From the first time I spoke with Vivian ARNP in Dr. Ricotta's practice I knew we were going to be in for the best care for my husbands peripheral vascular problems. She is amazingly caring and professional. Then meeting with Dr Ricotta, his knowledge and experience is unmatched. All I could think was "boy did we get lucky with the insurance providers on this." Dr Ricotta has performed 2 angio's with stent insertions on my husband and we continue with follow up care. Big kudos to all the professionals on the office. Thank you all.
