Groundhog Day 2015 = Six More Weeks of Varicose Veins in Mechanicsburg

It’GroundhogDayPix_600ws about 175 miles as the crow flies from Gobbler’s Knob, Pennsylvania over here to Mechanicsburg in central PA. How long it would take a groundhog to get here is anybody’s guess.

Because Groundhog Day was the day after all that Super Bowl hype and also coincided with another huge East Coast blizzard, you may not have heard that Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow again this year, which predicts six more weeks of winter.

In fact, since 1887, Phil has seen his shadow 102 times (including this year) and has not seen his shadow just 17 times.

At Calcagno & Rossi Vein Treatment Center, we’re vascular experts — not meteorologists. So while you may experience six more weeks of wintry weather, you’ll probably be covering up your bulging, swollen, painful varicose veins with heavy sweat pants, long skirts, long pants or tights.

But we think this is actually a great time to take the first step to finally do something about your varicose veins, which are a sign of venous insufficiency. And that means scheduling a free screening with Dr. David Calcagno or Dr. John Rossi who are double board-certified surgeons, both fellowship-trained, and the most experienced vein experts in central PA.

The next free screenings are Tuesday, March 24th & Wednesday, March 25th, 2015, 12 Noon – 7:00 pm at 2025 Technology Pkwy, Ste. 304, Mechanicsburg, PA 17050.

Please call 717-791-2800 today to schedule your appointment for 3/24 or 3/25. Then be prepared to show off your legs this spring. Our minimally invasive varicose vein procedures are quick, done right in our offices, have little to no downtime, and most are covered by your insurance.
