Patient Comments (1)
Boston, MA |
Dr. Messina is very caring, knowledgeable, diplomatic person, that always takes time to understand a patient. We got to know him closely while my Mom’s osteoarthritis have been progressing over 10years leading to two knee replacements (prior: multiple injections). One in 2016 & one in 2017. Both surgeries are full succes that lead to faster recovery. During recovery Dr. Messina paid close attention to her healing process as much as her wellbeing in over all. We are grateful .
