Committed to Excellent Patient Care for Over a Decade

With over 10 years of specialized service, Preferred Vascular Group (PVG) has become synonymous with outstanding care in a state-of-the-art setting. They boast of 70,000 procedures performed, supported by tens of thousands of office and diagnostic visits. The dedicated physicians and modern centers stand as testaments to PVG’s unwavering commitment to their patients.

A History of Success in Atlanta

Founded in 2011 by the team behind Preferred Medical Group, PVG started with two clinics focusing on vascular interventional needs for dialysis patients. With the esteemed Dr. John “Ted” Perry, MD, serving as the Chief Medical Officer, the company soon became a respected name in Atlanta’s medical community.

Between 2012 and 2016, PVG expanded its reach. The transition to licensed ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) in 2017 marked a significant change in their operating model. That same year saw further expansion with two more Atlanta-based centers. Since 2019, PVG has successfully run 6 fully-equipped ASCs, with Medicare approval and AAAHC accreditation.

Introducing Preferred Fibroid and Vascular Center (PFVC)

The culmination of PVG’s success in vascular care led to the establishment of PFVC, focusing on pelvic health, including the treatment of uterine fibroids. Operating in Dunwoody and Camp Creek, PFVC provides women with access to uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), a minimally invasive and highly effective treatment for fibroids.

UFE: A Beacon of Hope for Fibroid Patients

Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) is performed by skilled interventional radiologists and involves blocking the blood flow to the fibroids, causing them to shrink and eventually disappear. UFE’s benefits, including shorter recovery times and lesser post-procedure discomfort, have made it a preferred treatment for many women suffering from fibroids.

The launch of PFVC, dedicated to UFE, is set to make this transformative procedure more accessible to women in the region. The expanded capability of PFVC’s 6 state-of-the-art ASC’s promises to cater to a larger patient demographic.
