Doc R. was Great. All the staff was so friendly. I went in with severe pain in my foot, We decided to try inserts for my shoes to correct my foot. Once I got them i was able to walk again without pain. I am so grateful. Again I had a Good Experience! I recommend Emerald Coast Podiatry Office!

Dr. Ricciardi is a fanstastic doctor and has a great staff. I had very little wait time in the lobby. Once in the exam room, Dr. Ricciardi was attentive and explanatory and his time with me did not feel rushed. I’ve had plantar fasciitis off and on for many years. I’ve used an exhaustive list of therapies and gadgets and doctors, but working with Dr. Ricciardi my pain is gone, and gone relatively quickly. I would highly recommend him! He’s the best.

Recently saw Dr Ricciardi for pain in my foot unrelieved by rest and arthritis medication. From the moment I arrived , I was greeted by friendly staff who promptly attended to the paperwork and made me feel welcome . Within 10 minutes, I was escorted to the exam room where Dr Ricciardi examined my foot thoroughly, performed appropriate xrays , reviewed his findings and discussed treatment options . After receiving steroid injection and short term use of orthopedic boot, I am pleased to report resolution of the problem. My experience was excellent !

A large toe joint needed repair, there was a painful bump in the ball of my foot, and two bad hammer toes.Dr Ricciardi used staples instead of screws to fuse the big toe joint. I felt like the toe was more stable with the staples and felt it healed faster than previous surgeries using a screw to fuse the bones. It is is five weeks later and I am wearing a shoe. The hammer toes are straight, the painful bump is gone, and the first time in Year’s I am without pain in my right foot.

Have recommended already and will continue to do so. From the front door to the completion of the diagnosis and treatment; excellent communication and care. Knowledgeable, yet he communicates to patient with ease and explains thoroughly. Allows for questions and is at ease with time spent each visit. Never felt rushed with staff or Dr. Ricciardi.

Shirley Meade in Crestview, FL – Jun 25, 2019
I am a 58-year old crossfit hybrid (Militia Fitness) participant, and hypermobility in a joint in the arch of my foot caused pain and a bunion that threatened to prevent my activities. Dr Ricciardi identified the problem and performed a very successful treatment that will soon allow me to return to full activities. He explains everything, starts with non-surgical options, and takes into account one's lifestyle for treatment options. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Crestview, FL – Feb 22, 2019
Technically excellent, compassionate and empathetic. I needed a lesion removed while in the area on vacation, and Dr. Ricciardi (after first making sure it wasn't malignant) removed it skillfully. Nurses and office staff were professional and personable. I appreciated the excellent care and highly recommend this practitioner.

Dr. Ricciardi literally saved my husband. After years of seeing another doctor and no hope in sight, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. If you need someone who really knows this area of healthcare, go see him.

Dr. Ricciardi has been a lifesaver for me. I have seen 2 other podiatrist who have been unsuccessful with any treatment for my plantar fasciitis for 1.5 years. After seeing Dr. Ricciardi, in a month I am feeling like I am on the road to recovery! I would highly recommend anyone to Dr. Ricciardi. He demonstrates great expertise and knowledge! Thank you again Dr. Ricciardi! You have been a blessing and I wish I had seen you sooner!!

Dr Ricciardi and Emerald Coast Podiatry were great. I had an ongoing issue for almost 10 years that I had seen several other doctors for to no avail. After a couple visits and a treatment program the issue has been completely resolved. I couldnt be happier with the service. I highly recommend Dr Ricciardi and Emerald Coast.

My husband, myself and two of our daughters have seen Dr. Ricciardi for different problems in the past couple of years. Every time he has taken the time to do a full exam and listen to our issues. He always explains treatment options and allows us to make the best decision for our family.

Carol in Crestview – May 15, 2018
I saw him 3 times and he couldn't remember my history with the 2nd and 3rd time. I had ZERO relief from the 2, yes 2! injections but didn't hesitate to sell me shoe inserts, foot splint, air cast. Wanted me to do a custom ortho and then suggested that if this injection didn't work, my only option is a $1,200. stem cell injection. Made an appointment with another DPM and had relief after the 1st injection for plantar fasciitis. Do not give this Dr your money.

Dr Ricciardi is the best. Always professional, yet still a super nice guy. He’s easy to talk to and he really listens. I really appreciated that he gave me treatment options and didn’t push me to choose one over another. 10/10 Would definitely recommend.
