Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smalling "The only Interventional Cardiologist in the KC region, dedicated solely to the treatment of varicose veins and vein treatment, in our new premiere vascular patient facility in Overland Park, KS. Smalling Vascular Institute llc is proud to be Kansas' first and only physician to offer the latest technology in vein closure, called VenaSeal, the most advanced FDA approved treatment using a biological adhesive to seal veins closed, situated closer to the skin's exterior. These veins are "sealed" shut, in order to re-route and promote improved venous blood flow return efficiency to the deep venous system. We are the only medical practice certified to perform VenaSeal in the Kansas City region. Our area's best Wound Specialists & Podiatrists collaborate with SVI in the team-approach to resolving difficult, unique leg ulcer and wound patients. Additionally, we offer our region's colleagues in OB/GYM, Family Practice, General Practice & our area Interventional specialist colleagues, immediate arterial testing & same-day testing for concerns of DVT. Drop by and tour our new 5k sq. foot premiere vascular center, where our patient's are jumping for joy! Visit our website or Facebook page, google in vein or INVEINMD."

Dr Smalling is just marvelous. Very understanding as well as good at what he does. Almost no pain during or after procedure. His staff has the same good qualities that he exhibits. Can't say enough good things about all of them.

This patient was always delightful. Although we can be running late from time-to-time, we assure all patients, regardless of their appt. time, that we treat every patient with focused, detailed care. If that means spending more time than we had initially scheduled, it's what we do. If we need to see a patient after hours, it is scheduled. Every patient has Dr. Smalling's cell #. This kind of generous atmosphere provides optimal "old school" patient care. Thank you for the compliment! Stay well!

In fairness to the office & the 100's of happy patients treated, this patient didn't disclose 1) she was a non-compliant patient throughout treatment 2) she failed to discuss her dissatisfaction of her physician experience with anyone so it could have been corrected & 3) our medical practice never refuses to see any patient for non-reimbursement. Any patient of Dr. Smalling's, who knows him well, knows he is more likely to provide too many details. Or speak with patients longer than allotted.

I was fortunate to have Dr. Smalling perform VenaSeal, the newest technical advance of vein obliteration. I was his second patient and I was able to jump off the procedure table, put my high heels back on, smooth my skirt down and walk directly out of the office with two wee 1" band-aid like...more
