His bedside manner left something to be desired. He doesn't show you what he is seeing when he reviews the imaging tests he ordered for you. Compared to other orthos - he plain sucked and was a waist of my time. In bad weather, he asked me to drive from one location to another 25 minutes away.

Dr. Faloon and his office were exceptional. From the time I walked in to the time I left I felt very comfortable knowing I was in good hands. He explained everything to me and thankfully he thinks I can wait a while until any surgical procedure is necessary. I am so grateful to have found this...more
