    “I retired with 40+yrs experience as an RN in October 2015 and moved to St. Augustine. January 2016 I developed chest pain with increasing severity. I didn’t know any physicians in St. Augustine. I chose my PCP from the internet who referred me to Dr. Vincent Caracciolo. Though aware of my background he took the time to explain everything pre/post heart cath. I respect that he didn’t hesitate to call in a 2nd opinion to help me avoid open heart surgery. He cared about me, my needs and the best approach. Bottom line no open heart, I’m fine. He’s the best.”

  • Dr. Van CriscoDr. Van Crisco treated my husband’s PAD (peripheral artery disease). He put another stent in his leg and ballooned out the other arteries. It was the first time we had met him and liked him immediately. He was very straight forward with us and gave me the complete description of the blockages he found in my husband’s leg.
