General Information

Heartcare Center

Our patients are interested in preserving their cardiovascular health and also desire to maintain their aesthetics. The revolution in medical technology has brought formerly hospital based technology to the office. Many of the procedures we offer are performed in less then an hour with little or no discomfort. Most patients return directly to work.

As always, our Heartcare Center physician provides the therapeutic treatments - not an assistant, technician or nurse (in many other well known facilities an assistant provides the treatments).

Dr. Salerno has traveled and trained in vascular and aesthetic centers across the United States to blend what we feel is the best approach for our patients. He is one of the first 250 physicians in the United States to be certified by the American Board of Phlebology.

In addition, we are constantly continuing to learn new techniques and accrue the latest knowledge by memberships or participation in educational activities from organizations such as the American College of Phlebology, American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, American College of Cosmetic Surgery, International Society of Endovascular Specialists, International Society of Cosmetic Laser Surgeons and the Society for Vascular Ultrasoun
