Dr. wanted to do invasive procedure requiring general anesthetic in his office that was not needed- as agreed by two subsequent physicians. And the issue has disappeared.

Dr. Nero explained everything to me in understandable terms and performed the endovenous ablation procedure almost painlessly and he kept me comfortable and distracted during the 20-30 min procedure.
