“It's important to recognize the early signs of vein disease and seek treatment as soon as possible. Bulging veins in your legs, itching, cramping, changes in leg color or simply swelling in your ankles after a long day's work, all may be a sign of a more serious condition. We need to love our bodies through care and attention. In my practice, we will help you do just that because feeling good, looking good, and unrestricted movement are essential to happy, healthy, and productive lives.”Dr. Edward LathanBoard-Certified Physician and Vein Specialist
