Suffolk has a brand new medical practice offering relief for people suffering with varicose veins and facial problems, and Mayor E. Dana Dickens III took part Friday in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the facility – Genesis Aesthetic Face & Vein Specialists.

Dickens joined Dr. Keith Nichols of Genesis Aesthetic Face and Vein Specialists; Burt Cutwright, asset manager for Becco Construction, and Lynne Rhodes, property manager for the grand opening of the new medical center.

The new facility is located in Suite 100 at 1500 Breezeport Way, Harbour Breeze Professional Center in northern Suffolk.

With 16 years experience as an emergency room doctor in Martinsville, Keith Nichols, M.D. became keenly aware of the problems of varicose veins.

Having watched his patients suffer with the rashes, pain and swelling caused by the ailment, Nichols began to research how problem veins were treated. Medically, these are treated through the practice of phlebology.

Now, more than a year after opening a phlebology and facial aesthetic medical practice in Martinsville, Nichols decided to bring his medical expertise to assist the people of Hampton Roads.

For details on Genesis call 686-9747, or call toll-free (866) 686-VEIN (8346). Genesis is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday with special hours by appointment.
