Fairbanks, AK |
I was very happy with the results of my leg vein work with Dr. Ives a few years ago. Trying to now come back for the other leg! The visible difference between the two is remarkable.
in Saved my life |
During moose hunting in Alaska years before ever meeting Dr. Ives I had herniated a disc in my back. At the time I was advised to exercise and live through the problem as surgical options did not always provide the best outcome. A decade later after considerable pain and agony I made the decision to seek surgery to do anything to improve my condition. The surgeon from out of Fairbanks sent me a 14 page medical history in which I indicated (alert to healthgrades not enough space for story) why?
Dr Ives is so knowledgeable and experienced, yet caring and compassionate. I have had such a great experience here and a great outcome while treating my veins. I did not have this experience other places in town. His staff is awesome! Thank you!!
