About Our Practice
Our office-based vein care practice was founded for the treatment of varicose veins and venous insufficiency using phlebectomy and radiofrequency and foam ablation. These procedures are performed in the office, and no hospitalization is necessary. Most of our patients are back to work and normal activities the next day. Almost all insurance companies cover the procedures.
We have a full-service vascular lab with licensed technicians who specialize in vascular testing. All venous studies are performed on-site. We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most other commercial insurance plans.
