To the unhappy review calling Dr. Carabasi "unethical", as his business partner 10+ years, unethical is NOT a description for Dr. Carabasi. He is beyond honest, and his ethics will stand up to the utmost scrutiny. Her claims that it was not explained she might need a second procedure are unlikely. As in our paperwork treatments usually occur in stages, first the "feeder vein", THEN later remove bulging veins IF NEEDED. People sign off on what they are told because many don't hear everything.

I saw Dr. Carabasi to discuss my leg symptoms. He explained I had a vascular condition that required a two part procedure. He and his technician were very thorough in explaining each procedure and I was given two papers with clear and easy directions. Dr. Carabasi and his staff were pleasant and professional. He was kind and caring during the procedures. My experience and outcome were very positive. I highly recommend Dr. Carabasi to anyone needing treatment for their vascular conditions.
Dr. Carabasi is an unethical physician. At initial appt.,he did not inform me that 2 procedures were necessary: vein closure AND removal of the dead vein. He performed the closure and when I returned 2 days later, he exclaimed "look at that beautiful vein!" Then he asked If I made appt. for 2nd procedure. 1st one did absolutely nothing (nurse took a "before" picture in which if he had checked,he could see no improvement) except kill the wrong vein. I went through the whole ordeal for nothing.
We are sorry if you did not get enough information. Treatments, as are described in our brochures/paperwork explain -MOST people will need a 2-stage treatment. First we treat the "refluxing feeder" vein causing varicose veins. Only if NEEDED do we perform the 2nd stage to remove the bulging vein(s). If this was not explained, or if there is so much information it was missed, we apologize. This is why patients "sign off" that they have received all info, and it is provided to read as well.
