San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
The American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM), formerly known as The American Board of Phlebology (ABPh) has recently completed its seventh exam cycle specializing in Venous & Lymphatic Medicine and utilizing the PearsonVue® testing centers in the United States and Canada.
With this class of diplomates, the ABVLM has now awarded diplomate status to 675 practitioners within the United States and Canada.
It is with great pride that we announce the addition of Dr. Malvehy to this group of diplomates. His certification with the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine is a direct reflection of his skill, knowledge, and experience in providing quality patient care, and his continued commitment to the advancement of vein care. To become ABVLM certified is truly an accomplishment. Less than 1% of all vein care professionals in the U.S. and Canada have earned certification from the ABVLM.
To become an ABVLM diplomate, an applicant must complete the requisite training and experience qualifications, meet the continuing medical education requisites, and pass a stringent certification examination. Certification periods are ten years and maintenance is dependent on the ability of the diplomate to display competency in four areas of assessment: evidence of professional standing, evidence of commitment to lifelong-learning and periodic self-assessment, evidence of cognitive expertise, and evaluation of performance in practice.
Dr. Malvehy serves patients in the greater Miami area with offices in Miami Beach and Coral Gables. He offers the only dedicated, comprehensive vein practice in either Miami Beach or Coral Gables. Dr. Malvehy provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for spider veins, varicose veins and venous insufficiency. He offers customized treatment options for patients including laser vein treatment, sclerotherapy, VeinWave for facial veins and minimally invasive surgical options. All treatments are performed in-office with no downtime.
