Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Pfeiffer "Dr. Pfeiffer has developed a comprehensive approach to the treatment of vascular patients. This includes lifelong follow up of his patients' chronic and progressive vascular problems. In addition, he maintains an IAC accredited non-invasive vascular laboratory, conveniently located within his office, which is dedicated to the follow-up and diagnosis of vascular disease.
