Excellent all around
I had a problem, and had seen another dr, was given medication without a real explanation and it did not work, just messed my stomach. To me its very important to understand what I have, what causes it, and the reason for the treatment. I got all of that from Dr. Messina. I am improving and understand my issue and how to handle it.

Qualified, Respectful, and Provided great relief
Dr. Carlo Messina did an absolutely amazing job. He removed a piece of metal from my foot that was bothering me for weeks with such precision that it did not hurt at all while being removed. I knew there was something in my foot and initial examinations by others did not validate my assumption. It was an extreme relief to be validated and healed. He answered my plethora of questions and gave me some great recommendations for foot wear to protect myself in the future. Highly recommend him, his office, and his staff. I appreciate his care.

Had an initial consult with Dr. Messina in October 2020 for a painful bunion and hammertoe. Had my surgery November 2020. I felt comfortable with him performing the surgery from day one. My follow up visits were informative and he has the best bedside manner. He advised me to hat I should expect during the long recovery process. The staff is super as well and very helpful. Dr. Messina was recommended by a friend and I recommend him to everyone I know. I will be seeing him for any other podiatry issues I may have in the future!

I had two ankle surgeries with Dr. Messina and both went very well. He answered all our questions and concerns before the surgery and at checkups explained how everything was healing and how well it was going. Very good experiences no negatives.

Dr. Messina is an excellent surgeon and an absolutely wonderful doctor!! He is very thorough and truly cares about his patients. He performed bunion surgery on my right foot. He fully explained the procedure and recovery before hand and was very attentive throughout the entire recovery and physical therapy. For the first time in ten years I have two feet that look the same and, more importantly, no pain. My husband and three neighbors are also patients of Dr. Messina -- we cannot recommend him highly enough!! If you have any foot issues, do not go anywhere else.

Dr. Messina was great. Quick diagnosis- bursitis- and suggested at home treatment first and if that didn't work i could get a cortisone shot. I thought i might need a shot when i went back but didn't. Very good bedside manner and i like his conservative treatment approach. Will go back for future foot issues. Thx Dr Messina!

Dr Messina performed 2 reconstructive foot surgeries on my son David F. one in 2019 and the other in 2020. Dr Messina was very patient in explaining the surgery and what the outcome would be but more importantly the quality life my son would have post surgery. The surgery was a year apart as his foot needed to be strengthened to bear his body weight. The second surgery was a breeze he healed faster and now he has two perfect feet.
