We are proud to be working with Dr. Armen Roupenian, in our clinic, for the treatment of Varicose veins, Spider Veins, Restless leg and Chronic Venous Insufficiency.
Nearly 40% of the population suffer from Varicose Veins. Further, it has been shown that women are three times more likely to have Varicose Veins than men. These painful unsightly veins don't have to ruin your self esteem or hinder your ability to enjoy day to day life. In just a few visits, Dr. Roupenian can treat your Varicose Veins right here in our office.
Dr. Roupenian is a Board Certified Surgeon and Phlebologist who has practiced general and vascular surgery for over 25 years. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts Medical School and he completed his residency at the Boston Medical Center, training at Universy and Boston City Hospitals with graduate training at the University of Graz in Austria.
In 2011 he underwent recertification with the American Board of Surgery. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Phlebology and is an Item Writer for the Board Examination.
As an active member of the American College of Phlebology, he serves as a Preceptor for their Physician Training Program as well as a member of the Board of Directors at the American College of Phlebology Foundation.
Dr. Roupenian is a member of the American Venous Forum, serving on the National Venous Screening Committee. He is also a member of the German Society of Phlebology, attending their annual meetings.
Effective March 17, 2014, after more than a decade of allowing us to do so, Premera BCBS will no longer permit us to bill for any lab services. This change applies to any medical practice which contracts with an outside lab service.
What this means to you is after March 17th you may receive two separate bills for your services: Your normal bill from Medical Park Family Care for your visit, in addition to a bill from Quest Diagnostics specifically for any lab services performed.
This is a change that will take time for Medical Park, Quest Diagnostics, and most importantly you as the patient, to adjust to. We will do our best to keep you informed if there is a lab that is not covered by Premera BCBS; however it would be in your best interest to also reach out to Premera BCBS to double check your coverage before labs are completed during your visit.
If you have questions about your lab bill we encourage you to contact Quest Labs and/or Premera BlueCross/BlueShield of Alaska, as we (MPFC) will not have access to your lab account.
If you have any questions about this process please feel free to contact our office.
