Dear Patients – At VSA, we take your health very seriously. In light of the current Coronavirus epidemic we are carefully following all of the CDC guidelines for Infection Control. If you are considering cancelling your procedure due to concerns over this virus, please contact one of our nursing staff to discuss this further. Delaying your procedure could cause complications to your health. VSA considers your health and wellbeing a top priority.

We are performing most outpatient procedures in our own office based surgical labs to ensure every precautionary measure to prevent contracting infection or illness is taken. Most vascular surgeries/procedures are essential in preventing major health complications or even mortality. If you are worried and have questions, please contact our office at 1-855-648-9982 and have your surgeon review your case.
