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.

This has been an excellent experience from the start. Information provided pre & post-op has been accurate. Everyone in the hospital is familiar with him & what he prefers or doesn't with his patients. The nurse in surgery even stated doctors from all around the country come to observe him completing these procedures. Do what he tells you to do & you will have success. How much is up to you. The office staff is also super friendly! If you are going to do this - this is your guy!
