Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Richard "Advanced Vein and Vascular is focused on providing you with the most innovative cutting edge vein procedures and cosmetic techniques. Rather than just treating varicose and spider veins without addressing the underlying cause, Dr. Richard utilizes diagnostic ultrasound to accurately determine the source of the problem veins. This allows us to customize treatments to eliminate unwanted veins and to minimize any recurrence."

What an absolute crook! I had my varicose veins done with him and after he did my procedure he walked right out of the room, without asking me if i was okay. All I could see in his eyes was $$ signs. I am a cash patient and was left to bleed there while he had his ill trained staff put pressure to "stop the bleeding" i will NEVER recommend him to anyone. Jersey city is made out of money hungry crooks and he's #1. If i could, I wouldn't give him any stars! disgusted!

I had a first time appointment on 06/18/16. The staff were very unprofessional first speaking to me in Spanish when I am African American. I payed my copay prior to seeing the Dr. $40.00 They reminded me when i called to make the appointment $40.00 copay.Soon as i got there.$40 copay and 1month and a half later they send a bill for copay payment...My fault i lost receipt.Valuable lesson learned pay with check or debit.I will pay again but beware hold receipt and pay with card or check!
