Healthy Legs, Happy Patients

Until recently, I suffered from unsightly varicose and spider veins. Dr. Rivard and his entire staff truly care about making a difference in your life from both a health and aesthetic view. Dr. Rivard takes the time to explain what he is doing and why and how it will benefit you. Now I'm 66 and I don't think my legs have felt or looked this good in decades!
