A well known Mohawk Valley Cardiologist is leaving private practice and merging with Mohawk Valley Health System.

Beginning September 1, the practice will become MVHS Cardiovascular and Preventative Medicing with Fred Taraico, MD, FACC, the hospital announced on Tuesday.
“I, along with nurse practitioners Pat Rosati, ANP, and Taylor Unser, FNP-C, look forward to making this transition," Talarico said.
In a message to patients on his website, Dr. Talarico added:
IT HAS BEEN OUR PRIVILEGE TO PROVIDE YOU WITH CARDIOVASCULAR AND PREVENTATIVE CARE OVER THE YEARS. YOUR TRUST IN OUR TEAM HAS BEEN GREATLY APPRECIATED.
