About Dr Talarico
Dr. Talarico quickly diagnosed my ankle fracture and gave good advise and treatment not wasting any time. I am very happy I went to him!
I saw Dr. Talarico for a foot in dire need of help. I was impressed with his humility & expertise. He knows his business. I had complete confidence in him. His intelligence is obvious in his dedication to get the best possible result regardless of how much time it may take. His honesty and humility are impressive considering his knowledge. Not many doctors would have been willing or able to get my foot in working condition because of it seemed hopeless & there was no guarantee in the result. Dr Talarico took on the challenge with confidence and courage in his convictions. I highly recommend Dr Talarico. He is one of the best!
i had torn my achilles playing sports with people 30 years younger, stronger and faster. At first i didn’t know the extent of my injury, but when it lingered on and on, i found Dr Talerico and he expertly fixed me right up. He made the whole ordeal remarkably pleasant and i recovered quite well, and a little wiser.
Thanks Need to get a follow up
Takes time to explain details of problem and solution. Felt well taken care of.
Dr. Talarico and his staff provide great patient services. Dr. Talarico takes the time to explain medical procedures carefully, and is a good listener. After my toe surgery, I experienced zero pain and had a speedy recovery. When I called his office to follow up on my surgery, he made a personal phone call to check in on me. On another occasion he did the same. It’s so reassuring to work with a Doctor who is excellent in his field, and also good at communication with his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Talarico, an excellent foot surgeon and caring doctor.
Dr. Talarico performed rather complicated surgery rebuilding my foot. The surgery went very well. Dr. Talarico has been carefully monitoring my recovery. I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon or better followup care. He takes care to explain everything and answer questions. Thank you!
After breaking my foot and suffering with foot pain for the past 7 years (after seeing 5 different doctors for the condition) I was finally referred to Dr. Talarico by my orthopedic surgeon. I found Dr Talarico to be an excellent and compassionate physician. He listened to my concerns and answering all my questions prior to diagnosing my problem. He started out with conservative options, prior to suggesting surgery. After the conservative approach didnt give me relief, he explained the risks/rewards and I opted for surgery. I am now 5 weeks post surgery and for the first time in 7 years I have a smile on my face. Dr Talarico is now on my very short list of doctors I trust and wouldn't hesitate recommending to my family or friends. Thank you Dr Talarico!
Amazing surgeon. Best ankle doctor for any ankle and foot fracture. I have so many people who know people who know people who got there bones fixed from Dr. Talarico. Funny thing- the few people I know with a horror story had surgery by other docs. Former UCSF faculty for 10 years- HELLO!!! Professional, skilled, good bedside manner. Everything I needed.
I pretty much broke everything I could in my right ankle when I fell rollerskating in February. The stars aligned for me when I randomly picked Dr. Talarico from my insurance website as my surgeon. I had three surgeries with Dr. Talarico -- yes, I pulverized my ankle! He is an excellent surgeon, very knowledgeable and transparent with me. It was a very complicated case...At every stage of the healing process, he explained clearly what was happening and what to expect. I'd highly recommend him.
