Dr. Falcao was wonderfully attentive and personable. He took great care to listen to all of our concerns and truly put our minds at ease. Where other doctors sometimes make their patients feel dismissed, Dr. Falcao did an outstanding job of making our family feel heard and cared for.

I would not recommend. Have PPO insurance, no primary care referral required. Arrived early for appt. with psych eval recommending neurological evaluation. Falcao insisted on having primary care referral. Contacted general practitioner who was in process of faxing desired referral, but was informed by Falcao that because our appointment time had passed, we would have to reschedule, after waiting there 45 minutes, miss school. Falcao also wanted to charge 20% although ins pays 100%.
I am sorry for you experience. As my staff explained you when scheduling the appointment, a PCP referral is needed per our practice policy to improve communication of patient care (even if your insurance does not require). Our office also has the ability to access patients deductible and coinsurnaces for services to clarify financial responsibility up front. Your review is appreciated and will help us continue to improve communication of our office office policies upfront. Sincerely, Dr Falcao.

Apopka, FL |
We met Dr. Falcao on one of the scariest day of our lives. Our son was experiencing seizures and we had a ton of questions that seemed overwhelming. Dr. Falcao was calm and knowledgeable. He spoke to us with kindness and humor that really put our fears at bay. His office staff are so friendly and we look forward to working with Dr. Falcao and his team as partners in our sons care.

We came in with our bubbly baby daughter after our previous neurologist had mentioned she might have a "touch of autism". Dr. Falcao dispelled this within 2 minutes of seeing her. As a NICU baby who had the complications she did during pregnancy and at birth, she had significant developmental delays that greatly improved with rehabilitative therapies. Dr. Falcao understood that her delays are not related to autism and is following up on our daughter wonderfully!

Very pleased with service and personnel knowledge. Thanks :)

My 5 year old daughter was having some type of seizures and her PCP send us to one Pediatric Neurologist but I was not convinced at all, so I did a research for the best Pediatric Neurologist near me, so I found Dr. Falcao and read all of his career and all the good reviews from the last patients that he had from another country, so I decided to give him a chance, and I could not be more happier with his treat to my daughter and family. The treatment is working for her very good. Thanks.
