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. MVI customizes treatments to specific patient needs, ranging from tiny spider veins to large varicosities with ulcerations. It uses only state-of-the-art technology and provides a highly trained, caring staff. All this prompted the State of Arizona Nursing Board to use 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 MVI Co-Founder, Terri Morrison, RN, BS

You won’t find caregivers in “scrubs” at MVI, only in professional attire. They also pride themselves on spending extraordinary time with each patient. The team spends three to fours hours educating each patient about anatomy and physiology, and the 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 MVI’s exceptional vein care, its patients enjoy unique personal services. During procedures, a nurse is always available to hold the patients’ hand, or tune in their favorite music videos.
MVI also employees full-time staff to help patients handle insurance filings. Morrison Vein Institute has contracts with Medicare primary and Blue cross Blue shield. As an out-of-network, fee-for-service provider, MVI is 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.
