The best. Period. Look no further, just go. You can thank me later. ?? Both Dr G. & Dr. Pare are experts. The best part is that they are extremely kind and their bedside manner is simply amazing. In for a checkup? You're not farmed out to an assistant or an NP, you're seeing THEM. No one does this. This is from a patient whom has been in the OR 4x with them and counting...I know what I am talking about! Feel free to email me at ssj29 "at" Comcast . Net

I had suffered from aches and pains in my leg because of varicose veins.My primary Dr never advised me to see a Vascular specialist.I took it upon myself to search I found Dr Gonsalves who explained my condition and advised me to have surgery to fix the varicose vein . I am so satisfied with the results .No more aches and pains and no big veins to look at. I would recommend anyone with this condition to make an appointment with Dr Gonsalves . He is a great Dr and knows what he's doing

I highly recommend Dr. Gonsalves. I had been living with pain from varicose veins for over 20 years and finally decided to have them removed after years of chronic pain. I was very nervous, but Dr. Gonsalves demeanor and competence were very reassuring to me. I am convinced that Dr. Gonsalves is an expert in his field. After just 1-2 days, the chronic pain from the varicose veins in my leg was gone for good. Now, four weeks later and I have not had any pain from the varicose veins :-)
