Dr Prevosti is an excellent surgeon! His entire staff is very professional and warm. He is very detail oriented and explains his procedures very well. I stand on my feet 8- 12 hours a day and now my legs feel great. If a procedure is need for my other leg in the future, I would 100% return to the great care of Dr Louis Prevosti! Sincerely, James

My experience with the staff and Dr. Prevosti were wonderful. From the initial visit, the insurance certification process, and the procedure itself I was treated very well. The vein procedure was a life changing event for me. I am no longer taking ibuprofen for the leg pain and my feet do not cramp. I did not realize how bad my legs were until they no longer hurt. Thank you.

Dr Prevosti’s team was great from initial visit through follow up appointment. Staff was very friendly and helpful with questions. The graduation gift was also a nice touch. Dr. Prevosti explained my procedure and what was happening at each phase. He is a true professional in his field. I am very pleased with the results of my procedure. I am amazed at how much better I feel physically. I wish I had the procedure years ago.

I went to Dr. Prevosti to have varicose veins taken care of. The VeinAtlanta office staff is very friendly and efficient. They performed a thorough examination including an ultrasound. They went over the results and I opted to have a Radio Frequency (RF) Ablation. Dr. Prevosti as well as his PA, Allen Morgan, gave thorough explanations and instructions for pre and post procedure. The procedure was performed under local anesthesia and was almost painless. I have healed very well and am very happy

I have been very pleased with Dr. Prevosti and his entire office staff at Vein Atlanta. Bottom line, Dr. Prevosti solved my vein issues, including not only deep vein problems, but also relatively minor cosmetic problems. When beginning treatment, a patient is assigned an advocate to help with insurance coverages along with scheduling and anything else. I was also given a file containing specific instructions for treatment. The office can provide special support hose on site, if needed.

The whole team @ VEINAtlanta are the best as I went through my procedures. Dr.Prevosti .did a fantastic job with the help of great assistants. I hedged on my decision in having the vein procedures done, but I am so glad I came back to see Dr. Prevosti. He and the staff calmed my nerves as to how the vascular surgery would be done and the relief I have had since then was time well spent. So if you are "dragging your legs" in making a decision to have VeinAtlanta work with you -- do it!

My results? legs are no longer swollen, they don’t ache, and the restless leg syndrome is almost completely gone. In fact, I feel more energy in general; I’m sure the bad circulation and lymphedema were taking a toll on my body that I wasn’t aware of. I am so grateful for the relief I’ve experienced as a result of my Vein Atlanta procedures, and I can’t say enough good things about the warm, supportive atmosphere I encountered there.
