Dr. Kristina Sanchez performed radiofrequency ablation on my legs. This helped me feel years younger when walking and standing for long periods. What I attributed to aging was actually venous reflux. Great doctor and staff.

I was referred to Dr. Sanchez after I developed blood clots from achilles tendon surgery. She put me on Xeralto. For whatever reason, I had an episode of internal bleeding on Friday night. I called her office, & she returned my call within minutes via her personal cell. She stayed with me the whole weekend via phone/text. She also arranged for further checks (which were negative). She was there for me throughout everything. I cannot say enough for her personal care. Thank you!

I was very hesitant to have any procedures done on my legs. I was both a little afraid of how the procedure might affect me in terms of recovery and also any possible pain. The entire process has been exceptionally good. The staff is wonderful and Dr. Sanchez is so easy to talk to. She explains what to expect, and then goes on to explain what is going on during the procedure. I felt no pain, just a bit of general achiness in my leg which was brief. It was much better than I imagined.

My experience with Dr. Sanchez and the entire team at Innova Vein and Vascular was noteworthy. Every individual that I had contact with was both professional and compassionate. The office is extremely clean and clearly designed as a place of healing. I am most grateful that during each of my procedures, that absolute precision was a priority and that the time needed was made to ensure this happened in addition to making it as comfortable as possible for me. I highly recommend it.

My story is that for many years I've had painful legs. In the 1970s I had to have vein stripping to relieve the pain.The recovery took several weeks. But my legs have been a constant source of pain. Recently I decided I needed to see a podiatrist(DR Sotello)who after examining me referred me to DR Kristina Sanchez. DR Sanchez is outstanding; she explains everything and is so very gentle. She treated both legs and I am feeling so much better for the first time in my life. I am so thankful .

I had cellulitis real bad for the past seven years. Two or three times a year, hospitalised for two too three days, antibiotics pumped I me, extremely high fever. And now one and half year later got my color back in my legs, no more hospital. I am so grateful for the staff at Inova Vein and Vascular, not only did they heal me they also treated me like family. #onehappycostumer.??

Dr. Sanchez is a very caring doctor. I did not feel like my visit was rushed, she sat and listened to my concerns and offered suggested solutions. Her office and staff is inviting, makes you feel at ease from the moment you open the door. I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for venous and lymphatic care.

For many years I had severe leg cramps, waking me 6 to 12 times nightly. OTC medications had limited effect. My podiatrist recommended I see Dr. Sanchez. I was able to get a next day appointment, and was scheduled for the vein procedures within a week. These were handled in-office. Follow-up appointments were easily scheduled I just had my 1-year follow-up, and have not had leg cramps since the vein procedures were done. Kind, caring, compassionate, knowledgeable--thank you Dr. Sanchez!

Dr. Sanchez is a remarkable physician. She has the technical expertise that you'd expect but her interpersonal skills and down-to-earth manner are unique in the medical profession. Her reassuring manner helps reduce anxiety. She takes time to listen and thoroughly explains diagnoses and procedures. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Sanchez for your vein and vascular needs. She will do a great job for you.

Dr. Sanchez listens to everything first, then forms her opinion and shares it with you. Takes time to explain everything to you. Is kind and non-judgmental. Recommend her very, very highly.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sanchez to my friends and family. She explains the procedure being done in a professional and detailed manner so you can understand. She and her staff treat you like you are a part of their family. The work she did on both legs was done with little or no pain.

Dr Sanchez is an excellent, knowledgeable physician and happens to be the only one in the state that offers lymphedema care as well as vein and vascular care. Dr Sanchez listens and cares about her patients; something rare to see these days. My mother had two vein ablation procedures done in office without any complications and was fully notified beforehand of all the potential side effects and/ or problems in a caring and understanding manner. Great Dr and superb office staff and a coffee bar!
