I've had procedures done by both Dr. Malone himself and by Kelly (NP) and have had very good experiences each time. I trust this doctor and his staff to accurately diagnose and treat me.

I had an initial visit today and ended up scheduling surgery for my vericose veins. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly and helpful. I feel well informed and I know that any concerns will be properly addressed. I am looking forward to have "smooth" legs again!

After receiving treatment from Dr. Malone, the pain and physical appearance due to vein disease in my legs improved significantly. I was kept informed throughout the entire process and could not be happier with the end results!

I can't say enough good things about things about this practice. Everyone in the office is friendly and professional. I experienced great care here, and if I ever had any questions, they made sure they were answered. If you are looking for someone to treat your veins, please check out this practice rather than going to one of the Vein Clinics in Atlanta. This is the real deal. You will not be disappointed.

My leg pain worsened over the last couple of years and my ankles were dark and looked bruised from poor circulation. The ClariVein procedure relieved my pain even before the procedure was completed. My legs are steadily improving as I'm 2 weeks out on my right leg and one week on my left. The procedure was not painful and I have experienced only minor bruising. The staff is friendly and extremely knowledgeable and have been a pleasure to work with.

Dr. Malone was tentative and extremely competent. I would recommend him to anyone who is tired of coping with swollen, aching legs and feet. The treatments have made a vast improvement in my quality of life and I am extremely pleased with the results.

I had truly expected to have pain for the surgery lots of swelling and discomfort. I was totally wrong. The day of the surgery came and when I receive the injections for numbing I honestly can say I felt nothing as well as the procedure to remove the vein. When it was over and the were removing the wrap used to cover my body for the procedure I asked, When is the Dr going to remove the vein? The nurse said IT IS OVER. NO PAIN. The second leg went the same. The entire office staff is great.
