Venous and Lymphatic Medicine

 Most people with vein disease have issues significantly affect their quality of life. My goal is to offer the newest, least invasive and safest treatments that get patients back to living their lives without the symptoms of vein disease. My decisions are not only about the veins but more importantly the patient with vein problems.
