As a board certified, fellowship trained vascular surgeon who was trained at the Mayo Clinic, I specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of varicose and venous disease.

Dr. John L. Happel Jr., MD says
I appreciate the positive comments and feedback from those patients who have taken the time to spread the word. Some comments and ratings are from patients who who have come to me for a second opinion. Some of them have been advised elsewhere to either have procedures or testing that they feel are not indicated. This is a growing concern both locally and nationally. I value the trust that my patients and the many referring doctors in my community have in my abilities, ethical behavior, training and experience.
