The American Health Council recognizes Dr. Julien for his innovative approach to patient care and laudable contributions to the interventional radiology field.
When he was young, Dr. Julien was influenced by his best friend’s father, who held a rewarding and selfless professional career as a family practitioner. Supplemented by his strong intellect and talent for the biomedical sciences, Dr. Julien used that inspiration to enroll at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., and earned a medical degree in 1986. He then completed fellowships where he gained specific training and board certification in interventional radiology from the Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute.
In pursuit of a rewarding clinical career where he could utilize his specialized skills, Dr. Julien founded South Florida Vascular Associates in 2001. The office is a comprehensive medical practice specializing in minimally invasive endovascular procedures, which are effective for treating a wide range of vascular conditions.

The American Health Council applauds South Florida Vascular Associates’ innovative approach to Endovascular Therapy, Interventional Radiology, cancer care, and vascular conditions and commitment to healthcare and medicine.
Dr. Julien attributes his professional success to his hard work and dedication. He was one of the first physicians in the United States to open an Office Interventional Suite, providing patients with easy access to highly specialized medical care. A testament to his leadership at the forefront of medical advancement, Dr. Julien is also known as one of the first Interventional Radiologists to have an office-based, clinical practice in the United States. He aspires to promote exceptional patient care and continued advancement in his field in his work. Towards this end, he founded the Outpatient Endovascular and Interventional Society (OEIS), of which he served as Immediate Past President from 2015 to 2017.
In recognition of his professional excellence throughout his career, Dr. Julien received the Top Doctors Award and serves as a member of the Council on Cardiovascular Radiology for the American Heart Association and a member of the Practice Affairs Committee and the Society of Interventional Radiology.

He hopes to continue sharing his medical knowledge as a mentor to new doctors in the future. True to Dr. Julien’s humanitarian character, he also hopes to open addition Office Endovascular Suites in underserved areas to help patients within the next few years.
