What People Say About Dr. Michael Decicco, MD

Dr. Decicco has a very cheerful, outgoing personality but I didn't find he listened to me or answered my questions, let along suggested any useful treatment. Although I had looked at the Mayo clnic and Harvard Med websites and read articles about what treatments were available, Dr. Decicco did not suggest any of them or think any of them worthwhile. I left the appointment feeling depressed and hopeless, although I hadn't arrived that way.

I was referred to Dr. Dicicco by my P.C. and am so glad she chose him. He explained why he was ordering the test he did, explained the possible decisions that might need to be made, etc. When he came into the room, he had already looked at my radiology study and read the report, as well as checked the previous one from two years prior. That preparation before he saw me impressed me.

Rude & yelled at my wife for trying to move along the process of seeing him after having an MRI for sudden loss of hearing in right ear & an increase of her existing tintinus that scared her. No bedside manner!

He is the most considerate Doctor I know. I have been seeing him for quite a few years now and would not see anyone else for my problems.

I was very dissapointed in the services there. I waited about 45 mins to be seen and felt rushed during the consultation. Also after having an issue with the medication I was prescribed they cancelled my follow up and told me I would need to find a different doctor which I felt was poor service on their end. Poor communication and just a lack of care. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.
