Dr. Jennifer Heller enjoys seeing a diverse range of patients at the Vein Center at GBMC. A typical day may be seeing everyone from a young postpartum pregnant woman with varicose veins to an elderly man with a clotting disorder.  There are diagnostic resources available on site at The Vein Center, allowing Dr. Heller and her team to test and see results in real time to make determinations about surgery or extended care.

Dr. Heller recognizes her team as an extended, second family. Everyone at The Vein Center is part of the team  - there is no hierarchy and everyone is essential. Without each person’s contribution, things wouldn't run as well.  

Kristal Wiggins embodies that philosophy. As the first face many patients see, she strives to treat people as she would like to be treated as a patient, and tries to go a step above every day.

Attention to detail and patient care are essential no matter how small the procedure , says Dr. Heller. “I want patients to know that we’re here for them. That’s what it’s all about.”
