The Falcon Clinic for Health, Wellness and Recovery is a primary care clinic in Utica, NY. We offer general medical care with a major focus on osteopathic principles and on prevention and treatment of behaviors that are destructive to health. We offer primary care treatment for any medical illness including hypertension, diabetes, thyroid disorders, skin diseases, stomach and intestinal problems,, neurologic disorders, and sports injuries. We also treat minor injuries, wounds and small lacerations. We do not accept Worker’s Compensation or No Fault claims.
Our staff is fully trained and licensed to provide manual treatments of acute and chronic musculoskeletal problems, including diseases such as fibromyalgia, and neck and back problems. As an osteopathic medical facility you will get an evaluation from an osteopathic physician prior to manual treatments.
Abuse or improper prescribing of antibiotics and narcotics and other addiction- prone medications has fostered an epidemic of chemical dependency and resistant bacteria. Recently, the Center for Disease Control issued a pamphlet to physicians asking them to reconsider their liberal antibiotic prescribing practices, as most infections are either viral or self-limiting. Similarly, the NYS Department of Health is monitoring and urging practitioners to limit the use of addition-prone medications including narcotics, benzodiazepines and other “controlled” substances. We agree with these efforts.
Patients coming to our practice must understand that we do not indiscriminately use antibiotics ( and especially not by phone without examining the patient). In addition, narcotics or other addiction-prone medications, such as benzodiazepines are only used short term and for specific reasons. Any long term use of these classes of medications need to be under the supervision of a psychiatrist or pain management specialist.
