Meet the Vein Healthcare Center team!

Dr. Cindy Asbjornsen, the founder and fearless leader of the Vein Healthcare Center, relies on the entire staff at VHC to ensure that our patients feel safe, comfortable, and cared for. 

You may remember our interview with Physician Assistant Alison Scheib, but we thought you'd be interested to see who else makes up our team!

Our ultrasound departMent is second to none. Emanuel "Manny" Papadakis is our Technical Director and a registered diagnostic cardiac sonographer (RDCS) and registered vascular technologist (RVT). Brad Thomas, RVT, RDMS, is our Vascular Ultrasound Technician. 

Both Manny and Brad work with patients in two ways: they produce vein mappings that help the physician create a treatment plan, and they provide ultrasound guidance for ablations and sclerotherapy treatments.

Both sonographers also care for patients in other ways. Brad does his best to make patients as comfortable as possible, treating each person as though they are a member of his own family. Similarly, Manny tries to connect with patients and get to know them a bit more on a personal level, making for a more comfortable and less intimidating visit.

In our next post, we'll meet a few more people who make up the VHC family!
