A Comprehensive Approach to Vein Care

As a practicing plastic surgeon, Dr. Fleming began treating veins for cosmetic purposes. His patients frequently asked if he could help relieve their heavy, tired, achy, cramping leg symptoms, so he decided to add state-of-the-art vein care to his practice. He sought out The Vein Guys™ and became a part of our family.
