Dr. John Berry


Founder & Treating Physician

John Berry, MD, FACC, RPVI, DABVLM-Dr. Berry and his wife Trish have enjoyed living in the Tri-Cities for over 15 years.  During his career in cardiovascular medicine, he found a passion for venous medicine which was cultivated over many years of practice at the Johnson City Vein Care Center.  Prior to its closing, The Vein Care Center was the leading vein care practice in the Tri-Cities for over 8 years.  Dr. Berry noted the great relief his patients experienced when liberated from painful varicosities, venous ulcers, and the stigma of spider veins.  With a deep passion for his patients and a relentless pursuit of excellence, Dr. Berry ultimately made the treatment of vein disease a full-time career and began Living Water Vein Institute.  The name arose after a time of prayer with his wife asking the Lord for a name that would honor Him. 
The verse from John 7:38 was given to him:  He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.  Dr. Berry and Trish enjoy hiking, fishing, Biblical studies and traveling.

When you are considering your venous specialist, Dr. Berry is uniquely qualified, no other physician in the Tri-Cities holds all these qualifications being triple certified in cardiovascular medicine, diplomate of the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine, and a registered physician in vascular interpretation (RPVI).

  • As a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine (designated DABVLM) Dr. Berry has demonstrated a commitment to the highest quality standards in treating patients with venous disease. Diplomates are physicians who have passed the most comprehensive examination of knowledge in vein disease available today and met all other requirements of the board.  This designation requires a dedication to lifelong learning and assessments of knowledge for maintenance of this certification.  Not all physicians who treat vein disorders are Diplomates of the ABVLM.  Becoming a diplomate is voluntary. Only a minority of physicians treating vein disease strive to achieve this highest quality of care and level of knowledge for their patients.
