Very thorough explained my options. Dr. Fakhoury was knowledgeable and answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns. Highly recommend him
The entire experience was pleasant and informative. In addition to making me feel comfortable, Dr. Dietzek ensured that I understood his findings. He also gave his opinion on the next steps I should take. Having personally experienced Vein & Vascular Institute, I would recommend it to others.
Everyone was very nice, didn't have to wait long and I got an answer for my problem.
I see Dr. Fakhoury on a weekly basis, for the past year...his knowledge is amazing as is his bedside manner. The staff, from the front desk, to the nurses and doctors, to the people behind the scenes...more like family to me.

Great experience! Staff is welcoming and very thorough!
Everyone was very helpful, kind and friendly
Appointment was made promptly everyone I spoke to on the phone and in their office were wonderful and very helpful.
I was examined by Dr. Elias Fakhoury, who performed a GSV Clarivein Venous Closure procedure on my right lower leg last year due to Venous Insufficiency. Dr. Fakhoury will perform a Venous Closure procedure on my left lower leg in the very near future. During this visit a thorough Ultrasound of both legs was performed. A detailed medical history was performed by Alyssia, and Dr. Fakhoury examined both of my legs, as well as to explain the Venous Closure procedure he will perform on my left leg. Everyone, from the front office staff to the Ultrasound specialist, to Alyssia, to Dr. Fakhoury were extremely pleasant, helpful, and knowledgeable about my leg condition. I look forward to another successful Venous Closure performed by Dr. Fakhoury.
The staff was kind and professional. The only part I say I had a problem with is not being informed I should have purchased compression stockings instead I was recommended to purchase them at an additional $60. Which I could have purchased from Amazon for a fraction of the price. I actually believe they should be incorporated in the amount of procedure. Other than that The NPC was fantastic.. 🤞🏼 I’m hoping I will heal great..
Staff is very friendly, helpful and willing to answer questions. Appointments move quickly with little wait/downtime. Would strongly encourage family and friends to see them.
Dr. Dietzek is very knowledgeable and courteous and professional. His staff is also excellent.
Exceptional service. Made me feel like I mattered.
My experience was pleasant. I felt relaxed. Every detail was explained to me. I definitely recommend the Vein & Vascular Institute.
Dr. Dietzek is easy to talk to and explains everything in a way that I can understand. The entire office staff is friendly and welcoming. I was really nervous when I got there (I'm always nervous at the doctor's) but I feel better going back for future appointments.
Quick in and out. Very professional, clearly explaining. Would recommend.
Very informative consultation. I feel very positive moving forward with my vein treatment plan.
The staff was really nice and the doctor we're very sympathetic to my recent loss of my son. There wasn't too long of a wait which was nice
