From Dr. Ellison:
“As a vascular surgeon, I often saw that patients with varicose veins would be put on the ‘back burner’ for more pressing, life-threatening problems. It became obvious to me that patients with varicose veins deserve not just a physician but an entire practice totally dedicated to the treatment of their problems. I strongly believe that physicians should not dabble in the treatment of varicose veins. They need to have the training, armamentarium and the ability to offer the patient the precise treatment they need.”
