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!

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.
