— Forget making house calls, the doctors of Physician’s Regional Healthcare System are making bank calls. And just because your meeting your doctor at the bank, doesn’t mean you’ll need to take out a loan while you’re there. In fact, unlike a house call, these bank calls won’t cost you a dime.

It’s all part of Iberia Bank’s new Health “PLUS” lecture series, which kicks-off Tuesday evening at the bank’s Marco Island location. An offshoot of the financial institution’s popular In the Round community forums, Tuesday’s seminar, featuring vein specialist Julian J. Javier, is, well, in the same vein as its counterpart – but with a slightly different focus.

“This is a partnership with Physician’s Regional. I know they do a lot of presentations up at their facility, but I wanted to bring the info here to Marco Island,” says Keith Dameron, the VP-manager of the Marco Island Iberia Bank. “I know the people on Marco Island are so supportive of events here, I just wanted to make this important medical information available to as many people as possible.”

Over the years, the In the Round forums have proven to be very popular, with crowds of 75 or more often filling the bank’s lobby. And though Dameron theorizes that the health lecture series will probably draw a smaller crowd, that’s okay with him.

“I think we’ll have between 25 and 30 people, so it will be a smaller group, but it’s a group that’s interested in the particular topic,” he says, adding, “Since it’s a specific topic, it will be a pretty well defined audience. The people that come will have a specific interest in hearing about the topic being discussed.”

On Tuesday that topic will be new treatment options and procedures for dealing with vein diseases like varicose and spider veins.

And if anyone is qualified to talk on such a topic it’s surely Dr. Julian J. Javier. Javier has worked with, and been board certified to treat cardiovascular diseases since 1999 and has been board certified in interventional cardiology since 2001. And not only has Javier been named a fellow of the American College of Cardiology but he’s also been named a fellow at the America College of Chest Physicians and the Society of Cardiac Angiography and Interventions.

Plus, Javier regularly performs state-of-the-art treatments like Endovenous Laser Ablation, Ambulatory Phlebectomy and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, all of which he’ll address during his lecture.

But beyond being respected in his field and adept at utilizing new technology for optimal results, Javier was an obvious choice to kick-off this new series because he’s also an excellent orator.

“Not all professional people who really know their trade or business are also good public speakers, but I’ve heard Dr. Javier speak before and he’s a very good speaker,” insists Dameron.

And the format of the event will surely allow Javier to showcase his speaking prowess, with 45 minutes of lecture time allotted at the beginning of the event. But Dameron insists that there will also be plenty of time for speaking with Javier one-on-one.

“Because often medical issues are very personal, he’ll hang around afterwards to talk one-on-one with people. In general, I’ve found medical professionals to be incredibly giving with their time and knowledge, but sometimes in an office setting that’s just not possible. An opportunity like this, for people to have personal exposure to a medical professional, I view it as a very good thing for the community.”

And if vein issues and treatments aren’t your concern, don’t worry. Upcoming Health “PLUS” topics include MAKOplasty for knee and hip replacement surgery; ear, nose and throat issues addressed; and incision-less surgery for severe heartburn.

Which means that thanks to Iberia Bank’s new Health “PLUS” forums, you can finally get the health info you need just by visiting the bank, and without having to actually break it.
