  1. First time to see new dr - Dr Pica. He is a great dr!!

  2. Dr. Pica was awesome. Answered my questions with patience and thoroughly. He had a great sense of humor and interacted with me on my level and respected my intelligence. I am actually looking forward to him performing my foot surgery and aftercare! I suddenly have hope...

  3. Very nice doctor answered all of my [questions]

  4. Dr. Pica truly cared about my foot , his hands on approach at my first appt was exactly what I needed. He took my previous [orthotics] and made some adjustments while I was waiting in the room. Which was a huge help in being able to walk out with them and not having to wait weeks for new ones. However we did get new ones made that day and they are great. My previous podiatrist was trying to push surgery on me. I am very happy I got a second opinion. Dr. Pica did what was in my best interest and I could tell he cared about my condition and wanted to get me relief in the least invasive way to my body. Would highly recommend him to anyone !!

  5. I really like Dr Pica

  6. I am pleased that Dr.Pica looked into a solution to my problem. Now that I have the lifts to correct my walking, hopefully, I won't have to spend the rest of my life walking like Quasimodo. I look forward to my next appointment.

  7. Dr Pica was very nice and helpful in answering my questions. He had a concern for my foot problem. Gave me some answers that I had never heard of. [...]

  8. Dr [Pica] was very responsive and helpful during this visit.

  9. Very professional and competent.

  10. [Outstanding] he put my life back on track with his care

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Dr. Pica was exceptional and I was scheduled for surgery right away. The staff was excellent, friendly, and very helpful.

  14. Very satisfied with Dr. Pica.

  15. I was amazed with the changes in the office. Glad to know the service hasn't changed. Awesome staff!

  16. 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. [...]

  17. Appreciated his explanation of problem.

  18. New doctor [. I'm] happy with him [and] will return for future visits

  19. Dr. Pica was very good. He identified my foot problem and offered options to take care of it. He was kind and professional.

  20. 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.
