Alexandria VA – (May 17, 2013) – Do you have enlarged veins readily seen under the skin of the leg? Have brownish-gray discoloration on the lower leg? Itching around a vein? Do you suffer from burning, throbbing, cramping or swelling in the leg? You may suffer from venous insufficiency which causes varicose veins – a condition that is more than just a cosmetic problem.

If you think you have varicose veins or are suffering from the symptoms mentioned above, we encourage you to attend our free screening event where you will receive an ultrasound exam, a visual vein evaluation, and meeting with an interventional radiologist. During the evaluation, your individual condition will be assessed and treatment recommendations will be discussed. You will be given the opportunity to schedule a follow-up consultation.
