Marianne is the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and manages Developmental Integrative Pediatrics.
Dr. Faber is not your conventional doctor. Instead of treating "symptoms" he looks for the underlying causes within your body that could be contributing to the actions of the child. When we go to see him it is amazing to watch his brain work right in front of you. He is brilliant and my daughter adores him!!
Dr. Faber has been the best able to best help both of my ASD kids! He is extremely knowledgeable and is willing to go the extra mile to figure out what is causing the presenting symptoms...not just trying to treat the presenting symptoms. My kids enjoy their visits with him as his bedside manner with them is fantastic. He's not afraid to be silly with them! Love him!
Most comprehensive exam ever received for my child's ailments. After numerous physicians, therapists, and treatments no one has ever in the past 3 yrs been able to rid my child's migraines. Nor offer assistance with her anxiety. In one appointment the migraines are gone. The anxiety is getting better. Grateful there is a physician who heals from the cells outward instead of the traditional treatment of only treating the outward issues.
