Do you have a brownish or yellow discoloration on your legs? How about red, dry itchy areas? Everyone assumes this is a natural part of aging or from doing a lot of activities, but at Illinois Vein Specialists we know these can be signs of venous failure and we are experts at treating vein issues.

Crazy ideas abound for getting rid of varicose veins and while keeping an active life can help maintain an all-around good body health, only board-certified specialists provide the accurate diagnosis needed to understand your venous health. Thinking to save money by finding a quick solution like topical creams or Apple Cider Vinegar compresses only fosters the mystique about venous health, and going to a doctor who isn’t a Board Certified Venous and Lymphatic physician falls into that same category. Primary care to vascular surgeons say that they can treat you, but finding the right physician to treat you is key.

So, now that kids have had their physicals and are back to school mom and dads can take time to look at their own health and get checked. Appointments are quick and easy to diagnose, and full evaluation is done using cutting-edge ultrasound technology. This controls costs and saves you from having unwanted future procedures. Dr. Rivard's 30+ years as an Emergency Room physician and his 10+ years as a Board Certified Venous doctor make for a unique combination. Your whole health many times are directly related to venous health.
