IACAccreditation by the IAC means that John Happel MD has voluntarily undergone a thorough review of his vein center’s operational and technical components by a national panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those elite facilities that are found to excel by providing exceptional patient care, in full compliance with strict national standards after a comprehensive application process which includes a rigorous review of selected patient procedures.

Being the first and only nationally accredited vein treatment center in Pittsburgh makes our vein office unique from other vein centers. This qualification ensures universally mandated standards of excellence.

Dr. John Happel

He has the hands-on experience, the expertise and the proper training to treat your varicose veins with exactly the right procedures for your specific vein problem. Like in the wizard of Oz, when you pull back the curtain, the doctor at your friendly nearby vein clinic may not be as advertised. Most people don’t understand that all Pittsburgh varicose vein clinic doctors are not the same. Choosing the right vein specialist is what makes the difference between safe and unsafe vein treatments and between good and bad outcomes.
