“I am committed to helping the public and medical professionals to better understand vein health so that we can improve the quality of patients’ lives!”

Alison Scheib, PA-C – Physician Assistant


Alison Scheib

Ali worked in Primary Care for 15 years before joining the Vein Healthcare Center in 2015. She performs most of the sclerotherapy procedures at the practice and sees patients for post-operative visits and general follow-up appointments.

Ali explains to patients what procedures will be performed and why and what they can expect afterward. She understands that procedures and injections can be scary for some patients, so she takes her time to listen to patients and address their concerns.


“I love listening to the stories from patients about how vein treatment has improved every aspect of their lives – more energy, less pain, and increased confidence in how their legs look and feel.”

Daphne Braden, MSN, FNP-C – Nurse Practitioner


Daphne Braden

Daphne joined the Vein Healthcare Center after four years of experience in community health and primary care with a special focus in women’s health. She received her Master’s of Science in Nursing at Simmons College in Boston.

As a Nurse Practitioner at VHC, Daphne meets with new patients to review their medical history, perform a physical exam, and discuss their health goals. She also performs sclerotherapy and conducts post-operative visits with patients.

Daphne acknowledges that many people can feel nervous about vein care, so she tries to be a calming presence to put patients at ease.


“Our practice provides a unique opportunity to offer both physical and emotional comfort, in many cases resolving physical or emotional pain that may have gone on for years.”

Robin Dobrinick, FNP-C - Nurse Practitioner


Robin Dobrinick

Robin studied at the University of Southern Maine where she received her Master’s of Science in Nursing. Before joining the team at VHC, she was a Primary Care Provider at a large group family practice in Maine.

Robin meets new patients to review their medical history, perform physical exams, and discuss their concerns and goals particularly as they relate to venous health. She also meets with patients for post-operative visits as well as performing sclerotherapy procedures.

First and foremost, Robin always strives to listen to patients. She believes that biological, social, and psychological histories are all interconnected and essential to understanding patients so that she and the care team can address patients’ concerns and recommend treatments that align with their goals of care.


“While venous insufficiency is a very specific medical condition, its impacts on affected individuals are vast. Every day, I look forward to helping patients realize the benefits of treatment.”
