Ratings for Dr. Joseph M. Failla
Regarding office: surprised hand/upper extremity surgeon office would not have automatic doors. All doors open where you could hear each patients complete history-lack of privacy compliance. Doctor walked right from room across the hall into our room and did not walk hands before exam. Doctor did not wish to read referral info from doctor previously seen, but decided that he knew the problem. Also did not want to view prior MRI reports. Procedure did not go as planned and doctor seemed put out by it although I was willing to continue working with him. Discussed possible surgery which he said could be done in office. Next visit he said I would have to find another doctor fir surgery, but gave no referrals. Office notes made no mention of MRI findings, only his opinion-which conflicted with MRI reports. Finally found a doctor who took the time to review MRI and was very confused By Dr. Failla's office notes and diagnosis. It is important to have a doctor who is patient and listens.
Dr. Failla is too busy and shows it. He is too busy to even pretend that he cares. His "trying to hide his impatience," shows, at least to me. Office staff kind. I find him to be "untrustworthy," as a result. I just can not hire him to operate on me. Something isn't right.
Perhaps the most talented hand surgeon in the Midwest, Dr. Failla not only is highly skilled but he also is a charming, genuinely warm person who makes his patients feel like they come first. He has a slew of credentials, continues to teach and stays on top of cutting edge developments in his field. If you have any type of hand issue, this is the person to see.
