Ratings for Dr. Jason Faller
I always felt rushed with Dr. Faller, who rarely spent more than 5 minutes with me each time. One time when I had to be about 30-minute late for my appointment, because of an emergency, I called his office to give them a heads-up, but the staff told me that the doctor could not see me that day if I came in later than the appointment time, and given that I could not show up punctually, I had to pay a $75.00 'no-show' fee! The fact of the matter is, when I was punctual for my all my past appointments, I always had to wait there for at least 15 minutes in order to be seen by Dr. Faller for 3 minutes or so. I don't understand why my having to be late that specific day should equal a 'no-show'.
Horrible doctor. He did not even look at my blood test results and told me I have lupus. He said it he doesn't have to be genius to figure it out without test and prescribed me to heavy medications. He told me I will get skin cancer if I expose myself to sun. I went back to my GP and did more tests and there is no sign of Ra or Lupus. still trying to figure it out.
The office staff was very pleasant and welcoming. Dr. Faller was very punctual and did not rush me along like most doctors in the city. He patiently answered all of the questions that I had while most other doctors would not want to spend the time. He prescribed a new medication than I was currently taking and it is working 10x better. The medication is new which means that he really spends the time to do his research. I will definitely go back to Dr. Faller in the future and recommend him to friends and family!
Dr. Faller is one of the most compassionate and caring doctors I have ever visited. He is brilliant, thorough in his exam, and was accurate in his diagnosis. After speaking with him I had great peace of mind from his reassuring approach. His office staff is bustling, efficient and extremely helpful and accomodating. Dr. Faller has admirable character traits and I would highly recommend him.
Had a HORRIBLE Experience with this doctor. After running a blood test on me I called for results and he said I have Lupus. Went to another doctor who called him very unprofessional for diagnosis a disease that requires more than an ANA very low positive result. Scary to know he is practicing medicine!!!! Wouldn't reccommend him to my worst enemy to be blunt!
dr. faller did next to zero intake exam. he accepted the questionable diagnosis i came with at face value rather than investigating or confirming it for himself. then he prescribed some hardcore medication for it, not even weaning me onto it slowly like the doctor i currently see did. when i called to get my blood test results he didn't even remember having prescribed this medication. i would not trust him with my health.
after years of pain and frustration, a battery of tests, and visits with 4 physicians, none could solve the mystery. then i was referred to dr. faller. he diagnosed fibromyalgia and talked me through some of the ongoing treatments and medication within mainstream and alternative medicine. 16 years later he is still my rheumatologist and primary care physician. he is well read on the latest in medical research, and is what i want in a doctor i.e. someone who is always learning, acquiring information about developments in medicine, research and alternative therapies. that's integrated medicine at its best. i've found him to be intelligent, articulate, direct, polite and willing to answer my questions, so i never leave his office in the dark about a condition or treatment. i referred a friend, who's a registered nurse, and she was very pleased with the results. he's always been "right on" with his diagnoses, and i've never been sent down the wrong road with the recommended treatment.
