Dr. Adam Falivene is an excellent and compassionate podiatrist who specializes in the treatment of all foot and ankle problems. Growing up as an athlete in Texas, he experienced firsthand how an active lifestyle can lead to issues involving your feet. As a result, he has made it his mission to help his patients feel and perform their best post-treatment.

Dr. Falivene completed his undergraduate studies at Southern Methodist University, achieving degrees in both Biology and Psychology. Following this, he attended the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, where he was awarded a Doctorate in Podiatric Medicine. Additionally, he completed a rigorous foot and ankle surgical residency at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn. He was trained by podiatric, vascular, and orthopedic surgeons to treat all lower extremities' problems. During his residency, he served as Chief Resident and volunteered for an intensive surgical mission in Guyana. He has won several awards speaking at top podiatric conferences and continues to attend and participate in leading academic seminars in the field.

Dr. Falivene currently holds a faculty position at The New York College of Podiatric Medicine, where he works as an attending podiatrist and is on staff at Metropolitan, Lincoln, and Harlem Hospitals. He performs elective and emergency surgery for these large institutions. His strong sense of community and genuine interest in helping others heal and thrive has led to positive impacts in the lives of his patients.

Dr. Falivene is board certified in Podiatric Medicine by ABPM and board qualified in Foot Surgery by ABFAS and offers a comprehensive approach to treating his patients. Through recognition of how limiting foot and ankle pain can be for those living the high speed New York City lifestyle, he provides his patients with the best treatment options upfront in order to get them back to their best as quickly as possible.



There is nothing worse than running around NYC and your feet hurt. I love helping my patients feel their best so they can be their best.
