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.

personal phone call from wife 4 x's

Dr Fallis has been amazing, since I contacted the head of Neurology. He called me directly a few times and emailed me before our 1st meeting, never had a doctor do that. He made me feel good about my care, and he was confident in helping find the best care for my MS.

Dr. Fallis is very easy to talk with - good exam. Does not seem to be in a hurry to see next person - takes his time with you.

I was dismayed that the doctor took a cell phone call from an unrecognized number during my visit. This behavior is unprofessional.
