Had Venaseal done on one leg and was so pleased with the results and procedure. Had the second leg done two weeks later. Clean offices, friendly professional staff, and excellent patient care by the doctor. Have already recommended Neosculpt to my cardiologist and primary care doctor. Excellent facility.

He is one of the nicest doctors in Abilene, he has been keeping my husband's health in top shape. He makes you feel he is concern. Friendly, sense of humor. I have used him also, and I am comfortable with him. Some doctors acts like an old prude, but not Nik Patel!
