Through my decades of experience treating veins, my goal is to provide a long lasting and trusting relationship through mutual cooperation. My decision making process is based on evidence-based medicine tempered with over 30 years of experience and wisdom treating varicose veins. That results in a unique medical experience that was enjoyed in years past. I will provide more quality time as a caring physician who will respectfully and attentively listen and act according to your goals. I alone will be in charge of your care from the beginning to the end. That differentiates my practice from others. There will not be a different doctor trying to catch up with your treatment plan each time you come to the office. My goal is to respond in a kindly fashion with a warm bedside manner. I emphasize effective communication with experienced based insight and compassion. You will feel as if someone knows you personally and has your best interests in mind at all times.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Happel Jr "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. My vein center is IAC certified unlike other vein centers in Pittsburgh. Research your options carefully before you choose a vein doctor. No other vein doctor in Pittsburgh has comparable qualifications, experience or training. My office is not a chain or franchise so I will personally design a one on one treatment plan."

Dr. Happel Jr 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.
