What People Say About Dr. James Falko, MD

I was referred to Dr. Falko. My diabetes had been out of control for years and my former doctors in another state couldn't find the mix of meds. When I moved to CO and went to him he went the extra mile to do the tests to start on a better path. For the last 5 years my numbers have been the best in my life and feel the best I have in years. He has also treated my thyroid and has done a wonderful job. Excellent doctor.

Discovering Dr. Falko was like finding a treasure. He is experienced, and has a wonderful attitude making you feel immediately at ease. He changed my medication for treatment of diabetes, and I had good results right away. Also was able to lose 40 pounds which helped my glucose readings. Highly recommend this Doctor!

After being a patient of Dr. Falko and having thyroid issues, in my opinion he IS NOT willing to try new medications or ideas which could better ones health. *He is also unwilling to refer patients to other care providers which is NOT putting the patients health concerns first. If you have weight gain issues with the thyroid condition, he will tell you to count calories rather than switch medications or try something new!

I was referred to Dr. Falko by an outstanding doctor in the Anschutz system. I had been on thyroid medication for a low thyroid and it did nothing. Dr. Falko did not digest what I was trying to tell him. He put me back on the same medication. He also felt it necessary during the exam to grab my "little spare tire" THREE TIMES. Told me the medications would get rid of it. I was mortified!!!

Dr. Falko was running behind, but he apologized upon entering the room & took to reviewing my records immediately. After he felt he understood my concerns, he also asked me to be certain we were on the same page. We talked through my concerns, and he answered my questions. He was very relatable, patient, easy to communicate with & made me feel very comfortable; even advising me as if I were his family saying, "...if you were my daughter this is what I'd recommend". Great doc! Highly recommend.
