What People Say About Dr. Christian Piccolo, MD

Had over a good year with the dr. Until secretary discussed my medication regime in the waiting room in front of other patients. Very unprofessional! Upon complaining to dr my prescriptions were then written differently to the point of sometimes not being able to be filled. Every month there after the was some discrepancy, lesser amounts of medication, prescriptions written for headache? I checked no headache on my pre visit form for over a year. There was something for me to address with him every month. I was told I complained too much and to find another dr. When I said my complaints stemmed from the prescription variations he basically grasped for words, and informed me my insurance was terrible also.I was treated horribly in this matter and trust me there is more to come other than a bad review.

He has been treating me for severe back pain for over a year. He is very quick to want to do all types of injections. I was extremely happy with him until I asked him to fill out a form for disability. He turned into a completely different Dr, he was extremely condescending and rude and even laughed. I left the office and cried in my car because he treated me so badly. Look elsewhere for a Dr that will respect you and take your pain seriously

At the first appointment the doctor was very dismissive, barely listened to me let alone helped. Went to make follow up appointment forgot to write it down called for 3 weeks with no call back, finally got someone on the phone for them to tell me I missed my appointment. Extremely rude and unprofessional staff which would turn anyone away from the office since you have to go through them to get to the doctor

As I have seen this doc more than once, my trust is taking a nose dive. He is very ambiguous and never seems to give much of an opinion. I can’t seem to get him to give any recommendations or a clear answer that meds are the only option I have. At my last visit I explained that my new neurologist is putting me on CYMBALTA. Piccolo then tells me it’s the best med for fibromyalgia! If he knows that shouldn’t he have put me on it! Don’t waste your time with this one.

Dr Piccolo is an excellent Dr. and a fine gentleman. He takes the time to explain and recommend treatment, politely and in depth. His office staff prompt and courteous. If you need pain management, go to him hands down. Nick Saliveros, patient.

My biggest fault was to tell Dr. Piccolo that I was an MD. He told me that I need Insurance approval and that his staff was going to take care of that. I wait and wait with my pain and two weeks later I call and they have not even looked at my file and offered to see me more than one month away. His staff told me they do no use e-mail...WOW Either he is busy or he did not want to see me again In conclusion he is trowing roadblocks to start the process of radiofrequency ablation Tx.

A great experience. Dr. Piccolo is personable, knowledgeable and explains everything thoroughly. Even more importantly, his treatments have worked ! Staff is awesome and office is immaculately clean. Appointments are booked far into future, but that's because of the demand. Call and try to get a cancellation. Highly recommended.
