  • I was hurt at work and was told to see him. He only saw me for a total of 5 minutes for each appointment. He gave me samples (amount to cover 3-4 days) of an anti-inflammatory med BUT never indicated that this was a new drug. Information about obtaining additional medication was incorrect and needed to call his office for additional medication He prescribed another medication, not the original one; something which he did not know when seen a second time. Does he not read the medical notes in my chart before seeing patients? Second appointment garnered less than 5 minutes of his time. His displeasure at my having notes for questions was immediately apparent. Breezed in and out. He recommended a knee brace ONLY after I came in with one for the second appointment. His demeanor throughout was uncaring and unprofessional and uninformed of my current medication prescribed by him. I had asked for a few days off to give me knee a chance to heal as my job is rather physical and involves lifting heavy items and prolonged instances of standing and walking. His reply was "We don't do that." To me, his reply implied that there was a "policy" about giving time off under workman's comp. I advise seeing another orthopedic who may actually care about his patients well-being and care, and who spends time actually listening to their concerns.

  • His office asst is nasty, unfriendly & unprofessional. After being injured in a car accident, she denied me an appt for 5 weeks & wouldnt even put me on cancellation list. So many unnecessary arguments with her. However the young girls in the office were always kind & helpful. Dr Falkenstein used to listen to my concerns, but after this accident I was in, he wasn’t the same guy. Tried to tell him I had concussion, a thyroid issue, neck & back injury but he fluffed it off. Got diagnosed many months later elsewhere by other doctors for all of those things. I took it upon myself to see a specialist who would help with injuries (do injections, nerve block) & Dr. Falkensteins immediate response was to stop treating me with meds for pain so cut me off with no notice (but his office lady lied & tried to tell me he gave me notice). I went 5 weeks in the most horrific pain & not being able to get out of bed due to the car accident until I could get a pain management doctor to take over. My specialists said any office asst who refused me an appt after car accident injuries & a doctor who missed many important diagnosis’s let alone left me in such horrible pain refusing to continue treating me until pain mgmt could take over were not worth going back to & urged me to find a much better doctor who cared about my well being.

  • My son attended this preschool for a few weeks. We were told by the teachers and director that he was struggling in their PM class, and asked us to move him to the AM class, which did not work for our schedule. When we informed them that we could not move him to the AM class, they threw our son out of the class rather than put in the work to try and get him up to speed. This blew up our childcare plans and obviously upset my son. We were shocked to see a group of educators completely give up on a child as they did in our case.

  • I was referred to this man by my cousin, who is also a physician. I was told that he was one of the best in Pittsburgh, so I overlooked his immediate demeaning attitude because I was more concerned about the level of his skills than I was about his bedside manner. Big mistake! I had a total hip replacement by him in 2013 and here we are, 4 years later, and I'm still using a cane in order to walk with some degree of normalcy. Without the cane, I have a severe limp (called Trendelenburg Gait). After 1 year had passed since the surgery, Crossett finally recognized that there was a problem, given how severely I limped. In fact, he said, “that's one of the worst limps I've ever seen.” Instead of ordering additional diagnostics, other than an x-ray, he simply ordered more physical therapy. I had already gone through 6 months of formal PT. Regardless, I did another 4 months of PT and still had no improvement. I endured his arrogance and lack of professionalism for over 1 1/2 years and decided that it was time to seek another opinion. I found a surgeon at Magee Hospital who explained that the surgical approach that Crossett uses (lateral approach, going in from the side of the hip area) can result in issues with the muscles because they are cut. The new surgeon immediately ordered an MRI and, lo and behold, it revealed that I had a torn and detached gluteus medius. This is the muscle on the side of the hip that controls one's gait. My new surgeon attempted a revision. The results were good and bad: Good because he was able to reattach the muscle; bad because since the muscle had been inactive for over a year, it had atrophied. I will be using a cane for the rest of my life! Please learn from my mistake and go with your initial gut instincts about whomever you select to perform your surgery. I was turned off by this man from my first appointment, but I decided to hang in there. Crossett was arrogant, narcissistic and down-right rude from the beginning. Had I listened to my inner voice, I would not have walked out of his office – I would have run out!

  • I went to him because I was having a lot of back pain and he pulled up a stool and asked "What could I do for ya?" Like I was in an auto shop. I asked if he looked at my x-rays and he said yeah. He pulled up my x-rays and said there is a crack here and here and here and probably up here too. He said he would recommend therapy and I asked what that was going to do he said it would strengthen the muscles of the back. I could give you a brace, I was not sure if I wanted a brace. So he replied  "Do you want a brace or not?" I heard of other things that could be done but all he offered was to cement the bone together. He had no good bed side manner or showed any concern for me or my situation. I felt like he just wanted to brush me off. I called 3 days later and asked where my disk of my x-rays was it was not given back to me He was rude and said there were signs all over about asking to get your disk back. He still has not sent me my disk back yet. They always ask if you fell the first thing when you walk in. They guy that tried to fit me with the brace was not nice. He did not treat me.

  • I was hesitant to employ the services of a chiropractor for some time, but I am very pleased with my choice of Manning Chiro. Treatment is ongoing and provides relief through both spinal adjustments and soft-tissue therapy. Dr. Manning explains the process and techniques clearly and ensures your comfort through each step. The entire staff is friendly and accomodating, and the message therapist (Nicole) rocks, both literally and figuratively. Highly recommended, for two and four legged patients alike.

  • I had a right hip replacement in December 2006 at Magee Hospital. I knew something was wrong the first moment I stepped out of the hospital bed! I experienced difficulty walking and standing, and also with pain, from the very beginning. When I repeatedly complained to the doctor about a leg length discrepancy, he told me it was all in my head. Eventually, his office refused to give me any further appointments. Within months after surgery, my home care nurse applied for a "permanently handicapped" placard for me. Physical therapy became an exercise in futility, as I went from one therapist to another. Finally, at the suggestion of one physical therapist, I went to Cleveland Clinic where I underwent extensive testing. I was told that "this was one (DiGioia) mess they couldn't fix." The years have taken their toll on my spine, as well as the rest of my body. Fast forward to 2017. Due to recent "hip recalls," I was contacted by an attorney that I had consulted with back in 2006. It was necessary for me to contact DiGioia's office to obtain information regarding the hip implant, and I was able to schedule an appointment. When I got there, I was told I had no appointmnt. After my refusal to leave, I was seen by a nurse practitioner and the matter at hand got resolved. The fact remains, however, that my life changed drastically following the hip replacement, and I continue to live with pain on a daily basis as I rely on my cane and walker to get aound.

  • It was a very good experience. Everyone was very nice from the office staff to the doctor. The doctor took his time to explain the problem and to explain the treatment plan. I am 95% pain free with a conservative treatment plan. I have recommended this doctor to a couple of my friends.

  • Dr. Bosta is wonderful! He is caring, compassionate and the absolute best foot doctor. He took time with myself and my family, who also see him as a doctor. He has experience that translates into so much knowledge that he has been able to help all of us. He does it with the most concern and positivity for all of his patients. Best doctor!
