He was very thorough in his explanations and took his time at all the appointments. I never felt rushed, which is unusual at doctor's offices nowadays. Will go back if I have further circulation issues in the future

I came in 2 years ago for spider veins and he did a great job! I came back for a 2nd visit to catch a few more spider veins. I recommend this to anyone who is self conscious of their leg veins.

I came to Dr. Gotvald to have him help me with my spider vein problem. He not only examined me, but also pointed out some other things that I did not know about. He told me everything that he thought was best for my treatment and what I did not need so I was not wasting money. Now after my treatments, for the first time I cannot wait for summer and able to weir shorts without embarrassment. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Gotvald if you would like to be rid of your unsightly spider veins.

I am a physician who found myself in need of the services of a vascular specialist. I chose Dr. Gotvald because of his excellent credentials. As his patient, I am grateful for his thorough explanation and patience in answering all of my questions. I underwent a relatively minor procedure with a very successful outcome. If I need further more invasive treatment of my veins, I will return to Dr. Gotvald.
