Dr. George Fallieras
Dr. George N. Fallieras comes from a family of physicians. Dr. Fallieras grew up in Tampa, Florida, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Florida. He obtained his M.D. from the University of Tennessee, and did his residency training in New Orleans at the Tulane Health Science Center/Charity Hospital. Dr. Fallieras is double board certified in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. He has extensive emergency room, hospital inpatient, ICU, inpatient and outpatient detoxification, and outpatient recovery experience. He has served as the Medical Director for multiple large Inpatient Hospitalist programs. He is passionate about international medicine and serves on twice yearly missions trips to rural Dominican Republic and Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Dr. Fallieras has served as expert commentary on multiple news, television, and radio outlets.
Dr. Fallieras has always taken a keen interest in addiction medicine, in particular alcohol and opiate abuse. He has provided care to countless alcoholic and addicted patients in the acute hospital setting. He has seen innumerable cases of suffering individuals literally drinking themselves to death. With dread, he has made those difficult calls to parents notifying them of their child’s overdose and death. He has witnessed the profound physical and emotional burden that alcohol and drug abuse inflicts upon the individual and their families. He has seen the disappointment and shame in the eyes of very good and determined individuals who desperately want to quit drinking but are held down by the firm grasp of addiction. Like most people, he has first-hand knowledge of family members and loved ones who have endured this common struggle.
As a medical director for BioCorRx, he has established ethical and effective protocols. He believes addiction is a chronic “brain disease” and requires comprehensive treatment including physical and laboratory evaluation, vitamin and nutrient repletion, nutritional support, safe and comfortable detoxification, medications to eliminate or reduce cravings, psychological attention, emotional regulation, behavioral modification to identify/address/avoid/extinguish triggers, and long-term attention and surveillance (group setting and support most effective).
