Biography

Brian MacFalda, D.O., M.B.A. is a neurologist who sees patients at MidMichigan Medical Centers in Midland and Mt. Pleasant. He is also the Stroke Program Director for all MidMichigan Medical Centers, working collaboratively with the stroke team and accrediting stroke agencies as well as Michigan Medicine and their providers to ensure excellent care and outcomes, reduce costs and length of stay and achieve a consistent standard of stroke care across the health system.

Philosophy of Care
“I like to partner with patients,” Dr. MacFalda said. “I don’t like to tell them what to do, but I do educate them on the disease process to help them decide what the best plan of care is for them. I’ll help steer or direct them if I feel a decision is not in their best interest, but I always want them to understand they have options. Sometimes, doing nothing is an option. It’s even okay to disagree or to fail, change your mind or try a new approach.” “The most important organ of the body is the brain. It’s the last and final frontier of medicine. We know so much about the heart, yet we are still learning so much about the brain. Fortunately advances are rapidly coming with more research and development into the brain than any other organ.”

“Hopefully in the near future we will see better treatment options for Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis than we have previously. We as neurologists can deliver perfect, compassionate care, but we currently don’t have a cure for Parkinson’s or MS. The best compliment we hear is thank you for spending time with us and listening.” Dr. McFalda also has specialized training in treating epilepsy.

“If you get someone on the right treatment plan, we can give them back their independence. We see patients with epilepsy at their most vulnerable; these treatments allow them to be better controlled and more independent with driving or holding down a job. There are surgical interventions, and for those who are good candidates, we typically see an 80 percent curative rate. This is one of the few neurology disease processes that is curative.” Dr. MacFalda is married with a son and daughter and three dogs. He and his family enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking and mountain biking. His kids are active in dance, hockey and baseball and he enjoys coaching their teams. He also enjoys golf.
