Dr Messenger did quick and amazing work on my foot. A complex fracture that was fixed very quickly in surgery. Highly recommended!

Dr. Philip Messenger saved my foot from a 2 months long struggle and ultimate pain, what other doctors couldn’t or didn’t even wanted to treat. I’ve been through hell with huge chunks of woods broke into my foot and I’ve experienced malpractice by big citywide doctors office’s podiatrist. Finally I called Dr. Messenger’s office and when they heard about my issue and pain they immediately secured me an appointment for the following day and Dr. Messenger issued a surgery on the spot. Stable hands, professional treatment, local anesthetic.. In the end he was able to get out all the 3 big wood pieces and I felt the greatest relief ever. I was able to walk home without pain and my foot healed in 3 days totally. I will be always grateful and think of Dr. Messenger with the greatest gratitude ever.

I had ingrown toenail and Dr. Messenger performed on it. The next day it was PAINLESS!! I was genuinely shocked but apparently he knows what he’s doing. Love him and will refer to anyone looking for a podiatrist

2020 - I personally saw Dr. Messenger for a foot issue I had started experiencing earlier this year. He is very professional, diagnosed my issue very thoroughly, gave me very detailed explanations about what was causing my issue and the different options to address it and ultimately helped me manage it without surgery. I appreciate how he and his staff were friendly throughout the whole process and am happy to recommend them! 2017 - I recently to my mother to see Dr. Messenger for a chronic foot issue. The staff was helpful & accommodating & I found Dr. Messenger to be very professional. He treated my mother with great care, offered her a number of options and we were very pleased with his service.

Incomplete diagnosis. Had to take X-rays twice. Tried to sell me pricey orthotics on the first visit before trying inexpensive options. He’s an incompetent hustler
