He sums up his practice this way, “It is gratifying that I am able to improve the quality of my patients’ everyday lives using minimally invasive techniques that provide positive results with little discomfort. My practice allows me to devote as much time as needed to address my patients questions and concerns. I love what I do.”
TESTIMONIALSMy legs were taking over my life, I was unable to do anything until I came to Dr. M. He has made my life normal again! I can run, jump and dance. I am so thankful to him. I recommend this procedure to everyone who needs it; it truly brings your life back.
I started experiencing a very painful area in my leg. After an MRI, it was discovered that a surgical clamp placed in a vein harvested over 20 years ago was the cause of the pain. I got in to see Dr. M in less than a week. I discovered that the contact number given me was his cell phone. I spoke with him a couple of times and expressed how unusual it was to speak directly with the doctor. He replied that all his patients have his cell number. The office visit was a great experience with a complete explanation of the procedure and enough time for all my questions to be answered. After my office visit I had surgery in 2 days to remove the clip. All this was done in 1 1/2 weeks from my first call for an appointment. Dr. M. and his entire staff are very professional and really care about their patients comfort and concerns. I have never had a medical experience like this and would recommend anyone to Atlanta Vein Specialists.
