Dr. Faulx is a brilliant physician and his diagnosis of my health issues have always been accurate. He is an exceptional physician-most knowledgeable and professional and listens to my concerns with genuine interest. I never have to wonder about his diagnosis; it will always be right.

Dr. Faulx has scheduled more consults with other specialists this week. He has theorized health issues and resolutions that my doctors in Columbus wouldn't even spend the time discussing or looking for to find answers and try to help me live a better life. I am grateful for Dr. Faulx's professionalism and care in looking for a way to help and diagnose my concerns when my Cardiologist wouldn't. He is willing to look outside of his specialty to help me.
