Whether you are a patient or a referring physician, you need to be able to depend on care that is current, safe, effective, and tailored to the individual needs of each patient. At our center, we provide that kind of care.

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 Cincinnati, we are committed to superior service and delivering far more. Our patients can expect:

Prompt appointments For dialysis access management patients, Azura Vascular Care Cincinnati 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 Cincinnati 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.
