One if the best doctors I have ever seen. Her bedside manner is wonderful.. She makes you feel relaxed. Very personable. I would recommend. That is my personal opinion.
in Buffalo, NY |
Dr. Falkner was AMAZING through my pregnancy. It was my first pregnancy so I always asked a ton of dumb questions.. She was very good at explaining any concerns WITHOUT medical terms to make them easy to understand. She always walked in the room with a huge smile and warm greeting. If she was having a bad day, You could never tell! Very easy to talk to, and just a great doctor overall.
in Buffalo, NY |
Dr. Falkner is an amazing doctor! She LISTENS, she is caring, she explains everything really well and she is very down to earth and easy to talk to. I always feel very comfortable with her. She takes my concerns serious and doesn't make me feel rushed. I would definitely recommend her!

Agree that Dr. Falkner is not a VBAC friendly provider. Bait and switch. Was also extremely insensitive during my miscarriage.
in Depew , NY |
Dr. Falkner is wonderful! Very personable and compassionate. She met with me to discuss my difficult history for over an hour and was very empathetic. And although I wasn't due for an annual anytime soon she called me just to check in and see how I was doing, much appreciated! My prior OB never contacted me or discussed my multiple miscarriages or ever asked how I was doing, very impressed!
Buffalo, NY |
Dr. Falkner is NOT a vbac-friendly physician. The experience I had and the policies she espoused changed dramatically from the time that I first consulted with her until the time I delivered. Suddenly there were evidence-based practices she would not allow me to do, and she manipulated me out of choices that were mine to make with outdated information. Two years later I am still recovering from the trauma of this experience and the way her disrespect overshadowed my son's birth.
in Orchard Park, NY |
She is very personable, informative, through and very, very nice. I was called in promptly and didn't feel the least bit rushed. . I would recommend her to anyone.
