What People Say About Dr. Michael Faloon, MD

I have been a patient of Dr. Faloon's for the past 4 years, I had very painful and debilitating double curve Scoliosis. I had my first Spinal Fusion surgery in July 2015. The results have been amazing! I stood up straight for the first time in my life the day after. I went through physical therapy after and have been extremely satisfied with the results. Dr. Faloon and his staff were wonderful. In March of 2019, I had a second Spinal Fusion surgery on the lumbar area of my spine because I had Sciatica and a slipped disc. It has been 3 months now since that surgery and I feel amazing. All of the pain I had is gone and I am back to feel like myself again. I am truly grateful for Dr. Faloon, he is excellent and I recommend him to anyone I know that has an back issues.

Was in excruiating pain due to herniated disc and pinched nerve. Barely examined me, looked at mti for 2 secs and said he was referring me to his pain mgmt dr for epidural. I had to ask for a steroid dose for pain until then bc chiro had mentioned it to me, otherwise he was doing nothing. Seemed uncaring and rushed, Did not even ask any of the questions that my chiro said he would be asking.

Dr. Faloon operated on me in August 2018 I am 65 years young, I was paralyzed due to a spinal abscess, not only that I made a full recovery I am able to walk, perform daily everyday activities, and play golf. I cannot thank Dr. Faloon enough for all he did for me he is a great, caring physician! God Bless this man for giving me my life back!

Just saw Dr Faloon for a 5 year follow up. Everything is great. I cannot thank the team enough for my treatment. If I had known that he woud make my last five years better i would have gone for surgery sooner.

As I approach my 3 year anniversary of my fusion, i wanted to thank Dr.Faloon. He helped me get my life back & I am redesigning it & living it to the fullest! I moved to Oregon & started college to pursue a degree in nutrition and health sciences. This was inspired when i saw what a crucial role good nutrition & natural remedies played a role in my recovery. You should see me running up and down the stairs on campus! Add to that all the amazing outdoor adventures. Would’ve never been possible.

Very down to earth doctor. I feel as though he really listened to me and went over my MRI results so I can understand.

I've seen Dr.Faloon in the Wayne location, the office is very nice, staff was friendly. I was told i needed to bring MRI to my visit or i could not be seen. I felt the doctor diagnosed me correctly and recommended an injection. I had the injection and feel great.

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 practice.
