Review for Dr. Sackman

He didn't do a thorough exam, read the chart, or look at the scan he ordered. He didn't explain anything, brushed off our concerns, nor did he answer our questions. He barely spent any time with us. Giant waste of time and money. Go to any other doctor.

Review for Dr. Falvello

I had lumbar injections by him. He used off label drugs which I specifically asked him not to. He admitted to it. I said I’d sue him. I got my medical records and that was omitted from my file. He’s sneaky and for profit with northeast rehab. He made my condition worse. Don’t go to him.
