I strongly urge anyone who values their time to avoid this practice and Dr. Falco. Poor doesn't even begin to describe the way Dr. Falco disrespects his patients. I waited 3 hours and 50 minutes (11:00 a.m. appointment, left at 2:50 p.m.), and had to leave due to other commitments before seeing the doctor. On my way out, he had the nerve to ask if I wanted to reschedule. I informed him that I'm never coming back. I asked the staff about my wait time, and was told it was typical.

Listens to what I have to say, and truly cares about my well being. Fantastic bedside manor. Answers all my questions and goes as far as sitting right beside me with his laptop to show and explain a procedure to me that he feels will give me a better quality of life. Wonderful caring man.

DON"T GO!!!! Worst experience EVER!!! Extremely unprofessional staff. Waited nearly 3 hours for a scheduled new patient appointment, that I arrived over 45 minutes early for. After checking in with his staff several times, and being told the Dr. would see me shortly, I finally got up out of the exam room and advised I was leaving, and asked for my co-pay and medical records back, Dr. Falco went completely FREAKO and came after me in his completely packed waiting room, hovering over me!

The wait, admittedly, is often very long and it takes a toll if you're in pain. But Dr. Falco is the best pain physician I've ever known. My pain is under control for the first time in five years. He doesn't just drug you up, like so many others. He listens, he matches you with the best medicine. If you want drugs, go to a pill mill. If you want treatment, he's the go to.

Be ready to make it a day. My last appointment I was there for 6 HRS! Then after the wait you don't get to see Dr.Falco unless you specifically ask to see him. You will see the PA or one of his associates. Dr. Falco is very good doctor. Falco has great bedside manner but I hope he does something about the wait.
