The Smart Choice: Vein Institute of the Desert
Dr. Joan Warren provides the finest experience personally and professionally. After 13 years of practice devoted to phlebology and completing thousands of procedures, Dr. Warren is very adept at eliminating varicose and spider veins. She was one of the first to write the American College of Phlebology certification boards, becoming one of 15 practitioners in California to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Phlebology . She was also among the first in the United States to train in the use of EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatments), and is recognized as an official physician trainer for other doctors.
In addition she is credentialed as a Registered Phlebology Sonographer. This certification lets you know a radiological professional is evaluating you.
She has been recognized by Consumers Research Council of America year after year as one of America’s Top Physicians in Phlebology.
Less than a year after SmartLipo™ or laser assisted liposuction was FDA approved in the United States, Dr. Warren was certified and has since safely completed hundreds of procedures. To date she has not had a single post operative infection.

You can count on a professional experience in a relaxed atmosphere under the care of Dr. Joan Warren.
