Dr. Medina Opens Triangle Vein Clinic
Dr. Medina opened the Triangle’s first specialized vein clinic in 1991. As he has grown the practice to serve the specialized need for vascular care in the Triangle, one thing hasn’t changed for him — his commitment to patient education. It’s important to him that patients feel educated and informed about the vascular procedures and treatments they will be receiving. While there are cosmetic concerns involved with venous disorders, they represent an underlying medical condition that needs to be addressed. By spending time with his patients, Dr. Medina wants each patient to feel comfortable with the treatment and procedure.
Beyond his focus on providing exceptional vascular surgical care, Dr. Medina enjoys exploring the bigger pictures in life. He likes traveling to picturesque locales where he can practice his panoramic photography and landscape video skills. He also enjoys visiting locations throughout California where key scenes in old western movies were filmed. He maintains a website dedicated to these legendary scenes.
