What People Say About Dr. Luca Vricella, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
My daughter has Loeys Dietz syndrome. Dr. Vricella performed 3 very complicated surgeries on her. Each time he was compassionate, explained the procedure thoroughly and continued to visit and follow up with her until she was no longer in danger. I trust his judgment and would recommend him.
