Next: Meet our Team


I am an RN and had resisted treatment for my varicose veins because I thought surgery was the only way to resolve my problems. I feared the complications that could come as a result of having surgery. However, I was surprised at the fast, easy procedure with minimal discomfort and results beyond my expectations!
