Emanuel Papadakis, RVT, RDMS - Technical Director

 

Emanuel Papadakis

Manny is a registered diagnostic cardiac sonographer (RDCS) and registered vascular technologist (RVT) through the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), the main accreditation organization for sonographers.

Manny’s role is to produce vein mappings that help the physician create a treatment plan and to provide ultrasound guidance for ablations and sclerotherapy. When working with patients, he listens closely to where their sources of discomfort are so he can perform a better vein mapping, which will result in a better outcome. He also tries to connect with patients and get to know them a bit more on a personal level, making for a more comfortable and less intimidating visit.

Prior to VHC, he worked as a Cardiovascular and Vein Lab Technical Director for 10 years. His background includes providing an array of diagnostic imaging tests, including stress testing, echocardiography, and general vascular and vein specialized procedures.

 

“Knowing that I make a difference in a patient’s health is very rewarding. I have seen patients that have chronic leg swelling, heavy legs with achiness, and even ulcerations. Providing the guidance required to treat the patient is rewarding since I have assisted in the patient’s overall treatment and quality of life.”

Brad Roberts RVT, RDMS

Brad is a Vascular Ultrasound Technician who provides vein mapping at the Vein Healthcare Center, as well as assisting on vein ablation and sclerotherapy procedures. Prior to joining the practice, Brad spent three years as an Ultrasonographer at Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford and seven years as a Vascular Technologist at MMP MaineHealth Cardiology in Scarborough.

Brad does his best to make patients as comfortable as possible, treating each person as though they are a member of his own family. He talks to patients and helps them understand why the ultrasound is necessary for vein care and explains the ultrasound mapping process and how veins and venous blood flow work.

 

“I especially like seeing a patient from start to finish to see how we helped alleviate their symptoms and vein issues.”

Holly Murphy, RDMS

Holly is a Vascular Ultrasound Technician at VHC, performing venous mapping for reflux and other issues through ultrasound imaging. She received training at the American Institute of Diagnostical Medical Sonography in Hartford, Connecticut and has seven years’ experience performing venous and arterial ultrasounds in large hospital and emergency room settings.

Holly is most interested in trying to figure out every patient’s story, then telling their story through imaging. She does this by getting to know the patient and learning what their experience has been and where they’re feeling discomfort.

 

“I keep an open mind, ask lots of questions, and really try to understand where the patient is coming from so I can help them solve their problem.”

Keila Connolly, Provider Support Specialist

Lauren has always had a passion for medicine and helping people, and she works hard to make patients feel seen and heard.

“Working with such a competent and incredible group of people, makes our days here very fun and rewarding. But the best part is seeing how vein treatments make patients feel relief from their physical discomforts and feel more comfortable in their own skin.”

Delaney does her best to make each person as comfortable and cared for as possible. She finds that establishing a relationship makes for a better experience overall.

 

“I love seeing patients’ before and after photos. Like with athletic training, it’s so rewarding to see a patient’s journey from injury to feeling better, to be a part of that progression as we see the same patients over time.”
