3 out of 5 stars Sclerotherapy

Poor experience

I had sclerotherapy more than one year ago and I am left with a scar and discoloration around it, plus other discolored spots in a different area on the same leg, that look worse than my initial spider veins. The scar resulted after a bad ulcer; luckily there was no infection, but the wound was pretty bad right after the procedure and I had serious doubts that will heal without leaving any...

Amazing Treatment!! - Manhattan, NY

Dr Khitin evaluated me for my spider veins and I decided to do the treatment same day. Since then, I did another two sessions. They do a combination of laser and injections for best results, and they do an amazing job. I had great results. I did a lot of research before coming in and I'm glad I picked this office.

Great Doctor! - Brooklyn, NY

I had a long history of pain and tenderness in my legs. Dr Khitin really did an amazing job because I have no symptoms I had before and it feels just great. I will schedule my follow up visit this month just to make sure everything is well. Also, they have two locations, and you can pick which is more convenient for each visit.

Few of my friends also scheduled their...

Dr. Khitin and the staff at New York Vein Treatment is wonderful to work with. I found him to be extremely skillful and compassionate Surgeon. The procedure was exactly how he explained it would be. It was quick and no complications. My only complaint was wearing the compression stockings! The office staff was extremely helpful, especially with getting my insurance to approve the procedure....

Excellent Doctor and Practice - Manhattan, NY

I came here for a consultation for bulging veins on my right thigh. Dr. Khitin was very polite and made sure to explain thoroughly my options for the treatment. I am very satisfied and relieved after seeing him and will definitely be getting the endovenous laser therapy in about 6 weeks, which is the time I have to wait with my insurance to cover the whole procedure.

I Can Recommend Dr.Khitin to Everyone - Brooklyn, NY

I was looking for the doctor who can help me with my veins problem. There so many vascular surgeons here in NY but not everyone can perform the procedure correctly.

He is prompt, yes, but very...
