My legs were keeping me from being able to live a full active life. Once Dr, Vasquez fixed my veins it changed my life. Im back to the gym and doing tons of activities with my son. This was the best thing I could have done for MYSELF. Thank you to Dr. Vasquez and his team for everything.

After 44 years of working as an RN, my varicose veins were a major problem. I found Dr. Vasquez and his staff to be professional, skillful, and very informative. The outcome of my procedures was very favorable. I highly recommend this team for vascular needs.
