Vein and Cardiovascular Services

Vascular Consultations

Vein issues that can lead to DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) are often uncomfortable and unsightly. Conditions such as varicose veins, spider veins, discoloration, and swelling may be painful as well. Contact our brand-new Heart of Dixie location to schedule an appointment. Together we can discuss treatment options and discover how we can best improve your health.

Cardiovascular Consultations

PAD, or Peripheral Artery Disease, can make life miserable for those that suffer from clogging or narrowing of arteries. If you experience cramping, tiredness, and aching pain in your legs while walking or climbing stairs, PAD may be the issue. At Heart of Dixie, we treat many different types of cardiovascular issues. Give us a call and schedule an appointment for a consultation about your quality of life.

Vein and Vascular Diagnostic Tests and Treatments

Rule-Out DVT Scans

Blood clots in the legs often go undetected and untreated. If you have symptoms related to venous insufficiency or DVT, we can use ultrasound to reveal any blood clots. Additionally, receiving a rule-out DVT scan with us will cost you almost ⅔ less than scheduling an appointment at a major hospital.

Vein Mapping

It can be difficult to identify exactly where veins are most weakened or damaged. In the case of deep veins, we offer complete vein mapping to find the specific areas that are experiencing insufficient blood flow. Once we discover the offending veins, we can more easily give you an idea of the appropriate treatment option.          

Treatment of Acute and Chronic DVT

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can be uncomfortable, painful, and even life-threatening. With our assistance, we can create a treatment plan to solve your immediate issues and prevent future vein problems.

Treatment of Venous Insufficiency

Venous insufficiency can lead to the unsightly and discolored symptoms of varicose veins, spider veins, and ulcers. Schedule an appointment with Heart of Dixie today, and we can eliminate the majority of the cosmetic symptoms. If your legs are itchy, aching, painful, and sore, come into our office, and we can help resolve your vein diagnoses.

“I would not hesitate to refer friends and family to this facility. I consider it a great advantage to have relief from my symptoms associated with varicose veins. It was my pleasure to see Dr. Jamison Jones, he was most pleasant, professional, and accommodating. Within a few hours of my first procedure I could feel a marked difference in the way my legs felt, mainly an absence of fatigue which I had felt for years. I'm very happy with my decision to seek treated at Heart of Dixie Vein and Vascular Center. It was a great advantage for me to have easy access to this kind of treatment. Frankly I would have driven anywhere to get help, to think I only had to go to St.George was a miracle. I would rate this facility a 5/5!”

Cardiac Diagnostic Tests and Treatments


An echocardiogram is a non-intrusive procedure that utilizes ultrasound to see how much blood is flowing through the heart. An echocardiogram can even discover specific information about your heart’s chambers, valves, walls, and blood vessels. It also measures if the amount is appropriate and whether additional tests are needed.

Bubble Echocardiogram

An additional type of echocardiogram, the bubble echocardiogram, uses a mixture of saltwater and tiny air bubbles to reveal additional information about the flow of blood through the heart. Ultrasound follows the tiny bubbles through the heart’s chambers to discover if the heart has any holes or openings. In case you are concerned about the bubbles, they filter to the lungs harmlessly, giving our staff an even clearer picture of proper or improper blood flow.

Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound

The aorta is the largest artery in the human body and travels from the legs, through the abdomen, and to the heart. Aneurysms can occur because of clogging or blood clots, which are incredibly life-threatening. If vein issues or heart irregularities give any clues, early detection can save your life.

Carotid Ultrasound

In addition to the aorta, the carotid arteries that lead to the brain can also carry blood clots through the veins to cause aneurysms and stroke. We use ultrasound to discover any clots or blockages in the arteries that may give any signs of trouble.

Ankle-Brachial Index

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) can be detected by comparing the flow of blood of the upper arm to the ankles of each leg. Through this test, we can discover any irregular build-ups of plaque within important veins and arteries.

Peripheral Arterial Ultrasound

To further diagnose PAD, ultrasound can be used to discover irregular blood flow, plaque build-up, and other cardiac problems. The procedure is non-invasive because it maps out your arteries and veins with sound.


To minimize the chances of heart attacks, EKGs can monitor the electrical impulses that control the heart’s rhythm. Just like ultrasound, the procedure is non-invasive and takes little time.

Stress Test

To better study your cardiovascular system during activity, our clinic features stress testing with treadmills, stress echo, and nuclear stress testing to identify specific areas of the body where blood flow is restricted. This testing is also much more affordable and effective than what you would find in a hospital setting.

Holter Monitor (24-hour or 48-hour)

To study your heart and blood flow for a longer time, our specialists may issue you a Holter monitor. This device works like an EKG machine that should be worn for a 24- to 48-hour period. With information from this portable EKG, our specialists will have a clearer picture of the heart’s rhythm during different activity levels and times of the day.

21-Day Cardiac Event Monitor

In case cardiac issues are of greater concern, you may be given a cardiac monitor for long-period testing. Our specialists will have a clearer understanding of your heart’s irregular rhythm after using the 21-day cardiac event monitor.

PAD Treatment

Heart of Dixie Vein and Vascular Center is dedicated to helping our patients solve their PAD diagnoses and improve their circulatory health to prevent serious issues such as aneurysms and heart attacks. We invite anyone who believes they are at risk of circulatory problems to make an appointment for a consultation. Call us today!

“The Doctors, Nurses and staff at Heart of Dixie are the best in St. George. They are extremely knowledgeable and professional in every way. The new facility is beautiful Would highly recommend this practice to those who are looking for state of the art treatment.”
