Dr. Gardener and staff are one of a kind. I am so thankful I came here and would tell others that have a problem with their veins you all are the best. Thank you all for being so nice and helpful.

Dr. Gardner and staff are amazing! I was referred by a friend and came for a consultation, not expecting that my veins could be a problem. After each procedure, Dr. Gardner called himself to check-in and see how I was doing. Today, I am thrilled to say the swelling in my legs and ankles has gone down tremendously. Dr. Gardner and every person on his staff are professional, friendly, and truly care about you as a person. My experience has been better than I ever imagined possible.

I had the old fashion vein striping in 1972. The new procedure using varitha was so much easier and quicker recovery time. Follow the doctors direction and your recovery is quick. Walk, walk, walk.

From the minute I booked my appt, the professional, yet friendly and fun staff, made me feel good about finally dealing with my "nurse's legs". Varicose veins that had become more and more unsightly, and more importantly, painful. Dr. Gardner was so attentive to my questions, and explained everything before, during , and after my procedure. He called later that evening to check on me, which I really appreciated. So glad I did this, and really glad I went with Dr. Gardner and his staff.

Dr. Gardner did procedures on both upper legs and lower right leg. The procedures were quick and painless. Dr Gardner, Robin & Mary have all been great. My legs are feeling really good and the swelling is gone. My legs no longer feel tired...ready to get back to a normal life.

The moment I walked into the office I felt welcomed and was treated like I was the only person in the world they were treating. Dr. Gardner and his staff are very detailed in all explanations and care that I received during my procedures. They go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable during each procedure and I greatly appreciate all they have done for me. My results are remarkable and I am no longer in pain.
