Brief Biography of Dr. Crisco
Originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, Dr. Crisco attended college at Wake Forest University and then Medical School at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill School of Medicine. He trained in Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, and in Cardiology at Emory University in Atlanta, GA as a basic science molecular cardiologist, general cardiologist, and then interventional cardiologist, finishing in 2000. From 2000-2013, Dr. Crisco served the patients of metropolitan Atlanta, GA as a busy private practice interventional cardiologist. In 2013, Dr. Crisco joined the outstanding physicians of First Coast Heart and Vascular Center (FCHV) in Jacksonville, Florida. As a member of FCHV, his clinical focus includes invasive and interventional cardiovascular procedures, peripheral vascular disease management and endovascularintervention, acute heart attack care, structural heart disease management, as well as general cardiovascular medicine consultation.
He has always been actively involved in clinical trialing of cardiac devices, drug therapies, and patient management strategies, including radial artery access for cardiac catheterization and coronary intervention, structural heart disease, same-day discharge coronary intervention, PFO closure, and complex coronary intervention. He holds patents on cardiac devices and drug management systems and has enjoyed success in the cardiac device industry.
Dr. Crisco is married to Dr. Carol Crisco, an anatomic and surgical pathologist who he met in training in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They have a son, Max Crisco, soon to turn 10 years old. Dr. Crisco enjoys a sporting life including watersports of all types (diving, fishing, skiing, kite-boarding, and boating), as well as hunting, golf, tennis and travelling, so north Florida fits his personal interests outside of medicine quite well.
