I had several procedures done by Dr. Compton for varicose veins. With each surgery he explained the procedure, asked me if I had any questions and answered them, and continually asked me how I was doing during the procedure. His bedside manner is one of the best of any physician I've encountered. The staff were very friendly, and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Compton and his team at Arizona Endovascular.

Had spider veins removed, it was finished before I knew it. No pain at all. Recovery was great. Has a excellent bedside manner. His staff explain what they are doing as well what would happen. When Dr Comptom started he explained what was going to happen also. Really put me at ease. The whole office is exceptionally clean, for those who worry about everything. The staff also very helpful. You’re not treated like a number, but as a person. I would highly recommend Dr Chris Compton as your endovascular doctor.

I would stay away from this doctor because his billing department is a nightmare. Rude, unresponsive, and lacking in overall knowledge. I can't even get them to take the money I owe them!
