What makes our team different from the rest? As team members of VSA, we do not believe in the herd mentality that has become the norm in today’s health care environment. This is why we choose to work for VSA. We value each and every patient relationship, getting to know each as a unique individual. From your first inquiry leading to your initial consultation, through treatment if needed, and then post-op follow-up care, we want to ensure you are educated on the process, make sure your questions are answered, know what to expect, and of course, solicit your feedback once your care is completed. The feedback you provide will help us render the best in vein care to your friends, family, and co-workers.
