“Dr Markovitz and his team helped me feel comfortable. From my first greeting throughout the treatments, he and his team were friendly, very helpful and knowledgeable. And I was delighted with the results. My legs actually feel stronger and…well, happy. My legs feel happy. Thank you to the folks at Virginia Vein Care.”
“After a few weeks of vein closure procedures, I was truly sad to have my final procedure done last Monday. Dr. Markovitz and his team are simply wonderful and truly set a high standard for medical care and patient service. Within minutes of my arrival, I was always taken back to the procedure room (never waiting more than 5-7 minutes maximum). After the preliminary ultrasound and prep, Dr. Markovitz arrived within minutes and walked me through each procedure. He made sure to let me know before he did anything I would feel or notice and his phenomenal medical assistants were also keeping an eye on me to make sure I was comfortable and wasn’t feeling any pain. I always left within an half an hour to an hour of my arrival (usually less) and that’s truly a rarity amongst most medical offices. Everyone from the receptionist to the billing specialist and the ultrasound techs were always so helpful, kind and personable. Thank you all so much for making this process so easy!”
Lawrence Markovitz, M.D., has also published 13 articles in scientific journals, created a collaborative poster for the 16th Annual Mayo Conference on Quality, and given eight presentations on his research. Most recently, Dr Markovitz was named a 2020 top vascular surgeon.
