Dr. John Tretter

CASA GRANDE — In 2009, after 20 years practicing medicine in upstate New York, Dr. John Tretter traded in pine forests for prickly pear and moved to Arizona and Premier Cardiovascular Center.

Now, Tretter has been voted as a finalist for best doctor in this year’s Greatest of the Grande contest.

Tretter, a member of the American College of Cardiology and the American Society of Echocardiography, is bilingual in English and Spanish, and received his medical degree from the Autonomous University of Guadalajara in Mexico. He completed his residency at Harbor Hospital in Baltimore and his cardiology fellowship at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Cleveland.

When he’s not practicing medicine, Tretter is an avid snowboarder and mountain biker and enjoys spending time outdoors with his family.

PCC, which has offices in Casa Grande, Chandler and Maricopa, describes itself as a “thriving cardiology practice” that has served the community for over 25 years.

Tretter is part of a team of doctors at PCC including: Dr. Ashok Solsi, who along with Tretter is a non-invasive cardiologist; two interventional cardiologists, Dr. Georges Nseir and Dr. Ramprakash Devadoss; an electrophysiologist, Dr. Ziad El Khoury; and a physician assistant, Rob Gervais.

The services offered at PCC include full diagnostic evaluations, cardiac stress testing, echocardiograms, pacemaker assessment/implantation, vein services and interventional procedures such as intravascular stenting, atherectomy and balloon angioplasty.

The Casa Grande location, located at 803 N. Salk Drive, has a bilingual staff and is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 4 p.m. on Friday.
