Dr. Schneider is a very knowledgeable and compassionate physician. He gives thorough explanations of the patient's condition and options that are available. He won't recommend having tests or a surgical procedure if it's not needed. I had sclerotherapy on both legs more than 10 years ago. My ultrasound last year was very similar to the one I had 10 years ago.

Everyone at the office is very friendly and attentive to your needs. The receptionist, Tech, Nurse and Dr Schneider all make you feel at ease and assure you have the information pertinent to your issue. Dr reviewed the results of the ultrasound in detail and explained what the results reveal for future expectations of the prognosis with treatment options. Feeling at ease lowers anxiety and creates an healthier environment.
