Biography

Philosophy of Care

"My philosophy is to treat people the way I would want for my family to be treated: With respect and honesty. I prefer to involve my patient in the decision-making process so that I am treating them with more effective, individualized care. I make a conscious effort to have an excellent bedside manner, while acting as a Christian surgeon."

Personal

Dr. Falcone grew up on a family farm in the small town of Silver Creek, New York that produces grapes for Welch Foods and beans for Birds Eye Foods. Watching as close family member's struggled with cancer led him into a career in medicine.

His wife, Trasey is also a Owensboro Health provider and is a Kentucky native. They have three children, Gianna May, Joseph Donald (JD), and Rosemary June. They also have an Italian Mastiff named Pearl.

While music is his favorite hobby, he also enjoys woodworking and playing/coaching ice hockey.

A patient's message

Read messages sent to Dr. Falcone on National Doctors' Day.

"Thank you for being such a kind, caring provider. Have and will continue to recommend you to anyone needing a surgeon!" - Arnold

"It’s been a few years since my encounter with you, but I will still ALWAYS remember you. I wasn’t able to recover from a c-section, and after 9 months of OB and wound center visits, you listened, helped and most of all healed me (all on the first visit). I know I wouldn’t have been able to heal on my own without the surgery you gave me. I may joke with family and friends that you “saved my life”, but you truly did! I am now able to interact with my kids and have a happy life. My husband and I can’t thank you enough for listening! You made an impact on my families life and I will always remember you and recommend you to others. It’s doctors like you that make your patients know you really care and I am forever grateful. Thank you, Dr. Falcone!" - Marlee
