At Zel Skin & Laser Specialists, Dr. Rizvi and Zel’s medical director, Brian Zelickson, MD, will provide a comprehensive vein care program including diagnosis of leg pain, endovenuous procedures, sclerotherapy, treatment for varicose veins and laser vein procedures. Consultations, screenings, and surgical and laser treatments will be available on-site at Zel Skin & Laser Specialists in Edina.
