Thursday, August 15, 2019

Vascular Institute of Chattanooga announces the addition of Daniel S. Krcelic, MD, to the medical staff.   

Dr. Krcelic, a vascular surgeon, joins Dr. Chris LeSar, Dr. Joe Coatti and the VIC team to compliment the delivery of "comprehensive, convenient and concierge care" at the outpatient vascular facility, located on Lifestyle Way, to serve patients from southeastern Tennessee, north Georgia and northeastern Alabama.

"VIC is the first to open such a facility with a focus on amputation prevention serving the tricounty region," officials said.

Dr. Krcelic will also be seeing patients in the VIC Cleveland office, located on North Lee Highway.   

“At VIC, we provide world class care to the community and beyond, in our full-service outpatient vascular center, seeing patients as quickly as possible, diagnosing problems with the understanding that ‘time wasted is tissue lost’ and rapid treatment of patients in our state-of-the-art center,” said Dr. LeSar, VIC’s founding physician. “Adding Dr. Krcelic to the VIC team will provide additional expertise to operate and address complex vascular issues with appropriate therapies using the most advanced technologies for PAD, while having the personal touch that our patients have come to expect.”   

Dr. Krcelic is trained in all aspects of vascular surgery in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. He is a graduate of St. George’s University School of Medicine followed by his surgical residency at Western Michigan School of Medicine. He completed his fellowship in vascular surgery at Carolinas Medical Center and Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute in Charlotte.   

“I care deeply about my patients, and joining the Vascular Institute will bring another medical specialist to meet the needs of vascular patients in the Tennessee Valley,” Dr. Krcelic said. “My wife and I have found the community to be very welcoming and look forward to enjoying our time here for many years to come.”     

Dr. Krcelic is currently accepting new patients. Appointments can be made by calling 423-602-2750.
