Vein Guys reopens Evans office

The Vein Guys have reopened three of its four offices, including the Evans location, after a Feb. 20 plane crash killed five staff members.


The Augusta-based Vein Care Pavilion of the South, the practice’s official name, began seeing patients Monday. Patients who had appointments during the last two weeks will be rescheduled within the next 30 days, according to a company news release.

The Vein Guys closed its four branches following the plane crash in Thomson, which killed Dr. Steven Roth, Lisa Volpitto, Kim Davidson, Tiffany Porter and Heidi McCorkle.

“Our employees are back to work, ready to reopen our doors,” Vein Guys Chief Operations Officer Kelly Vann said. “It was a difficult time and while we grieve for those we lost, we know the best way to remember them is to move forward in their memory.”

In addition to the office on Towne Center Drive in Evans, Vein Guys has reopened its Atlanta and Nashville, Tenn., offices. The Raleigh, N.C., location will remain closed until further notice, the release said.

There are four physicians who work for Vein Guys, with one stationed in Evans.

“We are very grateful to the Vein Guys physicians who have stepped up to the plate to ensure our patients continue to be treated,” Vann said. “We are making a full recovery.”
