Dr. Anthony D. Alfieri, DO, FACC is an interventional cardiologist in the New Castle County area. For 25 years, Dr. Alfieri practiced interventional cardiology, placing stents in people's hearts. During that time, Dr. Alfieri noticed many of his patients that he treated has severe vein disease and the treatment at the time seemed to be inadequate. He took it upon himself to undergo the study of vein disease, which is known as Phlebology. While Phlebology has been around for some time, this field has been emerging with new and innovative techniques to treat varicose veins. In 2008, Dr. Alfieri opened the Delaware Advanced Vein Center where he treats patients with venous insufficiency. He encourages his patients to not be limited by an apprehension of misinformation especially when they are living with a treatable and preventable condition such as varicose veins, especially since in most cases the treatment is covered by most insurances. Today, Delaware Advanced Vein Center is the largest vein center in Delaware.
