      Dr. Golan and his associates were wonderful! The whole process was very good. From the initial visit where they told me what I needed to have done to the actual day of the procedure. I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs their varicose veins addressed. I even just went back to have my second procedure done. THANK YOU!

      I would highly recommend Dr. Golan and his staff. Dr. Golan explained what my procedure entailed, what to expect afterwards, and offered contact information if any questions arose. He and his staff were friendly, courteous, and informative, and they lessened any anxiety one might have.

      Dr. Golan is very responsive, a good listener and very kind. I called out of town and the office got back to me immediately. Dr. Golan was able to squeeze me in as soon as I got in town to look at my painful legs. His staff are all very kind, considerate and friendly especially his medical assistant Gina and his PA. I would highly recommend him to anyone. I had ablation of my veins a few years ago and I was very satisfied with the procedure as well as the follow-up.

      I travelled all the way from Denver to see Dr. Golan for a bypass on my left leg last August. From the initial consultation to my recovery, Dr. Golan and his staff were especially attentive and caring. Now several months later, you can barely see the incisions! And I'm able to walk as far and as long as I want. Best decision I ever made was to take advantage of his many years of skillful work and experience

      Outstanding vascular surgeon! Dr. Golan recently did a femoral popliteal bypass on my right leg. No complications whatsoever. I went from walking less that 200 feet to more than 4 miles in the week after surgery. Staff was extremely helpful and responsive.

      I would never recommend this doctor. First experience was many years ago and waited almost 3 hours to then find out he wasn't even in the building. Decided to try again and did have minor in office surgery on both my legs. Went for an appointment today with him, and he wasn't even there again. They didn't contact me to let me know, but tried to have me see his assistant who isn't an MD instead. I think it was their plan all along. Don't waste your time-go see a real doctor.
