About Me

My story

I've spent over 30 years researching, diagnosing, and treating patients with venous disease, and have pioneered many of the minimally invasive treatments used today. One of my main goals is to raise awareness of venous disease, as it is often overlooked and undertreated. I believe that everyone should have access to accurate information and the latest treatments available, and that's why I founded The Whiteley Clinic and The College of Phlebology. I'm passionate about helping patients achieve long-lasting results and improving their quality of life. If you or a loved one are struggling with venous disease, please don't hesitate to contact me. Together, we can make a difference.
