Dr. Kowalski treated my varicose veins using thermal ablation. The procedure was done in his office under local anesthesia. It wasn't painful, and Dr. Kowalski made sure that I was comfortable during the procedure. The results of the procedure exceeded my expectations. I can recommend Dr. Kowalski to anybody with varicose veins problems.

The most caring, professional, competent and skilled Physician I have ever worked with or had as a personal Doctor. He truly listened and took the time to explain everything to me. And when no one else could or wanted to take the time to help me, he did. And on top of it all, after 10 years, I am finally normal and out of pain. A truly talented, no, gifted surgeon!

His staff (Jessica) was rude on the phone. Day before surgery and she was rushing me off the phone and sounded annoyed by my questions. She hung up before i had the chance to say goodbye. I almost canceled my surgery as a result of this interaction.
