About Me

As a neurologist at Ohio State, I specialize in taking care of patients with multiple sclerosis, demyelinating diseases of the brain and spinal cord, as well as autoimmune diseases of the brain and spinal cord.

When it comes to my care philosophy, I believe in taking the time to create a treatment plan that is a perfect custom fit for each patient. I’ve had the opportunity to treat thousands of individuals and I find it rewarding to help educate my patients and give them a better quality of life.

Here at Ohio State, we have amazing support staff who are professional with every case. My favorite part about Ohio State is that I have time to spend with each of my patients and I’m not always racing to see the next patient.

When I’m not working I like to spend time relaxing with my family, traveling, woodworking, enjoying music and playing the piano.

Excellent!!! I hope he will stay and be my doctor. He is a rare gift in his field and how trauma effects the brain & body for survivors. He held vital keys for my recovery with, MS as well as, the trauma from childhood abuse. He put me at ease to be honest and I knew I was safe in his care... a rare quality.

Dr Fallis needs to learn more about certain disorders before he declares a patient "Cured" Just because I have a shunt does not make me cured, it makes it "maintained" and telling me all I have to do is take 2 muscle relaxer pills at night and all my ills I have had for 10 years will be "cured" when don't you believe I didn't try that first!? I have tried everything drs have suggested looking for my cure. But please he needs to speak to the neurosurgeon who sent me to dr Fallis so he can be taught about my condition. Makes him look non caring, like what I have been going through is "no big deal"

He was very dismissive, I felt, of my explanations of my health issues. Didn't seem to listen to myself - evaluation.

Dr. Fallis explains things very good to me. he has trouble getting scans to show up on the computer but that was't his fault.
