An experienced cardiothoracic surgeon and long-time Gulf Coast resident, Dr. Lonquist has specialized interest and skill involving the circulatory system and treatment of venous disorders.

“As a surgeon, I know the importance of healthy veins and how they can be life-saving for those suffering with heart disease. Now, as I open this vein center with Baptist, I am proud to offer medical and cosmetic vein procedures that will help ensure healthier veins and healthier lives for my patients,” says Dr. Lonquist.  

At the Baptist Vein Center in Gulf Breeze, Fla., Dr. Lonquist offers a range of cosmetic and medical treatments to treat vein disease, including surgical and non-surgical options. Services include:
