I broke my fibula not so long ago and the doctor immediately took very good care of it. He provided good tips and care which allowed me to recover quite fast.

Dr. Messina is the best! Knowledgeable, personable and all around great doctor and person. He helped me and my family when we needed it. He did surgery on my foot and I was good as new almost right away. He saw my daughter and immediately knew how to help her.

Dr Messina best orthopedic surgeon
Dr Messina is excellent, very professional, always smiling. He likes his patients. I could not ask for a better Doctor. His staff is exceptional. I was so scared before my surgery but after my visit which is my consultation, my fear was gone. Bunion surgery can be very painful but I was almost pain free. He is the best.

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.
