Types of Blood Vessels Our bodies carry have a complex system of vessels (or pipes) that carry blood, oxygen and nutrients to different parts of the body. Arteries carry blood flow away from the heart and help deliver oxygen to parts of your body. Veins carry blood flow back to…
Do you have venous disease? Venous disease is a type of blood disorder that occurs when small blood vessels in the legs become swollen with fluid and narrow. This causes them to develop clots. Over time, these clots can cause swelling in the veins, putting pressure on the veins’ valves…
"I recently had a Uterine Fibroid Embolization with National Vascular Physicians, and the care I received was outstanding in every way.
Dr. Kim is everything you hope to find in a physician. He is a nationally renowned expert in his field with many years of experience performing these procedures. He is also kind, empathetic, patient, approachable, and extremely generous with his time and information. At each of our appointments, Dr. Kim spent 30-60 minutes with me, giving me his complete and undivided attention from start to finish. He never ended a visit or conversation until all my questions had been answered.
I left every appointment with Dr. Kim feeling confident in my decision to have him perform my UFE, engaged in my healthcare, and hopeful that a solution to my problematic fibroid symptoms was within reach. NVP’s medical and office staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Their follow through on items such as prescriptions, appointment scheduling, an MRI order, and a doctor’s excuse for work was flawless. The office itself is calm, clean, modern, and new, and is equipped with the latest medical technology for patients’ safety and wellbeing.
The day of my UFE went as well as I could have hoped. I encountered no other patients during my visit, which afforded me privacy and also made me feel that I had the entire staff’s focus and attention while I was there. Dr. Kim took the time to speak with me right before the procedure to address my last minute concerns and answer my final questions. The UFE itself went quickly and smoothly. I chose not to be sedated for it so was able to observe the whole procedure firsthand and talk to Dr. Kim while he was working. Dr. Kim’s nurse Nicole took excellent care of me in the recovery room, and Dr. Kim stopped in to check on me himself several times.
My recovery was very easy - much easier than I had expected, thanks largely to Dr. Kim’s recovery protocol and the suggestions he and Nicole made to help me prevent a few issues that can arise. Four days after the procedure, I returned to work and I have been feeling great ever since.
My fibroid symptoms have already improved dramatically, and I am thrilled that I decided to go ahead with the UFE at National Vascular Physicians. I would give Dr. Kim and his staff ten stars if I could, and would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone in need of the medical services they provide. Thank you, Dr. Kim and everyone else at NVP!"

"Dr. Lynskey is extraordinary. My wife, Lucia, has an extremely complicated medical history. We have worked with wonderful doctors at several top hospitals.
Our experience with Dr. Emmett Lynskey has, however, been truly remarkable. Dr. Lynskey, as he has noted, can spend the time needed with a patient to listen, care, and truly understand their needs because he has chosen to have his own practice rather than work, as he had for years, in a hospital setting which did not give him that freedom. Our experience is that it makes a huge difference to the patient!
The staff, the surroundings, the lack of bureaucratic pressure are all positive reasons to go to NVP.
Dr. Lynskey accepts the challenge of difficult cases. He explains what he wants to do and why, and makes sure you understand it too before going forward. We absolutely recommend this practice to anyone in need of the services they offer."

Dr. Kim, Nurse Nicole, and the entire staff were absolutely amazing! They made me feel comfortable and informed during the entire process from the initial consultation to the execution of the procedure. Not only that, but they were able to get me in as soon as possible. After my procedure, the office followed up to see if I had any questions or concerns in a timely manner. I would recommend them again and again!

I would highly recommend the doctors and staff at NVP. The office is easy to access and most importantly you feel relaxed and calm once you enter. The office staff is friendly, caring and knowledgeable. Most importantly, I was impressed with Dr. Linskey's ability to explain all aspects of the Uterine Fibroid Embolization in a manner that was understandable. He made the complex simple! I felt comfortable asking clarifying questions and I never felt rushed during an appointment. I always felt as though I had his full and complete undivided attention. I truly believe my UFE was so successful due to the thorough explanation of what would occur throughout every stage. Because I had that understanding I was able to fully relax and I was completely prepared for all aspects of the UFE. I know the office sees a number of patients, however I left feeling as if I was the most important and the only patient they cared for that day. All attention was focused on my needs both prior to the UFE and during recovery. Details matter to me, and the staff at NVP are very detailed oriented. Little things like the phone charging station in the waiting room, the calm and relaxing music that helped to provide the serene environment and the phone calls after the procedure to check in with me shows the degree to which they care about their patients. Dr. Linskey and his team did an outstanding job!
