“Virginia Vein Care operates with impeccable integrity. This is important with any medical service, of course, but cannot be taken for granted. Their goal is to fix your legs, not nickel & dime you. Suffice to say, I encountered prior issues in this industry, particularly with corporatized approaches, where numbers and profits drive treatment approaches.
Day One, their team of seasoned professionals actually showed me underlying issues using ultrasound, explained everything in fully understandable terms, and mapped out the optimal treatment plan. This was a first for me, a pleasant surprise.
And I have entrusted only Virginia Vein Care with this specialist care in years since. And of course, recommended them to others I know experiencing any vascular issues. Schedule an initial consult, and you will not be disappointed.”
“Dr. Markovitz and his staff are all true professionals, the best vein care professionals I’ve discovered. Unlike any other specialist, VVC provides a comprehensive and thorough approach to vein treatment. Expert ultrasound scanning, identifying root causes of other vein problems, then addressing those first. You can be fully confident VVC will resolve your vein issues in the optimal way. By addressing root causes (main problem veins) first, then varicose/spider veins last, you’re guaranteed of this specialist work done properly. And… less chance of future problems. Great work from this clinic, I really appreciate their efforts!”
