About Dr. Falvello

Philosophy of care

Treatment of my patients mirrors the osteopathic philosophy of treating the patient as a whole. Considerations must be made to a patient’s physical, mental and social situations to arrive at the best course of treatment and therefore the best possible outcome.

Why I entered medicine

Humans are inherently mobile creatures. Millions of years of adaptations to our environment have given us the ability to survive in the natural world. When we can’t move well, we become sick with chronic diseases and eventually succumb. I entered medicine with an interest only in orthopedic surgery. Preserving each patient’s ability to be mobile, to move and to experience the world without pain is my ultimate goal.

Community involvement

Over the years I have been involved with or supported multiple charities in the greater Hazleton area and abroad. Some include the Hazleton Integration Project, CanDo Community Foundation, Penn State University Hazleton Campus, United Charities, the Sanfilipo Foundation, Dancing with the Delaware Stars, Pennsylvania State Police and others.

Personal interests

I like being outdoors (hunting and fishing), youth athletics, anything with an engine, food and travel.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
