What People Say About Dr. Cosimo Ricciardi, DPM

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dr. Ricciardi was the fourth doctor I had been to about my foot pain. I trusted him immediately and knew that he was going to be the one to help. He took the time to truly listen and gave me different options for treatment. Within the first two weeks my pain went from a 10 to a 2 and we are working to get it to 0. I will be a patient for life.

I have been a very satisfied patient of Dr. Ricciardi for several years. He is very professional, with excellent "bedside manner." Dr. Ricciardi remembers personal details of his patients conversations., names, dates, details.. He is a professional in every sense. Sometimes, when he has patient "overload" that results in service delays, he never fails to apologize to the patient for the delay in service. I really like Dr. Ricciardi as a professional service provider. Sincerely, Dennis R. Prucha
