I have been a patient of Dr. Jaber's for over 10 years--I trust him implicitly. My only concern is his reluctance to discuss symptoms I may experience as a result of a change in medication, or in my condition. I believe he does this to allay worries, however I am not an alarmist. And if I don't know what symptoms are concerning, how will I know when to be concerned?
