According to Hooman Shabatian, M.D., founder and medical director of West Medical, varicose veins are unsightly, large, raised and swollen blood vessels that typically develop in the legs. Spider veins are smaller, red, purple and blue vessels that are easily visible though less prominent than varicose veins and often appear on the legs and face. The most vulnerable to developing these vein conditions include:

· Those whose family members suffer from pronounced veins
· Occupations that involve prolonged standing (e.g., nurses, retail clerks, hairstylists, teachers, factory workers)
· Overweight/obese men and women
· Pregnant women
· Those experiencing hormonal changes
· Women taking birth control pills
· Those experiencing increased pressure of the abdomen caused by tumors, constipation and garments like girdles.

Due to time constraints, the consultations are available on a first come, first serve basis. To reserve your spot, visit or call 855-525-6237. For updates on vein matters, “Like” West Medical on Facebook, visit us at, or follow us on Instagram - @west.medical and Twitter - @West_medical.
