The experience was professional care by all staff members at its best! They made you feel comfortable and there was no long wait times. Dr Fonger was very skilled and the procedures were totally painless. All my expectations were met. My symptoms of leg cramps swelling and pain are gone. The bulging and spider veins are gone also. I am glad that i didn't keep putting it off and got something done about it. I highly recommend Dr, Fonger And Vein Atlanta.

Vein Atlanta and Dr. Fonger are an absolute must if you have any vein issues. If you have Varicose or spider veins, or issues you’re not sure about. Just give them a call and schedule a Consultation. Dr. Fonger has a great bedside manner, answers all your questions and doesn’t suggest anything that is not needed. I recommend Vein Atlanta highly.

Interestingly enough I was having issues with my left calf swelling and was diagnosed with a DVT in that leg. I made an appointment with Dr Fonger for further treatment. What a great decision. After having a scan and verification of the diagnosis, we agreed on a conservative treatment plan. Today I had follow up scan with perfect results. Everyone at this location is super friendly, very professional and without a doubt the most thorough team I've been involved with. I will always recommend this team.

I was very nervous about coming to Vein Atlanta after my family practice doctor thought I needed to go. I had not paid particular attention to the heaviness in my legs I just chalked it up to being older and tired. After finding out that I indeed had venous insufficiency I scheduled my appointments to have vein ablation. Because I was so nervous about the procedures, I chose to do them with nitrous oxide. Six weeks later the heaviness in my legs is gone and I’m fine! Thank you Dr Fonger and your staff for taking such good care of me!

I have had issues with both my legs for years. After having my vein ablation, my legs feel brand new! Everyone at the office was so nice and comforting. I was scared about the procedure, but it really is very short and they offer gas to those who need it. Recovery was simple and short lived. I wish I had gotten this done long ago!

I finished my treatment schedule today. Great results from this clinic. My carrier is BCBC and the treatments were covered excluding co-pays. I am a 60 something male so looks we’re not as important as getting rid of the pain and cramps. Would recommend this treatment for anyone with bulging and painful leg veins.

My experience with Vein Atlanta was awesome. My primary concern before going in was insurance, but they made the process seamless (and it ended up being very affordable). Thanks Dr Fonger! I’ll be back to get those spider veins done in the future!

Dr. Fonger is multiskilled with a gracious demeanor. Years ago I declined RFA, as I felt like a cattle waiting to be slaughtered. My legs no longer feel numb nor am I awakened by cramps. Everyone provided excellent service.
