What People Say About Dr. Marc Fallah, MD

Shoots for 3-5 minute slot for your appointment. Did not read files before appointment. Beats around the bush, rolls eyes and shakes head when asking simple questions, like your health is an inconvenience. No personality. His About Me- "Care Philosophy" Stating "I believe in treating my patients as I would treat a close friend or family member. Caring for patients is my life long goal". Is completely inaccurate<-- Felt the complete opposite from this Doctor. DO NOT PUT YOUR HEALTH IN THIS PERSONS HANDS.

Dr. Fallah is a very personable and intelligent physician who establishes an almost immediate connection with, and sense of confidence in his new patients. His personal warmth and friendliness help to dispel any nervous feelings a patient might have in meeting a new doctor for the first time. I felt very relaxed with him soon after ee met.

Went for a check up on my crohns disease, need a new doctor since mine retired. I chose to use the same medical group since they should have all of records. This doctor didn't even look at my file and I was told I have never been seen there. He called for a ct scan and if he would have let me finish a sentence he would have known that I had multiple in the past which never reveled inflammation. I asked about pain management and he implied I was there for narcotics. DO NOT GO SEE THIS GUY!

No bedside manner. Total lack of interest in my illness. No follow up. Nurse/assistant was outrageous to deal with. Ignored side effects from my treatment. Find someone else. Saw me for five minutes once. Never asked to see me again. A few phone calls was it. Unexceptable treatment.

When I started with prusistis and the rifampin made me jaundice this doctor said that I should go on the transplant list because there was only one other drug that I could try for the itchiness. He sacred the begees out of me as I was only in stage one. I saw another doctor for a second opinion And he totally disagreed with Dr Fallah. Needless to say Dr Fallah is no longer my doctor. I did not like his bedside manner.

His communication was poor. He didn't listen to what I thought I was important about my disease. He was very slow to change my medicine regimen.

I went in for an initial consultation and once I go to see the Dr, he handed me some paperwork with information about my condition and told me to speak to the nurse to schedule a biopsy. He must've thought that was all I needed and started to leave! So I had to bombard him with questions to get some basic information. After an ackward exchange, he told me to make my next appointment. Ti think I waited two months for this doctor's care. No thanks

I had scheduled two tests with the Dr. One week before the tests his office or the hospital asked if I could change to one hour earlier as they had a cancellation. I said I couldn't as my transport had already changed their schedules. I arrived early for the 2pm tests and was rushed through the process,checking in etc. He apparently thought I was an hour late and was quite upset. As his patient I was very uncomfortable having him perform any tests on me at that point but was too late to cancel.
