Dr. Vasquez really took care of me and my legs. The staff was personable, competent, and actually had a sense of humor, something not found often in offices. I had my left leg treated for venous insufficiency by a different doctor. He said my right leg would be too tough and recommended Dr. Vasquez. Doctor V took care of my leg and the relief came quickly. Much less pain and quicker recovery. I was able to show people the drastic difference between both legs. At my one month checkup, my right leg was healing fantastically, but my left was severely swollen and painful and had a huge ulceration on it. Dr. Vasquez did a doppler on both legs and found several veins that were missed by the first Dr. I agreed to have Dr. V fix my left leg and am happy to report that both legs are now not swollen,not discolored and are pain free .Thank you Dr. V. and staff. Highly recommended by me. C.O.

I would not recommend this office or doctor, after treatment my main reason to why I came in was not resolved. Also, front desk staff are very unfriendly.

My experience has been excellent from beginning to follow up! The relief of pain I have experienced from this procedure is a miracle for me. I slogged through for so long with tiredness and pain that I had no idea what I was enduring until I had Dr Vasquez help me. The office staff is easy to reach and the patient portal is an effective tool to reach out if needs be. Really can't say enough about how life changing this is.

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.

I had no idea how much pain my veins were causing me until I spoken to a friend about my leg pain. She suggested I get a consultation at the Venous Institute. The entire process was so easy and very comfortable! Within a few short months my legs feel amazing! The entire staff was friendly and educated on the process. All very willing to answer any questions I had along the way. Dr. Vasquez has an incredible demeanor and took any fear away. They actually care about the patient!

Dr. Vasquez and his team are miracle workers! When I entered his office in November of 2017 I had legs that looked like snakes and worms had made their homes in the calves, thighs and ankles. My legs looked like I was the world's oldest woman. Today, 4 months later, after only one treatment per leg, I have snake free legs that feel fantastic. Everyone from the front desk receptionists, tech staff and Dr. at the Venous Institute of Buffalo make you feel comfortable. THANK YOU!

I was a little apprehensive about having vein treatment, but everyone in this office was wonderful from the first visit, taking the time to explain all options. Dr. Vasquez explained everything he was doing during the procedures and took the time to answer any questions and make sure I was comfortable throughout.
