Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Aquino is very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The surgery I had was much less invasive than my friends that had a similar surgery with another doctor. The staff is professional, friendly and reliable. Thanks Dr. Aquino and all the staff for making my vericose vein surgery a breeze.
