She is one of the best doctors I have had the pleasure to work with. I don’t usually leave reviews, and when I do I am a nit picker. You can stop looking for options. She is the one you want.

Review for Dr. Faltys

Resorts to surgery as a last resort. Treated my right knee a few years back. Recommended trying a brace to see if that would work instead of knee replacement. Works fine. Everyone at the center is very professional and friendly. I have used this center since 2005 and very satisfied.

Review for Dr. Dugas

doc was great. Office was efficient and his PA was terrific. He wasn’t quick to surgery and recommended I wait longer before I pursue surgery on my shoulder. This tells me that when he does recommend surgery it is a last resort. Very happy with him.

Review for Dr. Dugas

His bed side manner is awful. He's weird, not personable. My appointment was super quick and getting much information out of him was like pulling teeth.
