Excellent Outcomes and Dedicated Vascular Care. Ever Closer to You.

Vascular Care of Greenville specializes in minimally invasive treatments for dialysis access management and other vascular conditions, including peripheral artery disease (PAD), uterine fibroids, varicoceles, and varicose veins which can be treated safely and effectively in an outpatient setting.

Using a minimally invasive approach and the latest image-guided technologies, highly trained vascular specialists replace open surgical procedures with just a skin nick or small incision, allowing for a faster recovery and a quicker return to normal daily activities.

Richard D. Blair, MD, board-certified medical director, is an interventional nephrologist who leads a team of physicians, including an interventional radiologist and interventional nephrologists.

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 Vascular Care of Greenville partners with your physician care team, focusing on coordinating your vascular care.

My first visit was changed without asking me for a different time. My follow up visit was also changed without any call to let me know. I live an hour away so this is 2 hours of my time, essentially half a day. I came on the day it was changed and the doc had left for the day. They said my appt was at 1:45 and I was told it was at 2:30 when the appt was made. The reminder call I received 2 days prior also said it was at 2:30. This is totally unacceptable and unprofessional for any physician practice or any business. I will not be recommending this practice to anyone. This negligence negates any benefit of treatment given. I may be reached by email.

If you can find somewhere else to go, then do. The scheduling, communication, front desk staff are all terrible. Both times my husband would arrive early for his appointment only to wait hours for his actual procedure. Patients are gowned and ready to go but wait hours and hours before they are rolled back for their procedure. Communication is almost non-existent. They would tell my husband different things regarding when to stop eating or drinking the day before. Also, for my husband's second procedure, they were closed around 2pm the day before and didn't provide my husband with the necessities he needed prior to his procedure. Then called me upset that I was not there to drive him. This procedure was supposed to be done without meds or being put under, so there was originally no need for me to drive him. Of course this all changed the day off. The front desk staff are extremely rude. As I waited in the waiting room for hours for my husband's procedure to begin, I watched them be rude to patient after patient. The day of my husband's first procedure was when Dorian was coming. All other businesses were open that Thursday, but they kept trying all they could to get out early. My husband's discharge was rushed and we were not provided all the information we needed. This facility is inefficiently run with rude and uncaring staff.

I brought my father in law in for his appointment at 1pm. We arrived early at 1240 and at 410 they had finally started. This is no communications with family members on status. There is no break room for people to have a beverage or snack while waiting for hours. The staff at the front desk act as if they could care less and are rude every time. This is the most unprofessional place I think I have ever been in for medical procedures or bringing someone else. I would never recommend this office to anyone.
