Testimonials

"The staff at the Vascular Institute of Atlanta is wonderful. I chose Dr. Ricotta because I wanted the best and I was not disappointed. I received the newest state of the art treatment for varicose veins at the Vein Center. It was a short procedure in the office without incisions or needles. I was back to my normal activities, including exercise, a few hours later. All of my symptoms and my varicose veins are gone. I highly recommend Dr. Ricotta and his team!"
