The right treatment for your needs!

This is the 3rd time that I see Dr. Goldman. He has done laser to my surgery scar and sclerotherapy for my veins (legs). He is very professional, listen to all your questions and offers you the right treatment. What I like the most is that he lets you know when you don't need an extra procedure, treatment or product even if you ask for it.
