Carpal Tunnel Release: Quality Information

Comment from patient satisfaction survey

I would recommend Dr. Falconer to anyone I know, the care I receive is fantastic.  He’s the best!

Patient stories

Dr. Falconer and I go way back. I trust him because he knows what is going on. He is caring, kind and wants to do his best so the patient can use their wrist (or what part needs the help). I never had any worries when I saw him and knew his staff would be just as great. I highly, highly recommend any and every person to have him as your doctor and I would say you would be a lucky one. I am so glad I got to have him as my doctor, and the staff as well. Thank you for everything!

Since I started with Dr. Falconer and staff I have been treated with compassion and kindness. I tell everyone I know how well you are treated at Summit Orthopedics every time I see them for my regular appointments. I actually can’t wait for my next appointment because I know I will be happy with the final results. Thank you!
