“Being a male in my sixties, I had large varicose veins. They were painful and unsightly. My local M.D. recommended I visit the L.A. Vein Center. After a bit of investigation, I made an appointment. The office is very clean and professional. The staff is first rate and guides you through the insurance nightmares. Dr. Lee is very clear and precise and explains any procedure in detail. The follow-up appointments are comforting and underline the great work. They even laugh at my stupid jokes. I highly recommend Dr. Lee and her staff.“
