True Varicose Vein Stories: The Felonious Feline

In the North Suburbs of Chicago, there are two types of people: cat people & dog people. I guess I always considered myself a dog person, now I know why that was a sensible decision.

Brief Candles, Enduring Lessons.

I know, it’s been a while since my last post. Mostly for good reasons…things, thank G-d, have been busy at Rosen Vein Care.

Forget the epithet “The Second City”…not just cuz we’re the third largest by population at this point…Chicago is “The First City” in my book… or blog, in […]

Keep Calm & Sclero On: Vein Treatments = Doable

In under 2 weeks we’ll be celebrating the Bar Mitzvah of my oldest child, Jacob. He’s a great kid (apple…tree…’nuff said) and I couldn’t be more proud to be his Dad for too many reasons to mention during this short post…so I’ll spread the kvelling out over time. Bar Mitzvahs are really happy celebrations. And…like […]
