American Physician was started in August of 2007 in response to the Albert Vein Institute and Dr. James Albert in particular being unhappy with his billing services. Seeing a potential opportunity, we created American Physician and decided we would specialize in venous billing. We assumed, correctly it turned out, that if one physician was having these difficulties there should be others also. Our first three phlebology clients, the Albert Vein Institute, Ciao Bella Medical Spa, and Elite Vein are still our clients to this day.
We currently have 22 employees taking care of practices throughout the United States. We also serve as a billing consulting service for two different large device manufacturers.
Much as our physicians specialize in the rather narrow niche of peripheral vascular surgeries, we believe it is important for us as well. American Physician only seeks out business in this same field.
