“I enjoy being able to help my patients throughout the entire surgical process, from their initial consultation to their release from care. For many patients, vascular care can be ongoing and long term, which allows me to build relationships with my patients. For some patients, we are able to relieve pain through symptom management. I find it very rewarding to help patients improve their quality of life in this regard.”
