May-Thurner Syndrome and the Potential for Blood Clots

Most of us are aware of the dangers of blood clots and generally understand the importance of moving our legs or walking around when forced to sit or lie in the same position for a long period of time (i.e. extended flights or hospital stays). Aside from adopting healthy lifestyle habits, knowing what to look for and how to make simple adjustments will generally make a huge difference whether or not you develop a clot—also known as deep

How Concerned Should You Be About a Stroke?

When it comes to diseases that sit on most of our radars, heart disease and cancer consistently rank near the top; however, while stokes don’t play a huge factor for most people—even when they know someone who has had one—it’s important to realize that their frequency means they should be a major concern for all of us, especially when the consequences can be life-changing

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."
