MEET OUR TEAM

Our clinical staff consists of Registered Vascular Technologists (RVTs), Nurse Practitioners and Medical Assistants and ancillary staff who have several years of experience in vein care. Most of our staff have helped patients at La Jolla Vein Care for 5+ years.  We also have administrative staff with expertise in insurance preauthorizations, and in combination with our doctors, will fight for patients to get the treatment they need.

Because of our staff’s extensive experience in vein care, they are knowledgeable about vein conditions and treatment and are happy to answer questions any time.
