  • Coming from the west side, take Beaver Street down until you make a right on Davis Street. Then turn right on Duval street.

Where do I park?

There is parking in front of our building as well as additional parking at the medical building next door.

How or when do I complete new patient paperwork?

New patient paperwork will be sent to your home address in the mail.

How long is the office visit and what does it involve?

Typically, an office visit takes about one hour. During the visit, we perform a non-invasive screening for Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) called QuantaFlo. Also, at the initial office visit, we will perform an ultrasound if necessary.

Do I unwrap my legs or take off my compression socks before my appointment?

Yes. In order to understand the complexity of your disease or diagnosis, we do not want any compression to be applied to your legs for 24 to 48 hours prior to your appointment. Compression can give a false-negative result, which would change the true treatment plan needed.

If you have wounds that are unable to be uncovered, wearing dressings to your appointment is acceptable and we will unwrap and rewrap your legs following the appointment.

What do I bring to my first appointment?

Please bring your driver’s license, current insurance card, and updated medication list.

How long will my procedure take?

Depending on what procedure, the time spent in our office may vary.

Venous ablations will take around one hour in total.

During deep vein and angiogram procedures, you should expect to be at our office for at least six hours of the day, if not longer.

For fistula or graft procedures, you should anticipate being at the office for at least two or more hours.

Do I need a ride for my procedure?

Yes, any procedure requiring twilight sedation will require a ride to and from our office. This includes deep venograms, angiograms, port placements, fistulagrams, maturations, and declots.
