Opening the vein clinic


Dr. Charles Kent, M.D. and Linda Schank, R.N. opened Tallahassee Vein & Face Clinic in 1999. Our focus at the time was the treatment of spider veins. However, we soon realized the need for treatment of varicose veins, and that need involves more than just cosmetic appearance. We've seen that venous disease affects the ability to be active and to work, and it is something people learn to cope with, but it restricts their enjoyment of life. Initially we closed varicose veins with lasers. We changed methods after a time, deciding that Radio-frequency closure is a better option for our patients because of increased safety and comfort.


Ms. Schank has trained with several physicians in the administration of cosmetic treatments. Currently we offer Botox, Lipodissolve, and Facial Treatments at our clinic in addition to the treatment of veins.
