I am an RN who is on her feet for long hours at a time. I've had problems with edema, aching and fatigue from varicose veins in my lower extremities for years, making long work days feel a lot longer. The staff at Vascular Solutions were very professional and pleasant. There was excellent communication regarding the process of the initial visit and treatment. The office and exam rooms were extraordinarily clean and uncluttered. They were well equipped with the latest diagnostic and monitoring equipment. Patient safety and comfort were clearly of prime importance. Most compelling were the qualifications of Dr. Ford. Who better to do this type of work than a well trained vascular surgeon?! I felt very fortunate to have found such a skilled physician. Dr. Ford is a quiet intellectual who has the ability to explain procedures and options in a layperson's terms, making good use of digital illustrations and diagrams. Not all physicians have this skill set.

Dr. Ford's miraculous work and leadership saved the life of my mother! There isn't enough money in the world that my family could repay Dr. Ford for his wonderful expertise and strong skill set in the vascular medical profession. He will forever be special to us because he is a true American hero!

I went to see Dr. Ford for the first time today June 16, 2019. He is awesome!!! When I left his office I didn’t have to do any further research or study about my condition. He was totally thorough and very specific about my condition, cause, treatments, etc. I highly recommend Dr. Ford to anyone that needs vascular diagnosis and treatments. Thank you so much Dr. Ford I truly appreciate your courtesy, and your great bedside manners.

Dr. Ford and staff are awesome. I had issue with my legs for 10 plus years, and was refer to them by my primary care Doctor. I started going to Vascular Solution, close to one year later, I am able to wear shorts again. Dr. Ford, PA Hartman, Nurse Riley, Nurse Cuy, and the entire Medical staff are amazing and make you feel comfortable.

Dr. Ford is AWESOME! Veins/valves were causing my legs to feel tired, heavy and causing skin blotches. He and staff were greet! Explaining step by step, everything from office visit ultra sound right on thru the proceedure. It was painless and over before I knew it. When I got home and walked up my stairs, it felt like I had new legs! I wish I had known about Dr Ford years ago. I am female and 58 and I have my life back!

My legs were very itchy and heavy for a long time. After my evaluation, Dr. Ford explained that I had venous insufficiency. I underwent the VenaSeal procedure and immediately felt relief from my symptoms. It feels like I'm wearing a new pair of legs. The staff make you feel like family. I'm so glad I came here.

When I started this adventure with my legs, I was feeling really bad. My legs looked so bad and felt extremely heavy. I could not stand on my legs for any length of time, especially when shopping or at the grocery store. My family physician recommended Dr Ford to me. I started the procedures in October of 2016. I came in for radiofrequency surgery and phlebectomy to both legs. These procedures treated my insufficient veins, as well as removed the bulging varicose veins. In February of 201

Just wanted to take a minute to say how much I appreciated Dr. Ford’s experience and care that I received during my procedures. I had radio frequency ablation, small vein phlebectomy and sclerotherapy on both legs and felt very well taken care of by Dr. Ford and his friendly and knowledgeable staff. All my insurance issues where taken care of by his office staff and all my questions where answered about my procedures by the doctor. It’s nice to go to a physician who takes the time to listen!

After 6 months I have more pain and my legs look worse than before I spent thousands and went through 4 very painful venous ablations. I went in for light cosmetic spider vein treatment only and was told I needed 4 venous ablations. My insurance covered several spider vein treatments after the ablation surgeries-many more than I needed, but the doctor spread out the procedures treating imaginary spider veins and neglecting those that truly needed treatment. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR.

I went to Dr. Ford, after being evaluated by another cardiologist, and not having a good experience. To be truthful, it was horrible! From the beginning of my testing, to having my procedures for Venus Reflux Disease completed, I have been 100% confident with Dr. Ford and all the staff at Vascular Solutions. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ford.

It is ok to question Doctors, it lets them know you are engaged while providing needed info to make an informed consent. My biggest concern of having this procedure in the office instead of a hospital was, Would I be sacrificing quality for convenience and cost? I can tell you- I made no sacrifice!!! Dr. Ford is soft spoken not grumpy! He is focused, professional, skilled and has a great bedside manner. He educates and ensures understanding. His staff is wonderful and cares about you

I would highly recommend Dr. Peter Ford not only for his knowledge and expertise but for his professionalism. After our visit and all my questions were answered he had my complete trust. I also want to thank his staff Mandy, Brian and Dan for their professionalism and kindness. They went out of their way to make sure I was well taken care of and comfortable. You couldn't ask for a finer staff to support a fine surgeon.
