I have been a patient of Dr. Dietzeck since 2009. I was ASTOUNDED how my spider veins disappeared after my treatment. I go back every couple years to maintain my result because of my occupation as a hair stylist I am on my feet for long periods. The staff is very informative and patient explaining your at home instructions. I have recommended him to many of my clients and friends and they all were very pleased. Dr. Dietzeck’s office is unique and professional you can feel the difference as soon as you walk in!

Love love love Dr Dietzek! Been going here for years. Great service, great staff from the front office to the exam room!
The office has a really good staff, as everyone is professional and friendly. The doctor has done a great job on my legs, as-a lot of the veins are gone. I’m so amazed of how much better my legs look! I can finally wear shorts and not worry about my legs! It’s a liberating feeling.Thank you all so much!! I’m so pleased with the results. ❤️
Professional, friendly, so helpful. Saw me very quickly after a horrible experience at Jefferson Vascular. Very clean office, incredibly efficient. Can’t say enough positive things. And the doctor and technician were top notch.
They performed a thorough ultrasound of my legs and feet. They listen to my concerns and problems I'm having. Then Dr dietzik offered a course of treatment that I think will be effective. So I'm very happy with my visit.
Both Dr. Dietzek and his staff were very efficient and professional. It was a pleasure to work with such a pleasant and knowledgeable staff!
The staff are all so kind and friendly. After checking in the wait was only 1 min (could have been less). They are very thorough and explained everything in terms that I understood.I would definitely recommend.
Awesome Dr/Staff and Facility!
Awesome Dr's and staff.
I had my consultation today and the staff were all extremely friendly. Jill was my nurse and she was truly over the top informative and outgoing. Erika will be doing my procedure next week and I'm so excited and feel so comfortable in her hands.
I had 2 appointments with Vein & Vascular Institute. Both visits were good and the staff very nice.
Although there was much wait time, I feel I received a full exam and was presented with many options moving forward.
Everything was excellent. Looking forward to treatment to repair my issues.
Very good experience
The office visit was far better than I expected. The doctor was the nicest doctor I have ever seen professionally. I seen him for my varicose veins, but he appeared to be interested in my overall well being. During the examination of my legs, I showed the doctor some marks on my skin and his practice provided me the information regarding a dermatologist who could address dermatological issues. My overall experience was excellent, and intend to continue to use the practice when the need arises. I can not say enough good things about my visit. EXCELLENT in all respects.
People are all so kind and knowledgeable !
Dr Charles Dietzek and StaffHands down best place to have viens worked on I'm 44 years old and my legs feel new again
