I can't thank Dr. K enough for my new and improved legs. For many years, I suffered from painful, bulging veins. After seeing two other doctors that didn't help me, I didn't know what to do. Luckily, another patient of Dr. K referred me to him. Nine months later, I can't believe the difference of being pain free and having younger looking legs. The pain and scarring from the procedures were minimal. The office staff is very friendly & accommodating. Thank you Dr. Karamanoukian & Staff !!!

Dr Karamanoukian has performed varicose vein procedure on both my legs within the last year. Doctor Karamanoukian thoroughly explained all aspects of the procedures and took the time to listen to my concerns. In addition, the staff at the Vein Treatment Center were very professional, friendly and informative. By following Dr Karamanoukian post - op instructions, I had very little discomfort and infact i was able to run a race two days after a procedure with no pain or restrictions.

Dr. Karamanoukian and his staff were very friendly and professional. They did an excellent job with my laser vein treatment. I feel I made the right choice having Dr. Karamanoukian and his staff correct my vein issue. I would recommend Dr. Karamanoukian.

Honest, my legs feel 10 to 20 years younger! Didn't really know what sort of difference I would see prior to having Dr. Karamanouk work on the veins in my legs, but... Wow! I am a runner and a PE Teacher, so I am always on my feet and my legs felt instantly better! Unbelievable how quickly I noticed the difference too! On my second leg, procedure, Dr. Karamanouk convinced me to use a supplement to quicken my recovery process, and that worked too! I ran 7 miles two days after my procedure

Dr. K and his staff are the best!! I have gone several times to see Dr. K for vein issues. I made the biggest mistake going to Dr. Buscaglia for this! Had horrible and painful inflammation for 12 wks. from procedure! I have had EVLT's done and 100% successful with Dr. K! Walking 4-5 miles a day after procedure the very next day! I will refer family and friends to this wonderful doc. Run, don''t walk to Dr. Karamanoukian! Phenomenal doc with A+ results! I will never go anywhere else!

Dr. Karamanoukian has treated me like family since day one, the staff included! I am truly grateful to have met these people. I have been treated at this practice many times over the past couple years. My work schedule is a bit different from others, I travel constantly back and forth from Buffalo to Albany and I am very "high maintenance" when it comes to my availability. Somehow, someway the staff always manages to accomodate me. It's very much appreciated! You ALL are AMAZING!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Dr. Karamanoukan and his entire staff! Everyone from the minute you walk in to the time you leave is so friendly, helpful and always smiling!! In the past 6 months that I have been a patient, I have never had a wait longer than 5 minutes! Dr. K is absolutely amazing! He honestly listens and cares for his patients and NEVER rushes you if you have questions. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. K to anyone who needs his services! You won't be disappointed!!!

I was referred to Dr Karamanoukian by my primary Dr and also by a friend who highly recommended him. I've had several surgeries thus far and look forward to continuous results once all treatments are complete. Dr K and his staff really make you feel comfortable as they are all very personable and truly care about their patients. If you're having issues with painful varicose veins, don't put it off like I did. Let Dr K take care of you, you won't regret it!

My genetic pool is full of varicose veins, leg swelling and pain. I understand the importance of finding a qualified doc. I have been cross training for 20 yrs (running, cycling, boxing, martial arts, weight lifting, Pilates)Down time is a critical issue as well as proper healing. I was given instructions as to treatment and restrictions - more than once and by 2-3 staff members to be sure I understood and didn't over do. My legs feel and look wonderful. Love that they make me feel at ease too!

Dr Karamanoukian is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. His office, and staff are very professional. They are always very welcoming. The procedures that I have had done on my veins worked and I was in and out in under 1/2 hour each time. I will recommend them to family and friends. I am so glad that I went. My legs do not hurt anymore and I have the energy to exercise again. Thank you!

Dr K and staff are very welcoming. Made to feel at ease before procedures. Because of the seriousness of my chronic vein issues, having trust and faith in Dr K and is team is vital. I Would recommend them to anybody who has the same issues.
