Great staff and an amazing doctor. I had two procedures and couldn't ask for better results. I just wish I did this way earlier because I've had problems with my veins since I was 23. I feel amazing now!
in Jersey City, NJ |
I went to do my leg veins , he told me it's a ONE TIME procedure after we get my insurance approval we had the date set I went and found his assistant telling me that we have to do the procedure in 4 times !! 2 times for the two legs front and 2 times for the legs back I was never told this info before so I refused to move forward They are not honest or transparent , they just need you in office as much as they can Watch out , the bills they add extra items it happened more than one time!!
