Dr. Falakassa treated my multi-level disc degeneration. He was compassionate and honest was able to clearly explain my issues and prognosis. I changed insurance companies so I'm really disappointed that I won't be able to seek his care.

Dr. Falakassa has always listened attentively and designed his treatment of me based on my needs. I have been his patient for 5 years. He recently performed a lamenectomy & a spinal fusion, less than 3 weeks later, I am walking about a mile a day and am almost entirely off of pain meds. His staff is as wonderful as he is and all of the hospital staff had nothing but praise and respect for him.

This doctor is exceptional. He took the time to review my records in detail and explained the reasons behind his decisions. He made me feel very safe and I trust him completely. I am so glad I went to Dr Falakassa for a second opinion. The staff was also great. I have recommended my family as him as well and they all had a similar positive experience.
