Heidi Bennett, LPN is our Vascular Studies Specialist.  These tests are performed in our quiet, comfortable office setting.  You do not have to be a patient of Dr. Jernigan’s to have one of these tests.  However, most insurances do require that your primary care doctor requests the test to be performed.


These tests include:


Venous Reflux Studies – this test will determine if you have venous reflux, a common cause of varicose veins.


Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) – this test will tell if you have any circulation issues.


Segmental Limb Blood Pressure (SLBP) or Non-invasive Arterial Study -  this test is a more in-depth study of the ABI.  It will not only show if you have any circulation issues, but pinpoint where the issue begins.
