Stephen R. Bunker, MD

Varicose Vein Treatment Doctor Stephen R-bunker“I became a physician because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of others. And throughout the decades that I’ve been a physician, I’ve remained completely focused on and dedicated to this objective. My mission has always been to become ever more knowledgeable, capable, skilled and effective so that others can live better, more productive and fulfilling lives. This is the engine behind my longstanding tradition of innovation and leading-edge care.

Yet, what I do is all about compassion. Just as I’ve been a researcher, clinical professor and department chief, my commitment to offering the most advanced and effective vein care is an expression of total focus on doing what’s best for you. I put my heart into everything I do — as I always have — because I care. Simply put, I am passionately dedicated to your best interests.”
