Hard to find one of these old school doctors any more. I'm so grateful I did find him a few years ago. He has been everything I need him to be. I don't care if his office is nicely decorated. That's not why I go to a Dr.. Nor do I expect to get in to see any dr without a wait. I had drs I could get in to see quickly and they weren't worth the few minutes I waited for them. This guy is the real deal. I'm just afraid he'll work himself to death like so many of the best ones do. Hopefully all the people who are more interested in office décor and wasting some of their day will go see someone else and leave more time for those of us who are more into quality medical treatment than surroundings. I have also found his staff to be quite pleasant. I trust this Dr and , quite frankly, that is rare for me. R Cooper

Dr Falletta has Been a Wonderful Dr. He listens and make's every effort to find what is wrong. Personally for myself, he has always been very easy to talk to, and is Straight to the point without a lot of Medical language so you can understand. He Does Care about his Patients, and I am Extremely Grateful to be under his care. I would wait 2 hrs for his honesty and truth then 10 min anywhere else, to get no answers. Dr Falletta is One of the Best Dr's I have for myself and Son Ever had.
I've been a patient for over 2 years, with NO problems! Most recently I followed up with Doc.Falletta after being sexually assaulted, beaten, and burned with cigarettes. He was ABSOLUTELY the most CARING, and CONCERNED human BEING I've ever come across the entire ordeal! He made sure to document EVERY bruise, bump, burn, and the experience, and made SURE to suggest counselling and follow-up for my injuries. Some MALE doctors would be 'uncomfortable' to be so involved with this issue, and rightly so, but HE went above and beyond. As for his script practices? Well, HE is THEE most thorough and competent Doctor concerning meds and refills! He's TIMELY responding to requests, and NEVER lets anyone away with 'over-fills' or misuse. So if you need a doc to fill your 'junkie' needs, I suggest you go elsewhere. He WILL catch you and put you in your place! Thank you SINCERELY Doc. Falletta, if you read this, for your caring and compassion last week. Sincerely, Trina Cameron
Thank GOD I didn't get stuck with this doctor. He does NOT care about his patients much, it is quite obvious. 3 hours wait for a 2 min appointment. My Nana is a patient of his, in her LATE 80's and NOT at all able to care for herself, "doctor" F doesn't seem to think she needs any special care. SHE CAN'T EVEN SEE! Any caring doctor would suggest to the family that perhaps she may need a physical and perhaps a geriatric assessment. NOPE! I have so many issues with this man. The one thing that REALLY bothers me is the fact that you don't even have to see him to get a perscription, you can just call and he will set a fake appointment for you and call in your drugs. THATS AWESOME for junkies. These are MY personal experiences as I have been there for all of this, one appointment in 5 years but yet there is a steady monthy perscription for tylenol 3 for a little old lady that doesn't even have PAIN!! ????????????
I thank God every day for my being able to become a patient of Dr. Falletta's.He is NEVER on time because he's over-booked but when you do finally get called into the examination room his intelligence is certainly worth the wait.I have a lot of medical problems as does my husband and Dr. Falletta's pre-diagnosises have NEVER been wrong and he always sends us for the appropriate tests & to the appropriate specialist.We don't knowv what we'll do when he one day retires.And we live VERY close by and we're able to see that he is in his office on evenings,weekends and even when he is "off on vacation for a week" He is literally a workaholic if I've ever seen one & brialliant to boot.Wouldn't trade him for anyone.And I have NEVER seen his receptionist making personal phone calls.And she does the best job she can given the number of patients that walk thru that door & the number of calls that come in.
Whenever I have an appointment with Dr. Falletta I am left waiting minimum 1-2 hours. It literally takes your entire morning or afternoon. His receptionist and i've talked to about 3 over the years are always so rude. By the time I get in for my appointment I feel so rushed I forget why I am there. His only solution to everything is to give samples of pills, when I go back for a follow up he doesnt even remember or keep track of what he has given me. After complaining about stomach issues for about 5 years I am only referred to a specialist. Although, it sounds as if he knows what he is talking about, I just get very frusterated everytime I leave his office. I am in the process of looking for a new doctor. P.S if you go to a walk in clinic and he finds out good luck. By the time you get an appointment with Dr. Falletta whatever it is that you were suffering from is usually gone/healed. His "office" is rundown, old and falling apart. The rooms are dusty and smell. It cant be sanitary.
he is always busy but that is because he's a good doctor.I have been going to him for around 12 years and don't want another GP.He is quick and has the energy of a 17 year old.I get tired watching him go from room to room.He knows his stuff and I have several illness and he knows what is going on with all of them.I am able to get the help of other doctors in various fields that have always been polite and very proffesional as well. As far as his line being busy, of course it is, people want to see him. I push star and pay the $1.50 and am informed when a line becomes available.I've always found his receptionist to be kind and polite to me.He goes through a lot of them because it is a tough job.It will be a sad day when he retires as I doubt I'll find a doctor I trust and respect as much ever again.
He quadruples patients. Patients that I know was very ill with several health issues. Doctor said he didn't have time to cover all of it. Okay, so which debilitating problem should be covered? Why does he book so many patients if he can't handle them? He also works at a walk-in clinic. What about his own patients? No time for them, but time for a Walk-In Clinic? His secretary isn't much better. Spends WAY too much time talking on the phone to her friends. Have heard it first hand! No wonder people can't get through. She also dispenses medical advice herself! Office is an old, dilapidated house, very very dirty and small. Falletta doesn't act fast enough, doesn't return phone calls in a timely manner, referrals to specialists take way too long. Appointments take too long to get (2 weeks?) Has no hospital rights as he is retired so says his secretary. Get out of the business and go south. You're done!
