I have been going to Dr. Pliagas for over 10 years with circulation problems in both my legs. Over the years he has helped me a great deal. Three years ago I had to have lazer surgery on several varicose veins in both legs. He was very through in explain what to expect, and after wards he personally called me to check up on me. Given that I am only allowed a short amount of space here, I can not explain how great of a doctor he is. I very highly recommend him for any vascular problems.

I just don't like him! He always seems like he's running a race and I feel like I'm on an assembly line! He needs to lay off the caffeine!
