Chandra – May 29, 2021
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!

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.

Nancy L Alfonso – Mar 28, 2021
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.

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.
