      I had seen Dr Messina about 9 years ago as i had ruptured my achilles and he was the one that did my diagnosis and performed the surgery, during that time and afterwards during rehab I felt very secure and that I was given the best attention. The day after the surgery he called me (Saturday evening) to see how I was doing (made me feel human and not another number.

      During quarantine, we had two boys with two broken big toes. One went to Dr. Messina while the other went to another physician in different office due to the severity of the injury. The attentiveness and care that Dr. Messina and the staff exhibited were greatly appreciated. We could not use their services for the other son since it was in final stages of healing, but would definitely use their office in the future, if it is warranted. Thank you.

      I went to see Dr. Carlo Messina for plantar fasciitis. He explained my condition, showed me some exercises to help, gave me a night splint and anti inflammatories to help with the pain. Dr. Messina is very personable, friendly, and takes the time to listen to your concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Messina if someone had medical need of his service.

      I am 14 years old and I was recently operated for correction of my bunions. Over the summer, I had surgery on my right foot and later in the fall, I had the surgery again on my left foot. I had an overall good experience and I am no longer in pain. Dr.Messina was very helpful and explained everything that would happen. The surgery was good. I went early in the morning without eating breakfast or taking a shower. I was checked and I later got anesthesia and went into the operating room. The actual procedure was quick and I was able to go home the same day with pain medicine. It may be due to my young age but I barely experienced pain both times. I only had mild pain for the first day but after that I just had to deal with walking with a boot at school. The doctor explains everything that will happen and will answer any questions. The only thing is that during the afternoon, wait times will be longer but other than that everything was great and I'm back to playing sports.

      Dr. Messina is a friendly, amazing doctor. If you have questions he will give you his honest answer/opinion. I would recommend him to anyone that has ankle problem. I met him when I hurt my ankle the first time around. I tried to let my ankle recover on it own before I said yes to surgery. It didn't recover fully. I couldn't walk without having my ankle slipping, popping and be painful. It would be swollen even when I was sitting down I literally had to give up on my active life style. I tried a shot to help but I finally said yes to the surgery. Went into surgery with Dr. Messina he did amazing work! Thank you so much! I'm back to running long distance, cycling and my strength training workouts and long distance hiking. I can wear heels again too! He did amazing work looks like I never had surgery on the outside of my ankle. Thank you again for getting me back into my active life style again!

      I highly recommend Dr. Carlo Messina and his staff. Not only is he a highly skilled doctor, he is also very caring and just a nice person! He spends whatever time is necessary to meet your needs. My mother, myself and my husband as well as several friends are his patients. Another wonderful thing they do is try to fit you in right away which when you are in pain is GREATLY appreciated! We all thank Dr. Messina and his staff for treating us so special and resolving our foot and ankle issues. Can’t say enough great things about them all. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
