Daniel L. Monahan, M.D.

Specialty: Board Certified in General Surgery and Phlebology, specializing in treatment of vein disorders. Education: UC Davis, BA, Zoology, 1976. Medical School: University of Hawaii, 1981, M.D. Memberships: American Venous Forum; American College of Surgeons, American College of Phlebology. Personal Achievement: Marrying my wife, adopting my kids. Spearing a 100+ lbs. grouper while free-diving in Baja. (These are ‘gifts’ more than ‘achievements’.) Professional Achievement: Published a research project which changed the understanding of varicose veins and treatment. Innovations: I treat varicose and spider veins in stages, reducing the amount and cost, resultant problems and improving results. All the most current knowledge and technology are used in our evaluation and treatment of patients with venous disorders. Bedside Manner: Patients frequently say ours is the friendliest medical office they have ever been to. We treat people personally, with compassion, and the best possible evaluation and treatment. Off Hours: Golf, fly-fishing, reading. Charitable Work: Long-time member of the area YoungLife committee; participate in YoungLife activities. Lead adult Sunday school classes at Valley Springs Church. Advice: Varicose veins and spider veins are abnormal. When treatment is called “cosmetic”, it doesn’t mean “vanity.” It’s not vanity to dislike the appearance of abnormal veins. They get worse over time if not treated. You’ll be happy you had them treated.
