Patient Comments (1)
in Centreville, VA |
Over the past ten years, Dr. Podolsky has performed both laser therapy and vein stripping to treat the painful, unsightly bulging varicose veins on both of my legs. He is extremely caring, sincere and empathetic and always took his time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly discuss evaluation and treatment options. Due to Dr. Podolsky's excellent surgical skills and meticulous methods to prevent scarring, I am happy to wear shorts and swimsuits, again.
