Dr. Faro is a very pleasant doctor and really goes out of his way to explain things. His is a relaxed sort of a guy which in my opinion is a good thing. I have had 2 procedures under his professional care and can honestly say that he is the best. The wait time is about 10 minutes as he always has a full waiting room.

I went to Dr. Faro because I wanted to have my spider veins removed. He said testing needed to be done to see if the veins inside my leg were functioning properly. He then said I had reflux in my saphenous vein, I had a venous ablation done and I've had constant pain since. Each time I went back he gave me a different answer then and he couldn't understand why I had pain. I've since gone to 2 top vascular surgeons who said they would have never done the ablation since I had no leg pain.
