Dr. Thomas M. Whitten

Why I enjoy phlebology:

“I love phlebology because it allows me to help people with serious problems restore their quality of life. Many of my patients have already been through other procedures, which have failed them. I am always happy when a patient comes in and tells me that, for the first time in years, they are without pain and feel good about their legs.”

Why I enjoy phlebology:

“I have always been interested in the vascular system and was excited to have an opportunity to focus on venous insufficiency.  It is very rewarding to hear our clients tell how much better their legs feel and to see the resolution of varicose veins.  I am very excited to be working at Decatur Vein Clinic.”
