Why Choose the Alaska Vein Clinic?

If you have spider veins, varicose veins, leg swelling, heaviness and tiredness of the legs, itching, burning, pigmentation, and skin ulcers caused by venous insufficiency, you can trust the Alaska Vein Clinic to properly diagnose and treat your problems. 

If you’re not sure your leg problems are related to venous disease, we can help you sort that out as well and get you going in the right direction. And if it turns out you need a venous procedure, you will be in good hands.  

We have safely and successfully performed over 7000 non-surgical minimally invasive outpatient office-based procedures that leave patients with minimal discomfort and no downtime.

We are fully committed to doing what needs to be done and nothing more, and treating each of our patients like each of us would want to be treated.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, and have proudly worked with Veterans referred from the VA for many years. For those patients without insurance, we work out easy payment plans if needed.
