    Dr. Falvello did right anterior hip replacement April 2016 and left anterior hip replacement May 2017. Dr Falvello did an awesome job both surgeries went great. He is a caring doctor and he and all the staff very helpful. Would recommend him doing surgery to anyone who needs it. Never waited more than 10 minutes for an appointment.

    Was scheduled for anterior hip replacement...had 2 month wait... during last 3 weeks, I went to Allentown for EKG/blood work and family Doctor for medical approval. At pre-op visit, day before surgery,Falvello said he could not do anterior surgery as it was "too risky" and he had had "problems" with surgery. When asked, he said he had decided a "month ago" not to do. Then why did he not inform me earlier?? I wasted much time and money for nothing! Some staff rude, office in Pittston not revealed

    Visited Doctor Falvello for a previous spinal surgery. Overall his attention to just my case was amazing. He has a drive to help every patient as though you are his family. I have referred numerous family members to Doctor and ALL have had great turnouts. I would recommend EVERYONE to see him.
