Great physician! I have had two procedures by him in the last 5 years and had awesome results! Prior to procedures I wanted to cry my legs hurt so bad by the end of my long work day. After the procedures I was amazed at how immediate my results were. Regarding Mary in Chicago post... Mary he hasn't practiced in Chicago!

My mother was referred to Dr. Nellestein for her varicose veins. She had two surgeries with him but her legs kept getting worse. She saw another doctor in Chicago and found out that his treatments had not worked. They told us that all her veins were still there and some!. How is this possible? My mother contacted the local hospital but was told that he had moved. We were never told that he was moving. I wish she had gone to someone who uses the latest techniques and knows what he is doing.
