Carolina Care Highlight: Dr. Ronald J. Falk

Our Carolina Care Highlight this week recognizes Dr. Ronald J. Falk, director of the UNC Kidney Center and chair of the Department of Medicine. Here's what one of Dr. Falk's patients had to say: "Dr. Falk and his associate physician were both excellent - friendly, compassionate, and explained things in a manner we could easily understand. We felt like we not just "another case" to them but rather people who mattered to them, who they truly wanted to help with these health issues..."

"...Dr. Falk also took time to chat with us about the emotional impacts this disease can have on us and our family - literally the first time that has occurred during this medical journey of several months to numerous specialists and GP's- and it was most appreciated. As my spouse said "Dr. Falk has given us more answers without us having to ask a question than we have received by asking questions at all the other doctors..." He is that (unfortunately) rare physician that excels both technically AND interpersonally. It is also evident that he leads his staff by example, setting the tone for excellent patient service and interaction.”

Our patients often provide comments about their providers when completing their Press Ganey patient experience survey. While you can always review comments at UNC Health Care's Find-a-Doctor website, we will highlight a few of the best comments every two weeks.
