Riccardo Vaccaro – PT
My motto is to provide quality, up-to-date patient care, with careful attention to individual needs.
I don’t treat body parts, and I don’t treat injuries…I treat INDIVIDUALS. Individuals who walk in as patients and leave as friends! - Riccardo.
When not at work, I enjoy spending as much time as possible, being active with my young family. I'm an avid outdoorsman, Crossfitter and fly-fisherman.
