Peripheral artery disease

The comprehensive peripheral vascular disease program is a dedicated and comprehensive clinic within the cardiovascular specialty for patients with peripheral arterial disease.

We specialize in diagnostic testing, evaluation by vascular specialists, and formulation of plan in a timely manner. Most importantly, we discuss treatment options (medical therapy, appointments for exercise program, stents, or surgery) in a multidisciplinary fashion with patient preferences and successful outcomes as the primarily goals.
