In these days of digital reviews, I wanted to take a moment to thank Dr. DiGiacomo for taking the time to fully research and review my father's health issues as related to his rather complex degenerative podiatry issues. Dr. DiGiacomo??s immediate undertaking to locate the source of my father??s pain and disabilities along with his ability to resolve same make me indebted to him well beyond simply paying for services rendered. My father was simply to young to suffer such disabilities and we are so grateful for your services.

Pros: Good Doctors are hard to find

Cons: My Father Resides in Sacramento

When I walked into Michael DiGiacomo's office my mind was open. From the first moment with him, I felt I was as important to him as any of the famous people on the walls. He listened, he asked questions, he explained and he would not do what was not necessary. He took into consideration my self, which is more than my feet, and treated my person.

But the healing process does not rest solely in the hands of the surgeon. Before you see the doctor, you will interact with a support staff, you will find personable, patient and caring professionals. They are there to support both doctor and patient.

Pros: professional, personable and caring

Cons: None

I would rate this Doctor 0 Stars if I could.

I was referred to Dr. Di Giacomo by my primary care physician because he is part of my medical group. The appointment wasn't so bad, but I did leave feeling ripped off. They had apparently purchased their own x-ray machine to further their business, but it was a cheap one which didn't produce any usable resolution on the image. The nurses put the images up on display in the room, but the Dr. never even looked at them. He diagnosed my condition after moving my foot side to side twice and said his office would call me with a recommendation for treatment.
That was five months ago. Since then I've been calling his office asking for treatment and all they do is say they will call me back soon. Today the Doctor got on the phone and said he didn't need the trouble I was causing and that he would contact my insurance company and see why they had not approved a treatment. He didn't even talk to me for a moment to assess the situation, he just got on the phone and acted like I was causing a problem with his staff. I made a complaint to my insurance company, who said that Dr. Di Giacomo had not requested any treatment at all. We are currently in some stage of grievance resolution.

Pros: photos of celebrities on wall give appearance of skill

Cons: complete hack job and rip off artist

Dr DiGiacomo is a wonderful doctor I am a diabetic and he makes me feel comfortable and no matter when you see him even to bump into him on the street he takes the time to ask how you are and truely cares for you. He really makes me feel like he is there for me for all my special needs as a diabetic. He is one of the good ones. And all the patients I have seen love him!

I recently had Dr. Giacomo perform a foot surgery and he and his staff could not have been more attentive and professional. The office is very clean and the procedures was very quick. I would highly recommend him. I live in Antioch and was happy to travel to Oakland for his services.

Cons: You have to look for parking in the afternoon. Limited

I went to Dr Digiacomo for a severe case of athletes foot he prescribed Lamisil and required lab work. He was very nice in person. His office staff lost my lab work for over a month. They told me they had no Idea what office I went to for the lab work even though it was across the street and they TOLD me to go there! I had to call multiple times and every time I spoke to the staff they were downright mean! After they found the lab work the the doctor LIED to my insurance company and said my condition was minor. I could barely walk! So of course my insurance refused to pay. I contacted the doctor again and his mean staff lady said the doctor would save us money by prescribing the generic version of Lamisil.
This took another month and my big toenail FELL off! Walking became even harder. Then I guess the the doctor decided to forget the generic Lamisil idea and reperscribed it in two separate portions. And wanted me to come in for an office visit every time a portion was close to running out. Maybe to make more money off my insurance company? I started taking the pill and called to have the next portion of my prescription sent to me and THEY LOST MY ADDRESS! I have been suffering with this dishonesty and incompetence for months now living with the pain and the office staff or doctor have never even apologized. I don`t write reviews very often but I wanted people to know how this doctor and his staff really treat people.

Recently our college age son had a freak injury to his foot and Dr. Di Giacomo took exceptional care of his needs. Surgury went well. Staff helped us through the process smoothly even though we were 400 miles away. We can never thank him enough.
