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!
