PUEBLO, Colo. – RMVI Services, a medical management company that oversees a network of clinics that diagnose and treat people with venous disease, announces that two of its doctors, Thomas E. Eidson, DO, and Timothy Cawlfield, MD, have become Diplomats of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM).
To become a Diplomat, both physicians had to pass board certification in the field of vein care (phlebology). These board certifications validate that both physicians met rigorous standards of education, experience, and evaluation in the emerging field of phlebology. In order to become certified, both Dr. Eidson and Dr. Cawlfield had to voluntarily complete requisite training, meet continuing medical education requirements and pass a certification exam. Now that they have attained certification, they possess specialized knowledge that will benefit the patients they diagnose and treat.
“We could not be more pleased that Drs. Eidson and Cawlfield successfully pursued board certifications in vein care,” says Gordon F. Gibbs, M.D., Founder and Chief Medical Executive of RMVI. “These certifications demonstrate their commitment to and expertise in the field, and show that they’re willing to go the extra mile to exceed the level of professionalism our patients expect. RMVI congratulates them both for a job well done.”
Eidson is Associate Medical Director at Trinity Vein Institute in Arlington, Texas. Specializing in the treatment of vein disease, Eidson is licensed in both Colorado and Texas. He is also certified in family medicine with an emphasis on musculoskeletal medicine, and in addition to caring for patients at Trinity Vein Institute, Eidson is affiliated with the Medical Center of Arlington and is a 2008 graduate of the Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, Nevada.
“Working toward and receiving the ABVLM certification provided me with the additional insight and knowledge I wanted in order to best serve our patients,” Eidson said. “I’m proud to offer the very highest standard of care.”
Cawlfield, who serves as a phlebologist at Rocky Mountain Vein Institute in Pueblo and Cañon City, Colo., also specializes in the treatment of vein disease. He is a general practitioner licensed in Colorado and is also board certified in family medicine with a specialty in cardiovascular disease. Cawlfield is affiliated with Parkview Medical Center and graduated in 2004 from the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
“It feels great to have earned this additional board certification, and I know this credential will not only benefit our patients, but will help the entire network of vein clinics to build confidence in the services we provide and set the standard of excellence we believe in,” Cawlfield says.
ABVLM, formerly The American Board of Phlebology, is a nonprofit organization that was established in 2007 to improve the quality of medical practitioners and the care of patients related to venous disorders.
