Patient Comments (1)

Every encounter we have had with this office has been awful. The doctor seems arrogant and treats you like you are stupid. He didn't give compression stockings to us and didn't prescribe proper treatment so therefore the insurance denied prior authorization for procedure. His staff is short, rude...more

I don't believe this patient review is for the correct physician. My office hasn't done vein treatment for several years.
