Dr Joseph Falcone is a very caring, competent, experienced, quailified, knowledgeable and compassionate surgeon. This is my second surgery handled by Dr. Falcone over a period of years but this time I had a total hip replacement and Dr. Falcone has done what I call a superb procedure. Dr. Falcone was there every step of the way, from being there before surgery and after surgery Dr. Falcone was there to make sure that I was calm and assured me that all went well. He has a wonderful personality, awesome bedside manner a true caring attitude taking the time and not rushing through appointments. Dr. Falcone has done an outstanding job and I have already referred him to many of my family members and friends that so do need his help. His office staff are wonderful. Also compassionate, caring and will go above and beyond with any questions or concerns and will get back to you asap. I am so grateful to Dr. Falcone for giving me my quality of life back again.

Dr Falcone is caring, highly competent, expertly trained and takes the time to listen to the patient. Had right and left knee replacements over a period of 2 years and could not imagine a better result. Would not hesitate for a minute to recommend someone to him - and I have!
