Ratings for Dr. Lourdes L. Falconi
What a cold & heartless doctor. I saw this woman for 2+ years & she pushed me into taking medication the very 1st day I saw her that put me into very early Peri-Menopause. It took over a year of my life to finally figure out what was happening on my own, as she was no help at all. When I returned to tell her of my reaction to the medication, she offered only to further drug me with a psych med. That was my last visit and I'd never return to her, even if she was the absolute last OB/GYN on earth.
Dr. Falconi answered my questions during appointments. I waited more than 30 minutes each time I went for an appointment. Appointments were rushed. During my labor, I refused pitocin and Dr. Falconi was unhappy about this, though I had strong contractions. I was threatened multiple times with a c-section if I didn't "progress" on their timeline and forced to be continuously monitored though mine and baby's vitals were perfect - the belt kept slipping with each contraction, and it had only been a few hours since I had gone into labor so there was no medical indication for c-section or pitocin. Pitocin was administered against my wishes in the third stage of labor though not medically indicated, and my support person was forced out of the room. Dr. Falconi also surprised me with an episiotomy (also unnecessary) after I refused both in writing and verbally. She had horrible aftercare and spent very little time addressing my concerns. I do not recommend her services.
I had the worst experience with this doctor. She was exteremly rude and arrogant . She took offense that I ask her questions regarding the tests she wanted me to do. I will never ever recommend her to anybody! The management should have a talk to her regarding this matter. Patients should never be treated this way!
Extremely arrogant and disrespectful to patient. I expressed reluctance to accept a treatment, and she was mad immediately without explaining to me the risk of not taking the treatment, and refused to see me anymore. What a jerk! She should have been stripped off her license!
Besides the receptionist, staff is exceedingly unfriendly. Dr. Falconi was always in a hurry and our appointments probably lasted three minutes each. Worst of all is that she totally misread the results of a test she ordered for me. I spent a week crying over this. My new doctor saw the test results and was totally baffled at why she told me what she did and is ordering a new test. I don't know why she would do this. I think she is in too much of a hurry and is really sloppy and careless. She seems friendly enough, but in my experience a terrible doctor and my new one is 1000% better.
I've been a patient for 5 years now and have always felt comfortable with her and the nursing staff. She's always on time, which is a major plus! She's seen me through 2 pregnancies and has always been a wealth of knowledge. Highly recommended!!
Dr Falconi is the most professional OB/GYN. She has an excellent bedside manner, is calm and friendly, is extremely knowledgeable, answers all questions, makes herself available when she is needed, and she is very gentle. She also gave me options rather than telling me what to do. I felt extremely comfortable during the birth of my first child and definitely recommend Dr Falconi as an OB/GYN. It is evident that she takes pride in her work and genuinely cares for the well-being of her patients.
