Dr. Cicuto is Awesome.

Dr, Cicuto is awesome and a fellow alumnus of Ohio University. He is extremely intelligent and will have intelligent informative discussions with educated patients. But I was forced to go to Choice Care when UPMC dropped my insurance about ten years ago when I was a patient of his at UPMC Shadyside. Choice Care has Dr. Zheng Wang who is a good doctor but they use Avelon Pharmacy exclusively which is not good. They deliver to you and you must be available for a window of four hours every month to get your medications and have no choice in pharmacies. If not for this part of their practice Choice Care was great. But I did have an issue happen because of Dr. Wang's lack of English skills. He sent me for a consult for Vertebroplasty which was not an option for somebody who's spinal fractures are old which wasted my time and the surgeons. He should have known this and gave me false hope that there was a surgical procedure that could help me beyond spinal injections and medication management. But other than the Pharmacy problems and some miscommunication with Dr Wang, Dr. Wang is a competent good doctor and Dr. Cicuto is an exceptional doctor. That is as plain truth as I can lay it out there. Do your research.

A Doctor Who cares about his patients first, paperwork last

Dr. Cicuto was part of a larger operation when I first saw him. As in many fields, he moved twice during the time I saw him, more than a decade. I had a bomb blow up in my face and took a year before I could walk, at first I wasn't expected to live 48 hrs. EVERY doctor I went to gave me Tylenol 3 for pain and codeine is good for sleep but I had ruptured nerves, lost the use of my left arm(great for a pianist) and had burns all over my body despite having a fire retardant suit on(it melted, NOMEX). He listened, he was the first doctor to fully address the amount of pain I was enduring. Being awake nearly all the time didn't make things better though I could work over the computer. Dr. Cicuto helped make my life easier to live because he cared enough to prescribe medications other MD's were too worried the DEA would see they gave morphine sulfate to a patient. Some patients need strong pain medication. I have always had a high tolerance to medications for one, slept very little before being injured, and suffered agonizing pain until discovering Dr. Cicuto. He is no longer at the practice, a large one where he was unable to most likely spend the time necessary with each patient, so, moved on. Having left the US, I haven't seen him but when I needed records sent to Israel, they were here within 48 hrs and prepared properly and accepted by the physicians here. I can only say the best about Dr. Brian Cicuto as he cares about his patients more than anything else when it comes to medicine. I respect this former US Marine because he knows how to serve. If you are in severe pain, choose him as the doctor to serve you.
