Testimonials

"When I first saw Dr. Joseph Ricotta in his office, although he was very busy with patients, he took the time to speak with me, answering all my questions and reassuring me of our direction going forward. I have seen him a few times since and he still has the wonderful bedside manner he did the first time we met. He addresses all of my concerns, reassuring me that we would resolve any issues. I have seen many other doctors in the past for my complex vascular problems. Now, that I have found Dr. Ricotta, I finally felt hope that my issues would be properly diagnosed and resolved. I am so very glad to have found Dr. Ricotta. Other doctors could take a lesson from him on how to treat their patients."
