in Wyckoff, NJ |
I had to have a very serious operation and Dr. Licata set the stage for the best possible successful surgery as well as recovery. I needed to have part of my colon removed. The office staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Whenever you call you speak with a real person.Don't be put out by the fact that he only accepts out of network benefits. The office staff takes care of submitting the paperwork. Dr. Licata is excellent at what he does and his bedside manner is great!

I have been to many doctors offices but this office is the best at all they do. I would highly recommend.

I went to Dr Licata based on my primary care physician who thought I had active appendicitis symptoms. His office staff fit me in immediately. When I saw him he said you need to go for a Ct scan immediately. His staff precertified my Ct scan immediately. Dr licata told me he would get a preliminary read and let me know. Dr licata called me almost immediately after my test and said get to the Emergency room. I didn't want to go and he insisted. He saved me from a very serious situation. Thank U!

I was completely impressed with Dr Licata expertise and level of care before and after an emergency Gall Bladder surgery. He and his staff were completely thorough explaining the procedure on what to expect during surgery and aftercare. His bedside manor was professional and comforting , which gave me a strong feeling of trust. I would highly recommend.

in Saddle Brook, NJ |
Great bedside manner. Nice doctor
Wayne, NJ |
He may be a good surgeon but I won't stay to find out because his business practices seem unethical. I made appt, came into office tried to give my BC&BS insurance card and pay $20 co-pay. They told me they would settle with me after I saw the Dr. But after seeing Dr. when I again handed in my card they told me they are out of network and I would be responsible for bill. That is information I could have used when making the appt or at the very least before seeing the Dr that day.
