To help, Michael Kaplan, MD, and Robert Kamieniecki, MD, board certified interventional radiologists from The Vein Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center, are offering a free vein screening to community members. The screening will take place on Friday, April 5, 2013, at The Vein Center at Saint Barnabas, 101 Old Short Hills Road, Suite 302, West Orange, NJ 07052.
