About Us

Morrison Vein Institute earned its established worldwide reputation for leading-edge phlebology by focusing only on vein treatment, not diluting its work with any other procedures. We customize treatments to specific patient needs, ranging from tiny spider veins to large varicosities with ulcerations. Since we use only state-of-the-art technology and provide a highly trained, caring staff,  the State of Arizona Nursing Board now uses the Institute as a model in setting standards in sclerotherapy treatment by registered nurses.

“Patients often tell us, ‘I’ve done my research, I know who you are, and you’re the best.’ They also comment frequently on the warmth of our 5 certified registered nurses (RNs) and world-renown MD team,” said Morrison Vein Institute Co-Founder and CEO, Terri Morrison, RN, BS

You won’t find our caregivers in “scrubs” at Morrison Vein Institute, only in professional attire. We take pride in spending extraordinary time with each patient. Our team spends three to fours hours educating each patient about anatomy and physiology, then our doctors provide a diagnosis involving individualized ultrasound vein mapping derived from the best-available equipment.

“Every patient receives an extensive, customized, all-inclusive treatment plan,” Terri Morrison said. “We move forward with the procedure only when the patient is ready, whether that’s tomorrow or next fall.”

In addition to exceptional vein care, our patients enjoy unique personal services. During procedures, a nurse is always available to hold a hand or tune in a patient’s favorite music video.

At Morrison Vein, we employ a full-time staff to help patients handle insurance filings. We have contracts with Medicare Primary and Blue Cross Blue Shield. As an out-of-network, fee-for-service provider, we are not encumbered by third-party decisions, which cause treatment limitations and delays.

“Our success since 1995 has come not only because we remodel legs, but because we teach patients how to limit return visits by managing their genetic disorder,” said Terri Morrison. We are celebrating our 20th Anniversary dedicated to vein care only.

We have offices in Scottsdale and Tempe, Arizona. Visit our website for more info or call 866-GRT-LEGS  or 480-775-8460
