Prioritize Your Vascular Health This Summer

Visit Novant Health Vein Specialists at their Brand New Location


Tired of unsightly varicose veins causing you to think twice before wearing shorts to a summer barbecue or beach vacation? Concerned about serious complications that could occur from leaving varicose veins untreated? Vascular health often flies under the radar, as many individuals are unaware of the symptoms and risk factors of vein disease, as well as the treatments available for various venous problems. It’s time to take matters into the hands of board-certified physicians who specialize in treating vein disease. With a convenient new clinic opening in High Point this summer, Novant Health Vein Specialists are ready to repair your vascular health so you can get back to the life you love.

If you’re beginning to experience symptoms of vein disease such as swelling of the legs and ankles, leg cramps, or aching and throbbing in the legs, it may be time to consult a doctor. Vein disorders affect over 25 million Americans. The most frequent causes of vein disease are genetics and pregnancy, but lifestyle factors such as obesity and activity level can also play a role in developing vascular problems. Although venous issues are typically not life-threatening, untreated varicose veins and venous insufficiency can potentially cause serious health and circulatory issues down the road. Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), a more serious venous condition, is less common but carries significantly more risk, as patients with untreated DVT are more susceptible to suffering from a pulmonary embolism – a condition in which a blood clot blocks one or more arteries in the lungs.

While complications from vein disorders are a nuisance and can be frightening, seeking treatment doesn’t have to be. Physicians at Novant Health Vein Specialists (NHVS) have been tremendously improving the quality of their patients’ lives in the Triad for years. Patients can expect top-notch care and bedside manner from their providers, which has helped the practice build its stellar reputation among the community. While many health practices experience high turnover among physicians and staff, doctors at NHVS have become a family. Doctors Ashley Rickey, C. Ray Workman, Joel Deonanan, R. Bradley Thomason, III, Phil Moore, and Shawn Fleming are currently accepting new patients at their Winston-Salem, Kernersville, and High Point locations, and have years of history working together in building patients’ trust and renewing their vascular health. NHVS is also home to highly skilled Physicians Assistants. Jean Goff has worked tirelessly as a PA for years and is now accompanied by the team’s newest PA, Kristen Wright. For patients who would feel more comfortable being seen by a female doctor as opposed to a man, Dr. Ashley Rickey welcomes you. Not only is she highly respected in her field, but she is also a die-hard Clemson fan – all of which are great qualities for putting a smile on her patients’ faces when helping to return them to the quality of life they deserve.

Did you know that Novant Health Vein Specialists is one of the only practices in the Triad offering deep vein work and wound care for patients suffering from vein disease? Although spider vein or topical laser procedures are offered at various clinics in the area, it’s imperative to find qualified surgeons when it comes to deep venous work – making NHVS a saving grace for patients throughout the Triad. Minimally invasive, out-patient vein ablation procedures allow patients to experience almost immediate relief from pain and suffering caused by varicose veins with little to no scarring. Additionally, free venous health screenings are offered twice per month at the practice’s Winston-Salem location to assist patients in jumpstarting their vascular care. With the opening of their newest clinic in High Point this summer, patients can expect the same great quality and availability of free screenings as well.

During patient consultations, doctors use ultrasound technology to pinpoint venous leaks before treatment to ensure that the root of the problem has been identified. The practice’s Vascular Lab performs thousands of studies per year and utilizes state-of-the-art equipment to provide physicians with in-depth vascular imaging and testing. The highly-trained physicians at NHVS invest in regularly continuing their education and are in constant communication with other vascular doctors to stay on top of the latest vascular health research and technology. To help patients better understand vein disease, the practice offers online educational tools such as blog posts to answer any questions or ease any hesitancy in individuals considering treatment. Doctors at NHVS are devoted to making sure their patients are comfortable and satisfied with the care they receive and look forward to treating patients at any one of their three convenient locations in Winston-Salem, Kernersville, and their newest clinic in High Point.
