“My role at Total Vein Care is more than just ensuring that our doctors’ top-quality care is efficient, effective and appropriate. Compassion is at the center of what we do here. We care for — and about — people and their vein problems, and I take both pride and ownership of making sure that this commitment is reflected in every aspect of our daily routine. What we do, who does it and how we do it are all cornerstones of our reputation… and of the trust thousands of people have put in us. It is rewarding to be part of making a positive difference in people’s lives, so I strive to make sure we are always doing it to the highest standards. This is the commitment we make to you every day, because you deserve nothing less.”

Director of Nursing

“I never forget why I’m here: To help take excellent care of every person who walks through our door.  Few things are as personally fulfilling as being able to make a direct, positive and dramatic difference in the lives of others.  This is why I elected to become a nurse.  It’s also an important part of how everyone here treats each person in our care.  We love what we do, which is to improve lives. I put my heart into it.  And it’s always worth it!

Ashley Hart, RVT, BS
Clinical Lab Manager

“After helping provide daily care for my grandmother, I realized that I wanted to go into healthcare. I did some research and found an ultrasound school I wanted to attend. It has turned out to be the best decision I ever made. I found every aspect of ultrasound compelling, particularly the part about helping doctors diagnose medical problems, and it remains the same today. I also take the same nurturing, personally invested approach I did with my grandmother. My aim is for you to leave with peace of mind and no unanswered questions.”
