Dr. Mayer Katz, board certified in vascular surgery, has joined Beebe Medical Group’s newly formed Beebe Vascular.

A satellite location of Beebe Vascular also has opened in Ocean View and is planned for Millsboro and Milford.  The central office continues to be in Lewes and the telephone number there is (302) 644-4954.

Dr. Katz is joined in the practice by Dr. Carlos Neves and Dr. Sean Ryan, both fellowship-trained in vascular and endovascular surgery.
