See vascular surgeon: The circulation consists of the heart which pumps the blood, the arteries which carry the blood to the extremities and rest of the body and the veins which return the blood to the heart from the body and extremities. kA cardiologist can evaluate your heart and a vascular surgeon can evaluate your arteries and veins.
