First visit and I was very impressed. There may be hope for my wound. Thanks for getting me to see wound care clinic. Further vein treatments are being evaluated.

Dr. Isobe is very nice and so is his staff. He shows me the ultrasound and explains to me what we are seeing on the screen. I have trusted him and his staff with three operations on my legs. Just a pleasant experience everytime I go.

Great info on chronic venous insufficiency at the vein screening I did. Showed PPT presentation to group while we waited. Fast service and great staff. Glad I went. I have CVI and will be doing RF ablation.
