Dr Piano was extraordinarily unprofessional during my ambulatory phlebectomy. Despite 4 appointments before the procedure (one of which was just to show me a YouTube video, but still cost $300 each), I felt completely unprepared for this procedure, the recovery process, and the pain. Along with his team, Dr Piano couldn't seem to make up his mind about the severity of this procedure. The entire process was awful, including him getting into an argument immediately before surgery. AVOID!
