"I’m very comfortable that Circulatory Centers was the right practice for me"...Jeffrey Goldblatt, M.D.
Old Lyme, CT, and Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) May 09, 2011
Circulatory Centers, a premiere practice specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins, recently completed an acquisition of Shoreline Vein Clinic and Medical Spa thereby adding locations in Norwich and Old Lyme, Connecticut. This brings the total number of Circulatory Center offices to 21 in four states – including Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia in addition to Connecticut.
Shoreline was selected primarily due to its reputation for patient care and expertise in the field. Jeffrey Goldblatt, M.D. will remain on-board as Staff Physician and Medical Director of Circulatory Centers’ Connecticut practices. Dr. Goldblatt has a Board Certification in General/Vascular Surgery, as well as, in Phlebology. He has an extensive background in the treatment of venous disease - practicing vein care since 1991. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and of the American Board of Phlebology, a Fellow of the American College of Surgery and a Member of the American College of Phlebology – the governing body of venous care.
Dr. Goldblatt was very impressed with his visits to Circulatory Centers over the past several months. “The care and quality of treatment that I observed met the same standards that I’ve executed for the past 20 years in CT. I felt that it was time to join a larger group that had management infrastructure in place – along with a reputation for quality medical care – so that I can focus solely on patient treatment. I’m very comfortable that Circulatory Centers was the right practice for me”.
According to Circulatory Centers President David Gilpatrick, this acquisition further solidifies their reputation as the leading provider of vein care in the Eastern United States. “Dr. Goldblatt and his team have been leaders in this field for years. As we continue to grow, it’s critical that we partner with practitioners who share the same vision of making every step of the patient experience – from the first telephone call through the insurance process, treatment and follow-up – extremely positive and beneficial. Every staff member at Shoreline shares that vision.”
In 2010, Circulatory Centers providers performed over 30,000 procedures, a 29% increase over 2009. Their documented success rate in eradicating varicose veins has remained at 97% over the past three years and 95% of all treatments are covered by insurance. Circulatory Center technicians perform duplex ultrasound studies on each patient and, as such, Circulatory Centers is accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (also achieved by Shoreline Vein Clinic & Medical Spa).
