MEET OUR DOCTORS

Our vein specialists are not your average doctors.  They vein train and teach other doctors, medical students, physician assistants, and empower and educate patients everyday with knowledge and choices.  They lead clinical research studies and contribute to scientific journal and textbook publications.  Our recent research made the cover of the “Journal for Vascular Ultrasound” in March, 2018.  Our doctors continuously strive to elevate the standard in vein care- they are fellowship-trained, board certified in venous and lymphatic disease, and earned additional credentials in ultrasound interpretation to provide comprehensive vein care for all patients.
