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.

Dr. Falcao is amazing! I highly recommend him for your child. Very glad to have the opportunity to have both my boys be treated by him. I was a scared mom with a 2 year old that had 7 seizures in 24 hours....scary! Then a year later I had a 7 year old seizing on a soccer field. Every experience with Dr. Falcao has been positive! He always spoke to me in a way I could understand. Iam very sad to see him leave, but wish him well in his new adventure. Thank you for everything you did for our family
