With the effects of COVID-19 on our community increasing each day, our primary concern has been on the health and well-being of our employees, patients and community.  While working in this critical, unprecedented time, we are making some adjustments to our schedule and the types of care we will be able to offer, as ordered by our governor.  Our practice is closed 3/30-4/3 due to a previously planned closure.  Beginning April 6th and until we receive further instruction, Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute will not be providing cosmetic procedures including sclerotherapy or vein wave spider vein treatments.  We will, however, continue seeing patients for more pressing medical concerns.  Any patients with a scheduled appointment will be contacted for discussion. Any patient, new or established, with any concern of leg pain or swelling or any current or previous history of skin ulcer should feel free to call for an evaluation. For the foreseeable future, our hours will be diminished and will often vary from day to day.  We will be in the office and checking phone messages daily, and the cell phone numbers for Dr. Cutchen and our office manager, Marilyn, are included on the voicemail for urgent matters. Although the upcoming weeks and months hold much uncertainty for each of us, we appreciate your continued commitment to Albuquerque Vein & Laser, and we look forward to resuming normal services as soon as safely possible.
