Hi everyone, my husband Norman and I spent 4 days in El Centri, California vifiting Dr Athar Ansari. He treated both my legs Monday and Wednesday. I had 6 previous angioplasty/atherectomies Thst never accomplished any success. Dr Athar offers more experience. I’ve been able to walk right off without pain. Dr Ansari is not afraid of the Dabra Laser. He will use whatever is best for you. YOU are most important! He has a lot of tools in his toolbox. The Dabra Laser is the most powerful tool. I was blessed to receive treatment with the Dabra Laser. Dr Ansari recommend a healthy diet, exercise and medication. Any questions? He will answer quickly! He’s very nice and pleasant and he has a great team! He takes care of the heart too. Next month my husband and I are going there to get a heart checkup and ultrasound. Dr Ansari has studied medical training all over the world. He knows every tool that exists. Most Dr’s use the same tools and won’t change even after 6 failures!

The day I went to his office he was 2 hours behind, so I had to reschedule. The next time I went it took 4 hours. I was in & out of the back rooms. This was a new patient appointment. I did not want to be there for that long. My appointment was at 8 a.m. I didn't get to see the doctor until around 10:30. He's a good doctor just too busy for the patients they schedule him for.
