Why did you choose vein care as your specialty?

“I’m trained and board-certified in vascular surgery,” explains Dr. Anderson, adding that having experienced varicose vein disease himself sparked his interest in helping others overcome this painful, debilitating disease... Having (a surgical) background and having vein disease, it was a natural fit for me to go into the same area of treatment for patients with similar problems.” – Dr. Robert Anderson
