About Our Providers
Peter Hahn, MD
Dr. Peter Hahn brings a unique background to the treatment of varicose vein disease, a field known as phlebology. After graduating from Harvard University and Cornell University Medical School, he completed his internship, residency, and two additional fellowships with board certifications in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, and clinical cardiac electrophysiology (EP). After working in Boston, Dr. Hahn started the first cardiac EP program in western Massachusetts, where he practiced for almost a decade before returning to Connecticut to be closer to his family. Dr. Hahn then completed additional training under leaders in the field of Phlebology to smoothly translate his experience performing complex procedures inside the heart (by accessing peripheral and central veins more 10,000 times over the course of his career) into the treatment of patients with varicose vein disease.
Dr. Hahn’s training and experience as an internist allow him to form empathetic, lasting relationships with his patients and referring physicians, an increasingly rare aspect of medicine which he still values. In addition, he takes pride in helping patients feel better by performing minimally-invasive, office-based procedures at the highest ethical and clinical standards of care.
I enjoy taking the time to listen to my patients, educating them about their disease, and thoroughly explaining what my staff and I can do to help them feel better.
To be able to achieve that with my own hands is why I love this field.

Kendra Allen, BSN, RN
Kendra has over 20 years of nursing experience including cardiothoracic critical care, ambulatory surgery, and outpatient primary care, in addition to years of injection experience. She assists Dr. Hahn in office-based ablation procedures and performs sclerotherapy, injection treatments that eliminate painful varicose and unsightly spider veins. For Kendra, the most rewarding part of her job is seeing patients feel better and regain their self-confidence as they complete their treatments and their unwanted veins disappear. Her pleasant, patient-centered approach and injection skill have earned the loyalty of her patients, who often refer their own family members and friends.
