Our entire team is committed to our patients and referring physicians to offer an exceptional patient experience and excellent clinical outcomes to get patients back to their daily lives as quickly as possible.

Vascular care has evolved. It’s about choices.

People living with vascular conditions don’t want overnight stays in the hospital, lengthy recovery periods and scheduling issues. They want to return to their daily lives quickly. We deliver a different healthcare experience; one that is invested in people, communication and best-in-class care.  

At Azura Vascular Care Atlanta, we are committed to superior service and delivering far more. Our patients can expect:

Prompt appointments For dialysis access management patients, Azura Vascular Care Atlanta offers same day/next day appointments when at all possible, allowing you to return to dialysis quickly. Patients seeking treatment for other vascular conditions will experience convenient scheduling of appointments. At our center, patients avoid the complexities of a hospital admission and return home to recover that same day.

Exceptional patient care Patients encounter a team that is kind and respectful, never indifferent.  Individual needs are accommodated to ensure patients are comfortable and kept well-informed.

Efficient and customized communication The team at Azura Vascular Care Atlanta partners with your physician care team, focusing on coordinating your vascular care. Immediate post-procedure reports are sent to your referring physicians and comprehensive reports follow within 24 hours after the procedure.

Patient Education Our patients see us as partners working to find the best treatment to fit their individual needs in vascular care. Our online and printed materials are vital components of the patient experience and help patients to be well-informed about their health and available treatment options.

Lucretia and Diane were beyond AWESOME today!!!! They truly care about their patients and it shows in everything they do. I could not be more grateful for this incredible clinic and these two amazing nurses. I was receiving an IV at another clinic and they could not disconnect my picc line. This was a Friday afternoon and Lucretia and Diane waited for me as I drove across Atlanta on Super Bowl weekend with an IV attached to my arm. Immediately I was put at ease and nearly in tears at the care, concern and professionalism these two wonderful women gave me. A five star rating is not nearly enough for an establishment of this caliber with such remarkable professionals. I feel confident and cared for here like no other place. Thank you form my heart!!!

My doctor referred me here for fallopian tube recanalization, long story short, I was called days later saying that i couldn't have the procedure done there because the doctor hasn't done it in years and he basically doesn't remember it well.. I couldn't believe what i heard. So unprofessional if you ask me!!

Everyone was so friendly and nice. They make you feel so welcome. From the ladies at the front desk ( who by the way were awesome) to the nurse and the doctor's were amazing. They were so caring. That's the way a doctor's office is supposed to be. I would recommend them a thousand times over. Thank you so much for calming my mother fears and making her feel better. You all are the best.
