He was very straight forward and knowledgeable, however he very quickly glossed over my particular issue and pushed forsurgery (a last resort) instead of discussing other solutions. The entire waiting area seemed to have ‘repeat’ customers feeling. It made me feel as if I was in my way to becoming a consistent visitor instead of getting a problem solved. It was my first and only visit, but the place seemed very busy and his familiarity with the other patients made me worry. It wasn’t the friendliness, that it always appreciated. It was the idea that he was building a clientele that always needed him instead of coming through with lasting solutions to seemingly common foot issue. Foot surgery can have long lasting impact and the discussion of success rates never happened.

As a new patient, I had to wait nearly 1 1/2 hrs before being called and then another 20+ minutes in the room. However, for most of this time the doctor was making sure a prior patient understood his directions. Most likely the initial wait was due to making time to evaluate me and my treatment,. Scheduling should be in recognizing this more time needed. Don't know where the fault lies, so to speak. HOWEVER in the room with the doc, he was extremely pleasant, knowledhgable, and reviewed how the conditions I went to the doc for affected my other serious conditions, and how they affected, in return, my conditions to be treated by Dr Falcone. Hearing the explanations, the initial wait that almost had me leave the appointment was forgotten and am extremely happy I stayed. Even after this 1 visit, I am deeply impressed and would recommend this doctor to those needing podiatry medical doctor.

The wait to see this doctor was brutal. Two loud young kids running around, screaming and I waited for 2 hours to see him. Also, although it was confirmed through Zocdoc that my appointment was made, the office didn't have the appointment when I went to check in. So you might want to call in advance to confirm. The front desk is very slow at all they do, too. Doctor was nice enough, although he kept pressing down on my tender toe to explain the diagnosis which wasn't necessary and it hurt when he was explaining (although not as much before he did the procedure.)

What a great Doctor! I normally do not write reviews unless it was a horrid experience, however, Dr. Falcone was stellar! He was so kind and helpful. He knew exactly where the pain was and how to fix it quick. I have never had such a pleasant visit to any doctor. The two girls with the dark hair where also so sweet and kind and very helpful. One of the girls saw I was limping due to my sprained ankle and she went above and beyond to be helpful. Truly a pleasant experence. Thank you Dr. Falcone and girls! :)

I've seen him before. He's nice enough there's always a bit of harmless flirting on his side but that's about it. Really explains to you what is going on with your feet. Usually takes about an hour to see you. Last time I went it was even longer so I had to leave without seeing the doctor, the receptionist got mad at me for trying to rush the doctor. I don't understand why he books more than one patient in the same time slot. Won't be returning

It was my first visit to doctor Ovidio Falcone so I arrived 15 minutes before my appointment so I've had to wait in the waiting room for over two hours to be seen. My son was tired and frustrated cause the waiting time, the office staff were attentive and helpful. Finally after waiting all this time for doctor Falcone he just took a few minutes of his time and the visit felt rushed very disappointed

Dr. Falcone is fantastic! I was a bit traumatized by what happened to my foot, but he was extremely patient, kind, and very thoroughly explained everything to me so that I undertood and felt comfortable. I read lots of reviews about him and his staff and many had poor things to say about the front desk staff. After vey first appointment I completely understand why, but Dr. Falcone is worth the less than pleasant waiting room experience. I went for a great doctor, not a great wait. Dr. Falcone is a great doctor.

The office was very crowded because multiple doctors are in that office. It seemed like Dr. Falcone was over booked because I had to wait almost 2 hours until being seen and it would have been longer if the people in front of me hadn't left. He was good but I'm not sure it was worth waiting that long plus the people breast feeding in the waiting area. He did answer all my questions and was very knowledgable and took immediate action with what was wrong with my foot. I do have to do a repeat visit with him so I'm hoping it will be faster the next time.

I was a tad disconcerted by the state of the lobby while waiting but once I was called was professionally guided through the process even the snags I met along the way. While one might have been aggravated by the amount of obstacles encountered I was actually refreshed at the lengths at which people at this practice facilitated me for the purpose of examining my injury and givinge guidance. I was impressed even if the process wound up taking for longer than I expected.
