbanks was the only doctor that believed me. His staff of nurses is nice, but there is one in particular that rubs me the wrong way every time I go there.

One Star

I wish there was a rating less than one star. Worse doctor ever. Staff was incompetent. Had to fax the information from the nursing home at least 3 times. Even once we went back to the examining room the nurse still did not know why my mother-in-law was there. No help from the nurse moving my mother-in-law from her wheel chair to the examining table and no help after the procedure was done. Left my mother-in-law alone and naked from the waist down for at least 5 minutes (no bowel control by the way). Doctor came in, performed the procedure and left without saying one word to either my mother-in-law or me. He was in the room for approx 60 seconds. The office staff was only concerned with getting our insurance information.
