Jeremy R Hopkin, MD - Physician
Dr. Hopkin was born in New York and was raised in Texas and Utah. He attended the University of Utah for medical school where he discovered that he loved anatomy, physics and performing procedures. A residency in diagnostic and interventional radiology was perfect for him! He completed residency at Dartmouth where he received a large volume of training in image guided procedures, including the latest in minimally invasive image guided treatment of varicose vein disease. After completing an additional year of fellowship at the Barrow Neurological Institute he accepted a job in St. George and began working at Red Sands Vein and Laser institute. He and his wife Ali and son Kaleb love living in southern Utah for its nature, weather and small town atmosphere.
In addition to treating varicose vein disease at Red Sands, he is also the Head of Neuroradiology for the IHC and executive committee member for St. George Radiology where he helps drive quality patient care in imaging.
In his spare time, he loves doing all outdoor activities, Olympic lifting and gymnastics. He trains athletes of all ages (when he can fit in the time!) at Crossfit St. George and loves to change lives through activity and diet as well as treating venous disease. For him, nothing is as good as a nice day hiking in southern Utah with his family and dogs followed by a crossfit workout and a huge healthy dinner!
Dr. Hopkin believes in providing the highest quality care in treatment of varicose vein disease regardless of whether it is treatment of spider veins or treatment of complicated venous disease with skin ulcers. You should always seek out a vein clinic that uses the latest technology, provides a full spectrum of treatments and whose physicians have had dedicated training in ultrasound guided procedures. In this regard radiologists are ideally trained. Other medical specialists such as OB/Gyn, surgeons and cardiologists who may also perform vein ablations have not received dedicated training in this area and in general have a lesser degree of confidence in performing these procedures safely and effectively. Strongly consider getting a second opinion if another physician who performs venous procedures suggests invasive surgery or ablation alone for treatment. Comprehensive treatment most often entails a wider spectrum of treatment including sclerotherapy, and ambulatory phlebectomy.
