McFarland Vein Clinic physician, Firas Salti, MD will be offering free vein screenings in Ames on April 28, from 4 to 6 p.m. Dr. Salti is a certified vein specialist and certified in internal medicine.

Salti offers medical treatment of leg vein disease, including spider veins and varicose veins. If you suffer from chronic leg pain, burning or itching, restless legs, leg fatigue, leg swelling or leg ulcers, you may have vein disease and could benefit from a free vein screening.
