Patient Reviews

  • "Top notch doctors, staff and facility! Dr. Sivia is very compassionate and takes his time in explaining everything with complete detail. The staff is very efficient and friendly. I was called the same day my primary care physician sent over my referral. I definitely recommend this office for treatment of varicose veins, or any other vascular condition you may have."M.H.

  • "I am so pleased with my results and to be able to walk without the pain! I would definitely recommend Dr. Sivia to anyone with circulation-related problems or in need of vascular surgery. He’s a very caring doctor. He explained my procedure carefully and thoroughly. He let me ask all the questions needed to be sure that I truly understood the surgery I was to have. He is a very kind and gentle man who is dedicated to his profession."V.A.

  • "I had spider veins for three years. Dr. Sivia had me wear compression stockings, but they didn’t work, so I had an ablation done. I was extremely pleased with the results. The office is beautiful, great staff, and the procedure wasn’t painful. Dr. Sivia really took the time to explain the procedure, possible complications, and what to expect as an outcome."G.P.
