About

Bio

WE are committed to comprehensive evaluation of our patient's vascular conditions in an outpatient setting. We emphasize non invasive and minimally invasive treatment options. Our recommendations are made with each individual's needs and expectations in mind and are coordinated with the his/her other physicians. With an in office vascular laboratory we can usually provide a diagnostic plan in a single setting.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
