5 out of 5 stars Laser Treatment

I had my venous lake removed.

I have had a blue venous lake on my bottom lip for many years. I had seen other doctors who wanted to do major surgery.

I was confident that I was getting great treatment.

5 out of 5 stars Photofacial

Great Experience! I had an Intense Pulses Light (IPL) treatment with the ICON Max G system for facial spider veins, otherwise known as a form of a photo facial. It did amazing things for my skin. I had a few spots (spider veins) on my face that could not be covered with any amount of makeup.

My Legs Are Ready for Summer

Dr. Nackman is extremely professional. He explained the process and made me feel very comfortable in my choice of physician and procedure. His office staff is wonderful and very professional. I was impressed with Dr. Nackman that he did not make me wait for a long period of time for my appointment, unlike so many other doctors that I have visited. He was punctual for my appointment within 3 to 4 minutes. Thank you for respecting my time as a patient. I would highly recommend Dr. Nackman for any vein treatment or hand rejuvenation treatments.
