Angel P. Mercado PA-C, MSPAS received his certification as a Physician Assistant in 2011. He obtained state licensure in New York, and began an intensive career in Emergency Medicine. Like MD’s and DO’s, a PA must apply to obtain state licensure through the board of medicine, and are required to complete 100 continuing medical education (CME) hours every two years.

In 2016, Angel’s career turned to vascular medicine, working with an Interventional Radiologist and receiving training in ultrasound diagnostics, as well as the specialized techniques crucial to expert varicose and spider vein care. After obtaining his Florida licensure, Angel’s years of experience practicing minimally invasive venous treatments using ultrasound-guided techniques made him the perfect candidate to become the Vein Specialist at Medicus Vein Care.
