He sees patients at the Buena Vista Health Center and performs procedures at the Salida hospital.

“Dr. Berarducci is covering for Dr. Schmidt while he is on leave and will also be providing cardiology services on an ongoing basis,” said HRRMC Vice President of Business Development Peter Edis. “When Dr. Schmidt returns, the doctors will work opposite weeks of each other.”

Dr. Berarducci earned his degree in medicine from Wayne State University in Detroit.

He completed a residency in internal medicine at Sinai-Grace Hospital in Detroit and a three-year fellowship in cardiology at the University of Illinois in Chicago.

“I like to engage each patient as a partner and ideally as someone who is active in their care,” said Dr. Berarducci. “I feel that in some ways I act as a coach, encouraging my patients to understand their disease, invest in self-care, and comply with established medical care.”
