Dr. Aaron Kovaleski is new to us, having started at the end of December 2019. His expertise brings our patients another service line. Dr. Kovaleski brings us the Endovenous ablation which cauterizes varicose veins. Once the vein has been put out of commission, the body will naturally absorb the tissue and the body will not attempt to push blood down the bad vein. He will also work on DVT's (deep vein thrombosis which is clot-related).
The above specialty doctors join our own family practitioners (Dr. Perez, Dr. Pimentel & Dr. Gititu), Dr. Hoppe and our Nurse Practitioners (Jesse Smith, Susan Dorman and Michelle Wright) are referring healthcare providers and mid-levels to the wound care clinic.
