Dr. Valerie Purcell has joined Horizon Surgical Specialists as a Vascular Medicine physician. Dr. Purcell is board-certified and has been in clinical practice since 1991, while taking off several years to raise three beautiful girls. She has received special training in the diagnosis and treatment of arterial and venous disease and is very enthusiastic about helping her patients with medical management of vascular problems, including medication, exercise and lifestyle changes. She coordinates any medical changes with patients’ primary care providers and has a particular interest in diagnosing previously unrecognized cardiovascular conditions that may place patients at risk for premature death or disability. Horizon Surgical Specialists is excited about this addition to our group and delighted to be able to add specialty vascular medicine to our armamentarium.
