Dr. Ralph P Ierardi has the following 1 specialty
- Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Me and him are so much alike and make each other laugh. I always felt uncomfortable around doctors despite the numerous amount of problems I had. But Ierardi he was different and he made me feel like I could completely be myself it's gonna be depressing when I stop seeing him. I have never been so calm for getting prepped for surgery I just completely trust him and weirdly look forward to every appointment to make each other laugh again I just really love this doctor. By the way if you have Tuerff she is the worst one possible I was stuck with her at first which was terrible but then I changed it to this amazing doctor
Polite, knowledgeable, caring and forthright. He explained the risk analysis to my Father regarding vascular surgery and why it was not an option after final review of all the findings. He answered all the questions from myself, my Father, and siblings. We have yet to see him in his office but so far we were impressed. His whole team at CC Heart & Vascular Center were excellent. The resident Owen G., M.D. was top notch. Thank you.
I have no issues with the doctor only the staff. The doctor's asst.(or "communicator" per office), Dawn, is extremely rude and incompetent within her role. My fmla was denied because she failed to turn my forms in for over 1month. I had called 1wk after dropping off forms and told they were lost. I personally dropped off an add'l copy. I called for 3wks, I l/m with other staff and l/m for Dawn. She was either out or had to return my call. I final spoke to Ajay to say I was reporting this to pt relations since my HR denied claim and this could place me in bad standards within my job performance, she told me the last msg confirmed that I had dropped off forms 3wks prior. I rc'vd call back from Dawn stating forms were on doctors desk to sign and next time I would need to allow her more than 1wk to complete. I informed her it was almost 3wks since I dropped off the 2nd copy. She told me that was incorrect, it was documented 1wk prior. I reported this to empl relations at CC hoping that other pts do not have to experience the same lack of compassion and empathy towards their health care as I have. It's not just about forms, it's the way I was treated.
