I'm actually a patient of Dr. Taggar, and can't say enough good things about him, along with the office staff. My sleeve gastrectomy procedure went well, have had no problems since! Very pleased, all the way.

I have known Dr Diccico since 2010., I feel very comfortable speaking with him and asking questions. He has excellent bedside manners and is very professional, my surgeries with him ( last one 5/28/20) have been successful with minimal pain after. I would highly recommend Dr. Diccico to all friends and family.

Dr. DiCicco is one of the sweetest doctors I have had. He listens to all your concerns and is truly concerned about your well being and success. All your questions are answered right away. I had bariatric surgery with Dr. DiCicco and it was the best decision I ever made. He leads you through the process and makes it very simple. I highly recommend Dr. DiCicco as a surgeon.

I had a rough time emotionally after surgery and the office staff and doctor spent an enormous amount of time explaining everything to me, comforting me, and easing my fears. They have all been a blessing and a life-saver. Thanks to them I have a healthy and happy life that I would have otherwise never been able to achieve. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for all they have done for me and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

I have already recommended Dr Dicicco to a coworker and she is currently seeing him and very satisfied. The procedure was March 22nd at Memorial Hospital Tampa. Post op care was amazing and without any problems. The staff, facility and teaching were better than I could have imagined. The follow up appointment was 4 days after surgery and I could drive myself and walk in no problem.
