Dr. Anton treated me for severe pain and other symptoms due to my varicose veins. Headvised and performed a “great saphenous veins ablation” surgery on both legs. As a result I’ve experienced almost miraculous change: from being nearly disabled by constant pain in my veins I have been restored back to healthy and productive person. I feel extremely lucky that Dr. Anton did my surgeries. I’ve selected him based on recommendations from my friends and research of his background and ratings.
