About Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

We are committed to keeping you, our communities and our staff safe. To better protect you, please call before your appointment if you are experiencing a fever (temperature over 100.4 F), cough AND have either close contact with a laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 patient within 14 days of symptoms OR recently traveled from one of these areas: China, Iran, South Korea, and continental Europe (but not the UK).

Patient Forms and Information

The staff at the Tenet Florida Cardiovascular Care is dedicated to providing our patients with outstanding customer service, so we continually strive to make your visit with us a pleasant one. We take great pride in ensuring that all of our patients’ needs are met and believe in the importance of working to deliver excellent patient care on a daily basis.

Please take a moment to download, complete, and print out the following patient forms and bring them with you to your visit. Not only will this help us decrease wait times, but it will allow us to maximize the time you spend with your physician.


  1. Please arrive at the office 15 minutes PRIOR to your appointment time and bring the following with you:

    • Photo ID and insurance card, your physician referral slip, and a completed patient history questionnaire (see forms above).
    • Bring a list of ALL of your medications, as well as copies of any prior studies (CT scan, MRI, Vascular Lab or Doppler Study).
    • If applicable, please bring a disc with the studies so the doctor can review them, in addition to the report. This is usually available from the hospital or facility where the study was done. If you have had vascular surgery, please bring a copy of any operative notes (if possible).
  2. Many patients will require vascular lab studies to complete their evaluation. Whenever possible, we will schedule this study on the same day, either immediately before or after you see the doctor. However, since the time to perform these studies varies, there may be some delay between your vascular study and when you see the doctor. If this poses a problem, we can schedule a separate visit for the study.

  3. In general, you should expect your first-time visit with the doctor to last about 30-45 minutes. For follow-up appointments, you should expect to spend about 15 minutes with the doctor. If you are to have a vascular lab study, you will need to add 45-60 minutes to this time.


We accept most insurance plans, as well as Medicare and Medicaid.

Dr. Joseph J Ricotta MD, MS, FACS Performs First Robotic Peripheral Vascular Procedure in the U.S.

Dr. Joseph J Ricotta MD, MS, FACS Performs First VenaSeal Procedure in Southeast United States


Back in 1964, I spent more than a month at Sister’s Hospital in Buffalo, NY. I was pregnant and hemorrhaging when Dr. Joseph John Ricotta saved my life. Fast-forward 54 years later and his grandson, Dr. Joseph John Ricotta II, treated me in Delray Beach, FL for peripheral arterial disease which causes blockages in the arteries of the legs.

After an initial visit used to discover the extent of artery blockages, at Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach, Dr. Ricotta put two stents in the left leg and one stent in the right leg to open up the blocked artery. My condition improved after the treatment.

Dr. Joseph Ricotta’s attitude reminded me of his grandfather’s. The first time I saw him, I said if you’re half of good as your grandfather, I’m going to have a friend. He is fantastic. I’m really very happy with him. I love being with him, his office staff is really great. They know me when I come in now.
