My scars take lng too heal, I thk that it's jst me.
Dr. Nadiv Shapira

I would totally recommend this doctor and he has a wonderful med asst (Ceely). They were kind, patient, easy to talk to, friendly and all the things that should be experienced in a doctors office. If I need anything else done, if he can do it, I am going back to him. I recv'd sclerotherapy (injections) last year by 2 different drs in which I had 2 appt each with which left me with brown stainings on my leg. So instead of veins I had these long brown marks which are fading but it's taking a long time. I think that they should have recommended microphlebectomy, instead of sclerotherapy. Dr. Shapira told me that the veins should have been removed instead of injected that's why I had the brown stains. I wished that I would have found him last year when I started receiving treatments. The other drs should have known better. Microphlebectomy, which cost me $1150, is for large bulging veins and sclerotherapy, which cost me $1625, is for the very small or spider veins in my opinion.
