A decade of improving patients' lives

through clinical excellence and unparalleled service


Philadelphia, PA — Vascular Access Centers, LP, the largest independent integrated group of vascular access centers in the country, is excited to announce its 10-year anniversary as the leading provider of endovascular outpatient care.  Founded in 2005 with a better patient experience in mind, Dr. James McGuckin proved that enhanced patient care through clinical excellence and unparalleled service was, and still is, in high demand.

Prior to outpatient practices beginning to sprout up in the late 1990's, Interventionalists were largely restricted to hospital-based practices due to existing partnerships, hospital non-competes, or lack of technology.  In the early 2000's, the first chain of outpatient endovascular centers was established, of which Dr. McGuckin was a founding member.  Dr. McGuckin broke away in 2005 to establish Vascular Access Centers, LP. Now serving communities in 11 states and Washington, DC with 20 locations, Vascular Access Centers, LP has reached its 10-year milestone with over 160,000 patient encounters.

  • "I was so scared when I went to the center, but the staff made me feel so relaxed. Other doctors didn't know what they were going to do with me and they talked about having to redo my surgery. The doctor at Vascular Access Centers knew what to do. They fixed everything minimally invasively, which was great. They even helped me with arranging my transportation to the center so I didn't have to bother my family for a ride!"

    Melissa, VAC of Pittsburgh

  • "This is the best place to come for your legs. The doctor and staff are the greatest. Dr. McGuckin is professional and straightforward. My legs feel so much better. Even my friend from BINGO came here and she agrees with me! I was scared to come here but now I'm so glad I did because I have my legs back."

    Diane, Peripheral Vascular Institute of Philadelphia

  • "I have been coming to VAC for over 6 years. The thing I like best about VAC is that everyone is really nice. There is not one person who is not overly helpful and nice. I would recommend VAC to other people and here's the reason: If you ever have a problem - and they could have patients lined up in there, have a full schedule - they will help you out and get you in. Everyone is so nice and helpful…. They look out for you. I have had a couple PAD screening tests by VAC as well, and they are making sure the blood flow in my legs is fine."

    George, VAC of Eatontown

  • "I have been a patient at the VAC of Eatontown since 2012. All of the Doctors are fantastic, the nurses are great, and the front desk is so welcoming. I love Gina and Phil. They are the best! They help me feel relaxed by decreasing my anxiety about having a procedure done. I would recommend to anyone to go to the VAC center. They treat you like family."

    Brian, VAC of Eatontown

  • "I love it at the Vascular Access Center. I love the staff, they are so professional. Everyone is so compassionate. I love the way they treat you. You are more than a patient – they care about you. A nurse said to me, 'I will hold your hand if you want me to.' When you walk in, you know that whoever is there is going to do their best for you. I am so appreciative of that. Now when I go to VAC, I am relaxed because they take care of you. I'm thankful and that is a wonderful thing for me. The VAC is the best thing to come around!"

    Sharon, VAC of Eatontown

"I really like going to Vascular Access Center because they are very helpful and caring. They are patient and very understanding and the center is always neat and clean. I appreciate the fact that they call you the next day after your procedure and follow up on your well-being. They are excellent in providing service and emergency appointments when there is an issue. All the employees are great assets to the center. I really love Dr. Simon, Sharon (Center Manager), and the whole staff."

James, VAC of West Orange

"I am very fortunate to have Dr. McGuckin because he is the best Vascular doctor in the world…and I have seen many! He saved my leg and made life worth living. The staff is great, warm, and friendly. Thanks!"

Rosalie, Pen Argyl Vascular Institute

"The staff at VAC were very helpful from checking in to their post surgical care. They made me feel welcome and comfortable throughout the whole process. I would like to thank the staff and Dr Singha for helping me by doing this procedure.""
