Not once have I ever had a bad experience and my child's epilepsy is under control. Highly recommend Dr. Falcao and his practice.

Dr. Falcao is an amazing and compassionate physician. After moving here from CA & having horrible experiences with a well know children’s hospital in Los Angeles, I honestly didn’t even want to deal with neurologists. Dr. Falcao has completely changed my opinion & I am so impressed with him and his staff. They are a nice small clinic & work flawlessly together. Dr.Falcao took the time to go over my children’s EEG with me & discussed a plan for treatment. He truly took the time to make sure I understood everything. They have an online portal & make everything so much easier when you’re already stressed and worried about your child. I would recommend them 100% & can’t say enough good things about them. We found their clinic by reading the reviews on here, so I wanted to make sure I took the time to share my experience. Their office is easy to find, clean, and parking is free.

We are extremely grateful for Dr. Falcao. After seeing 5 other neurologists that couldn’t give us answers as to why our son was having seizure like episodes. Some of them even suggested that he was making it up. As a parent it was so frustrating and utterly upsetting to watch our child have episodes that were completely out of his control. Dr. Falcao took the time to observe, listen and research. He diagnosed our son with an extremely rare movement disorder called Paroxymal Kinesigenic Dyskinesia. We highly recommend Dr. Falcao. He is patient, kind and truly driven by his care for his patients. His diagnosis along with the treatment of trileptol has dramatically changed the quality of our son’s life. Our boy can actually function without having uncontrolled moments upwards of 20x a day. Finding Dr. Falcao was an answered prayer. He is a blessing and we will forever be thankful.

Dr Falco is an amazing pediatric Neurologist . He takes time to talk to you about all your concerns and issues. He talks to the littles like they are actual people instead of at them . We have been with Dr Falco for years and recommend him 100%. We live in Ormond and see home in both his offices in Oviedo as well as Daytona. If you want someone who actually cares to listen and help Dr Falco is the one.

Absolutely awesome! I worked here for a year and a half before starting my Physician Assistant program and am very happy with my time there! Dr. Falcao takes his time to ensure every patient is attended to while also going above and beyond to create an environment centered around extraordinary patient care. The staff is so welcoming and work very hard to accomplish and accommodate all the background work that goes into running a practice!
