New Business – Scarless Vein Care
Meet the owners and operators of Scarless Vein Care in Leland, NC.
Why was 2020 the right time to open your business?
I believe the treatment of venous disease is best served through a more personalized setting where the surgeon has the opportunity to provide one-on-one treatment and follow-up. I left a high volume vein clinic and re-established the brand “Scarless Vein Care” and “Nice Legs, Dr. Kamran” to provide that more personalized, boutique experience. It allows me to concentrate on the quality of patient interactions, as opposed to quantity.
What made Leland the ideal location for you?
In July, it was reported by WWAY-TV that Leland ranks as the fastest growing town in North Carolina with nearly 10,000 new residents in less than 10 years. We saw an opportunity to provide the only vein center in Leland, which is conveniently located and accessible to other communities throughout southeastern, north Carolina. In addition, the census data suggested that the primary demographic of the area was in line with that of our typical patient.
What services/products do you offer?
Kamran Goudarzi, MD, FICS, FACS is one of the nation’s leaders and pioneers in the scarless treatment and elimination of varicose and spider veins. One of the first surgeons in the United States to achieve board certification by The American Board of Phlebology, Dr. Kamran has now performed thousands of successful procedures in the field.
What separates you from the competition?
Kamran Goudarzi, MD, FICS, FACS, DABVLM is an experienced, highly credentialed, board-certified vascular surgeon who is a true pioneer in the field of phlebology and vascular surgery. He was part of the first group of physicians to receive board certification by the American College of Venous and Lymphatic Disease and the first physician in the United States to incorporate Angiodynamic NeverTouch Direct laser ablation treatment in his practice. Since 2002, Dr. Kamran has performed thousands of ablations resulting in excellent patient outcomes with very low recurrence rates.
His utilization of cutting edge technology and outstanding patient outcomes allowed his practice to become one of the first 20 accredited vein treatment centers in the nation. Dr. Kamran is considered one of the foremost experts in the art of treating venous disease. He has trained numerous physicians and helped develop vein treatment facilities throughout the country, including multiple prominent centers in North Carolina.
What has been your leading success so far?
Patient testimonials! It warms my heart to hear from my patients who tell me their procedure has improved their quality of life and confidence. Years ago, my team and I had an epiphany that our marketing should focus on telling those stories. You may have seen or heard these stories and I can assure you that they are all genuine and unscripted. We have hundreds of unedited and unscripted positive reviews online as well.
How has COVID affected your business?
Symptomatically: In April, blood clots emerged as one of the many mysterious symptoms attributed to COVID-19, a disease that had initially been thought to largely affect the lungs in the form of pneumonia. Quickly after came reports of young people dying due to coronavirus-related strokes. Next, it was COVID toes – painful red or purple digits. An impairment in blood circulation is the common denominator for all of these symptoms and conditions. Simply put, COVID-19 affects the vascular system, including your veins.
Because a lot of people are staying at home and less active due to “Stay-at-home- orders, people (especially older folks) are more susceptible to blood clots. We have seen many patients this year who have been living with vein disease but their symptoms have been exacerbated due to a lack of exercise and activity.
We offer easy-to-use teleconsulting for prospective patients who feel more comfortable speaking with Dr. Kamran without a formal visit to the office. Teleconsulting is HIPPA compliant and only requires the user to have a smart phone, computer or tablet device.
What can we anticipate from you in the future?
We are growing and expanding our services to include cosmetic treatments such as laser hair removal, sun spot removal and skin tightening. We have recently hired Kirsten Schneider, MPAS, PA-C. She has extensive dermatology experience treating patients for more than 20 years.
