I felt confident after my initial consult, that Dr. Gilster’s recommendation was the procedure that would improve my condition. At the consult, all questions were answered that put me at ease about timeline and procedures. Helpful packet of information to take home in addition to the excellent job the staff did explaining after care. Wonderful staff, from front desk, ultra sound tech (Mariah) intake (Emily). PA Liz was great with follow up. Appointments are scheduled so ultra sound was done then Dr. Gilster reviewed information with me the same day. Appreciate the efficiency of scheduling.

Coming from someone who hasn't had many medical procedures, I was naturally a little nervous about having my varicose vein treated. I am happy to report that my procedure went very well. I received clear information regarding the procedure process. The whole staff at Inovia Bridgeport was very helpful. If I ever have any additional vein issues come up in the future, I would absolutely come back to see Dr. Gilster.
