From the desk of Dr. Todd Hansen:

Steve & I both grew up in Minnesota, but did not meet until Residency at Wake Forest University/North Carolina Baptist Hospital in the early 1990s. We share a similar biography in many ways beyond the MN connection, including both serving as Chief Residents during our Emergency Medicine training, working for Mid-Atlantic Emergency Medical Associates (MEMA) in Charlotte, NC, and both serving as President and CEO of MEMA. We both married amazing women and have 3 great kids, and are now excited to continue as friends and colleagues in our new venture providing full service, comprehensive, premium quality Vein Care to the Lake Norman area.
