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.

The friendliness with the staff kept me comfortable.

#22018-12-17

Doctor took the time to asnswer questions; computer technology

#32018-12-07

The office ambiance is exceptional! Since I am a musician, I really enjoyed the soothing, classical music playing softly in the background. The fresh flowers also add a nice touch. I was extremely impressed by the cleanliness of the facilities and the professional and thorough treatment I received by Dr. Ringpfeil. The technological efficiency of the office was also very impressive!

I called 6 different Dermatology offices (including 2 I had been to previously), and none were willing to fit me is as you were. Thank you for your compassion!

#52019-05-12

the cute scrubs:-) knowledge of the dr. and staff.

#62018-09-01

The attention Dr. Abraham gave to me.

#72012-07-24 12:29:37

Clear information about treatment options which had not been offered in the past. It is possible that these treatment options are new, but it is also possible that the physician is especially knowledgeable.

#82018-11-28

I was very happy to be able to get an appointment so quickly. The doctor was very thorough.Also, now I know what do do the next time my problem reappears and know that it can be taken care of.

#92018-11-16

The whole visit

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

I recommended this practice to a family member but they showed up 15 mins late to their first appt. due to traffic and were turned away (after traveling over an hour to get here). I would suggest on the first visit to allow more leeway for late appointments (try to fit them in) and then explain the late policy for all appointments moving forward.

#12011-09-21 14:47:49

any information on services provided for enhancing skin apperance

#22019-03-21

While I totally understand the late policy, unfortunately my daughter and I drove 1.5 hrs to the facility and given the weather and errorous directions, we ended up being 7 mins late. I immediately called the office while on route to explain that we were lost and sought correct directions. The receptionist was very curt, short and condesending. Upon our arrival, there was no warm greeting and very limited eye contact. Again,as a heath care provider myself, I appreciate the need to follow a schedule, however, our appointments were in direct succession and I do not think it would have had a significant impact on the work schedule, given our special circumstance.

#32011-03-24 10:10:11

I had problems with my insurance. Since you took my insurance information over the phone it might have been nice to know that before I came in so I could have fixed it.

#42011-05-19 10:14:50

I have an unusual challenge getting to and from the office. Your practice is doing a great job; I will deal with the transportation issues.

#52011-03-21 10:03:43

NO COMMENT AT THIS TIME.

#62018-09-03

more availability for appointments.

#72019-03-31

everything was great.

#82011-03-18 11:09:57

There was some wait between my initial interview with the medical assistantand my meeting the physician. This wait could have been shorter.

#92019-03-21
