Indianapolis, IN |
I am very angry at the horrible experience I had with Dr Falender. He spent a total of 3 minutes with me and just looked at my ailment for 30 seconds without touching/examining/treating the affected areas or asking me pertinent questions such as pain I was experiencing. He told me to continue to do what I have been doing without asking me what I have been doing for this ailment! I asked a few questions, and he responded with one word answers.

Had a great experience with him. No problems. Would go to him again
Thank you for the review, Marsha.

He and his staff were very conscientious of my injury and didn't inflict any unecessary pain as i have had other Dr's grab the injury and just start moving it, putting you into that contortionists dance from the unnecessary pain. All of my appointments were quick and concise. He is very knowledgeable in his field as well. I was very satisfied in all aspects of service. Thank you.
Thank you for the review!
