Thank you Dr. Pica! I have been virtually pain free for the past two weeks, which is AMAZING, as I have been struggling with this foot pain for 2 years without resolution. It is wonderful that Dr. Pica spends quality time with me, actively listens, and shares the prognosis and action plan in understandable terms. Dr. Pica is super kind, engaging, and genuinely interested in how I am feeling.
I have been struggling with my foot issues for 2 years with little to no relief. I have been to another foot doctor, tried 5 different types of insoles and nothing worked. After meeting with Dr. Pica, I finally have a diagnosis and a solution that immediately gave me relief in my apt. I am hopefully that I am finally on the right path to recovery, as I am very active and want my feet to remain strong and healthy.
Dr. Pica was exceptional and I was scheduled for surgery right away. The staff was excellent, friendly, and very helpful.
Very satisfied with Dr. Pica.
I was amazed with the changes in the office. Glad to know the service hasn't changed. Awesome staff!
All aspects of this experience were new to me. Dr. Pica's introduction, explanations, procedures and results were all excellent making me comfortable, relaxed, finding my foot problems subsiding and relief on the way. Thanks to the Foot and Ankle Center [a division of FASMA] from a satisfied, relieved new patient. [...]
Appreciated his explanation of problem.
New doctor [. I'm] happy with him [and] will return for future visits
Dr. Pica was very good. He identified my foot problem and offered options to take care of it. He was kind and professional.
Dr. PIca has been terrific. He is aggressively treating my plantar fasciitis and has given me hope that we will continue working until it is completely resolved. Until I came under Dr. Pica's care, I was resigned that this would be a chronic condition for the rest of my life. So far, every tool/therapy/suggestion he has made has improved the situation. I especially appreciate that he is willing to take as much time as he needs with me in the exam room. I know how doctors' offices work and know that a longer visit with me may put him behind for the rest of the morning. And indeed the first time I saw him, I had to wait for a while in the exam room while he finished an earlier appointment. But I quickly realized that it was because he takes his time with each patient. For that kind of attention, I'm willing to wait happily until he has finished with the appointment before mine. On my second visit, there was no wait at all. And on both occasions, he never gave me the sense that he was rushing through our visit and impatient to get on to the next appointment. I appreciate that more than I can say.
Doctor took immediate action to alleviate pain. Remove ingrown toenail immediately..
My first visit with Dr. Pica two days ago was a positive one. He seemed to be so caring and helpful at that time. My former doctor (an orthopaedic surgeon with whom I had been a patient for over 20 years) has closed his practice and I was desperate to find someone to take his place. I have a very unusual foot problem and I feel like Dr. Pica will be someone who can help me continue with my very active lifestyle - I'm 73 years old. I'm very encouraged (after only seeing him just one time!)
The only negative was the requirement to fill out 4 pages of information on paper forms, uhh!! Too bad this requirement couldn't be done online prior to the actual office visit then just have me verify and sign the forms at the time of the office visit. It is soooooo annoying to sit there for 15 minutes writing the same info onto 3 or 4 different forms!
A lot of paperwork to fill out, again. Sat in the waiting room for 40 minutes before being called back to the examination room.
All members of the staff were friendly and very kind to me. Dr. pica was great and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a foot doctor.
Dr Pica is a great addition to [Richmond] staff but I will miss Dr Frost
They are wonderful. I also want to say something about the staff at the front desk. They are wonderful also. They are so helpful and they are also pressed for time. I am serious when I say that I hope they are paid enough. Enough! Give them a raise. Good front desk help is hard to find. Better take care of them!
DR PICA IS EXCELLENT
Dr Pica was great, as long as his recommendations solve my ankle issue. He has a great bedside manner.
