The Vein Center of Southwest Louisiana, under the medical
direction of cardiologist and peripheral vascular specialist Dr. Carl
Fastabend, will host a free screening on Monday, April 16, from 3:30 to 6 pm in
Lake Charles. The screening is being held at their office, located at 711 Dr.
Michael DeBakey Dr., Ste. 100. Refreshments will be served.
"Many people mistakenly think their leg pain and varicose
veins are just normal part of aging, or a simple cosmetic problem, but they may
be signs of a more serious, underlying vascular condition,” says Dr. Carl
Fastabend, who is the only full-time vein specialist in Louisiana.
This free vein screening will evaluate visible spider and
varicose veins, as well as symptoms individuals may be experiencing in their
legs, including swelling, pain, burning, itching, cramping skin changes,
discoloration, heaviness and restlessness. Information on recommended treatment
options, if needed, will also be provided.
Call (337) 312-VEIN for more information or to schedule
your screening appointment. Walk-ins are also welcome.
