      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Ricketts says...

      My aspiration for a career in medicine began as a child. I was raised in a community where the practice of medicine was not appreciated until it was too late. As a family physician I have the opportunity to promote preventative care within the community to prevent certain illness such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol, to name a few.

      As a family physician I specialize in treating a wide range of patients from age 5 to 98 yrs. In addition to preventative care I also manage chronic and acute illnesses. I work alongside our local specialist in coordinating care for our patients. Most of the laboratory and diagnostic procedures are completed on site at our facility. Our electronic medical record makes patient care safe and efficient.

      Being a family physician is a privilege. It is a pleasure to serve the community of Okeechobee, Port St Lucie and the surrounding areas.
