Leaders in Vein Care Since 2010

At La Jolla Vein Care, we feel that vein conditions deserve specialized care. That is why our facility is only one of a few dedicated vein treatment centers in San Diego and Southern California with board-certified physicians and staff trained specifically in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disorders. We also conveniently provide our own on-site vascular ultrasound imaging. We offer a variety of non-surgical treatment options.

San Diego’s Only Accredited Vein Center

La Jolla Vein Care is the only dedicated vein center in San Diego that is accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC). IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations considered relevant by medical experts in the field of Vascular Testing and as a Vein Center.

Voted Best of La Jolla, 4 years in-a-row!

If You Are Self Conscious About Your Veins, Don’t Wait Any Longer!’ “I have been wearing long pants and skirts for 29 years because of ‘splatter’ veins on both calves that developed when I was pregnant with our second son. Now, I can’t believe I waited so long to do something about it! The treatments to me were a ‘non-event’ and a few days out of my life in surgical stockings was nothing compared to the joy of a stylishly shorter skirt or walking shorts. If you are self-conscious about the road maps on your legs, I have two words for you….Don’t wait!”

Guys with Varicose Veins? Come on… Really? YES. Athletes and desk jockeys alike are subject to those bubbly veins on the back of their hamstrings. Dr. Bunke and her staff made me feel comfortable and quickly fixed my legs. I was also told that a large percentage of their clients were men, so if you have any indications of having vein issue, go see La Jolla Vein Care — summer is almost here!

’My Legs Look and Feel Better’ “There were problem areas on the legs that other practitioners recommended surgical excision, but Dr. Bunke was able to clear them with sclerotherapy….yay! Not only do my legs look better, they feel better. Cramps have markedly diminished, no itching at all and my feet don’t swell like they used to.”

Dr. Lucas and her staff are incredible. They were so kind and nurturing while I was having the vein procedures. Highly recommend 🙂

I had excellent, professional treatment of complicated leg vein problems by Dr. Sarah Lucas, Dr. Nisha Bunke, and NP Anna Cardinell. So happy to have found this excellent vein care center.

Anna M. Is the most professional and caring manager I have encountered in the medical industry. The team at La Jolla Vein Care are industry professional, but never lose the personal touch. Thanks also to Dr. Lucas.

Extremely happy with every aspect of my experience here. Dr. Lucas was completely professional and my radio frequency ablation procedure was a complete success. So incredibly happy with my results. Anna Cardinell was meticulous about the cosmetic procedure to rid me of the ugly spider and surface veins. Beyond ecstatic!
