The Vein Blog That Cares

Rosen Vein Care, one of the premier Chicagoland practices devoted solely to the field of Phlebology (the treatment of venous disease including varicose/spider veins) recently had a website rehab. In addition, it was high time to refresh the VeinBlog,too.

My name is Dr. David Rosen and I am the founder and medical director of Rosen Vein Care. When I started my solo practice in Northbrook, I suppose I could have chosen any particular name for the practice…Vein Specialist blah….Vein Clinic blah…Institute of Venous Laser blah…American Laser Venous Institute in the USA Specialists…ad nauseum.

But, as I do with most things, I put a lot of thought and care into what name I would want to represent not only my practice, but me. I wanted my practice to be a paragon of vein care. I wanted to create a practice where I would be comfortable sending my family and friends…and me. A place where people can trust that my prime directive is to serve as their advocate and give them the best advice that suits their particular needs and wishes.

If you want a cold, clinical institute…you’re looking at the wrong place. My place isn’t owned by a publically-traded corporation: I don’t have a board of directors or stockholders to answer to regarding the “bottom line”. I didn’t intend to pop open cookie cutter places on every corner like a Starbucks…just a single destination and a single doc to deliver every aspect of your experience from your initial consultation to your final treatment.

If it sounds simple, written by someone who cares a lot about what he does…that’s because it is. And THAT’s why it’s Rosen Vein Care.

My training and background spans the breadth and depth of medical care and I am proud to say that the additional time I invested in training to become certified by the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine has been well worth it.

In forthcoming posts, I plan to use this Blog as a forum for educating patients about the up-to-date evidence regarding the causes and treatment of superficial venous insufficiency, venous hypertension, varicose veins, spider veins and venous ulcers.

Aside from serving as a reference, the blog will also be a means for connecting patients in the Chicagoland area with resources available on the web by providing links to relevant sites. At times, Chicagoland Vein Blog will ask for your feedback to better improve our services.

I sincerely hope to add to your fund of knowledge about varicose vein disease in a fun and interactive way. Stay tuned for more info!

Meanwhile, if you have specific questions regarding the treatment of chronic lower extremity pain, swelling, cramping, itching and other symptoms related to varicose vein disease or if you would like specific consultation regarding the elimination of bothersome spider veins please call 847-272-8346.
