By the time that I left Dr. Messina’s office on my first visit I was already feeling less ankle pain with the help of the brace that he had recommended.

Highly professional and caring. This was a refreshing experience given the dismissive nature of many podiatrist and orthopedic physicians that either seem rushed or inattentive to non-surgical related issues.

I had the good fortune to select Dr. Messina to repair my fractured ankle in April of 2011. He performed the surgery which required the use of a metal plate, and 5 screws to stabilize the ankle. He was straightforward with regard to the diagnosis, surgery, and recovery, letting me know exactly what to expect. Recovery was slow, as was anticipated, involving considerable physical therapy to regain my full range of motion following removal of the cast. I was able to regain full mobility of the ankle, and to date, have not had a single issue regarding this injury. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Messina to anyone seeking the services of a foot and ankle surgeon.

When it comes to your kids you want the very best so when my daughter, Madison had a lisfranc tear and needed surgery I couldn't have picked a more professional compassionate orthopedic surgeon and thank goodness I chose Dr. Messina because she's had such a tremendous recovery. We are truly grateful we found him and couldn't be happier with the results!

Dr Messina knew exactly what was going on when I showed him the painful bump in my arch (now I know it is a plantar fibroma). A quick cortisone shot and the bump was reduced in size and the pain was gone later that same day. I was out playing tennis the next day. It feels so good I forgot about my follow up! Good thing they called to remind me

Patients be aware that this office overcharges and once they take your money, there is no way that you can get that fixed easily. They charged me for a boot that according to my insurance (AETNA) it should had been covered by the insurance if they had submitted the claim properly. I spoke to Carolina who is in charge of billing twice, AETNA also left several messages to her indicating that she needs to resubmit the claim with the right code for the boot but she has not resubmitted the claim.

Dr. Messina has been excellent. He did my bunion surgery. I don't even live in the area but I drove to Weston just to see him because of his reputation. He also did my daughter's foot surgery. He is attentive, very personable, and really takes the time to make sure you feel taken care of. His assistant Elayne is awesome as well. And...No scar.
