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"...more

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.
