This content was provided by Dr. Heeringa "Dr. Heeringa is a Board certified General Surgeon, a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. He graduated valedictorian from Ross University School of Medicine in 1999 and completed his General Surgery Residency at the MSU/Synergy Medical Education Alliance Campus in Saginaw, Michigan in 2005. During his residency, Dr. Heeringa received awards for Outstanding Junior Resident, Teaching Awards and served as Chief resident during his last year there. Since completing residency, Dr. Heeringa practiced general surgery in Cadillac, Michigan where he was the first physician in that area to offer minimally invasive venous care. Since 2008, he saw an increasing percentage of his practice being dedicated to the treatment of venous disorders and in 2016 he decided to dedicate 100% of his care to the treatment of venous and lymphatic disorders. He therefore started Northern Michigan Vein Specialists with offices in both Traverse City and Cadillac. He is a member of both the American Venous Forum and of the American College of Phlebology. He is married to his wife Gloria and they reside in Traverse City with their two sons, Jacob and George. Dr. Heeringa enjoys running, cycling and classic cars."
