Sclerotherapy is a technique designed to close unsightly spider veins on legs, face or other body areas. Several substances can be injected to cause this outcome. While providing identical results and downtime, detergents/foaming agents are generally considered painless while hypertonic saline injections are somewhat painful. Sclerotherapy is used for the treatment of larger spider veins. It is often followed by sclerolaser treatments which resolve extremely fine vessels that did not take to sclerotherapy.

Depending on the examination, ultrasound may be necessary to exclude reflux, which may hamper treatment success. If reflux is detected, a consultation with a vascular surgeon may be necessary to remove underlying varicosities.

What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

Dr took time to answer all my questions.

#12022-05-22

Excellent service; thanks for not making me wait to be seen, like I do in every other doctor's office!

#22011-06-08 09:39:58

The Dr treated me as a Person, not a commodity. She talked to me so I could understand what needed to be done and what possible courses of actions needed to be taken. I enjoyed the fact that the Dr. took time to listen to me & took action considering my desires as well.

#32021-12-30

I came here because my previous doctor's staff was not friendly or helpful. I am very glad I switched. Everyone here has been very nice and professional

#42021-07-28

The thorough exam that Dr. Ringpfeil gave me. The professionalism of the entire staff. Everything from the ambience to the music.

#52022-06-12

I especially liked the friendliness of the staff and doctor. Also, this office is beautiful. I've never seen a doctor's office that compares with this one.

#62022-06-24

It is clearly evident taht Dr. Ringpfeil is genuinely motivated by listening to your full symptoms, issues and then selecting the approach that is best for you. I scheduled my appt with the hopes of undergoing pricey treatments. Rather than signing me up and taking my check, she insisted that we first address the cause of my problems. Obviously, her goal is to heal the patient, not simply select the treatments that would be most lucrative for her. Impressive.

#72022-06-30

good service

#82011-04-19 10:17:20

I really liked that I felt as though I was in a warm and friendly environment vs the sterile and cold feel many other physicians offices maintain. I also thought the tablet P.C. was very cool!

#92022-04-06

The care, attention and kindness were remarable--thank you!

#102022-03-23

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

I was feeling a bit thirsty the whole stay in the office, maybe making some water available during waiting time would make the stay more comfortable.

#12022-05-12

cannot be improved

#22022-02-12

#62021-07-16

nothing everything is fine as is.

#72021-12-18

Service was excellent, keep up your service as is.

#82021-08-07

The restroom could be cleaner.

#92011-01-19 08:56:51

Please consider offering more appointments after 5pm since it can be a challenge to take time off from work.
