Dr. Anton and his staff were wonderful. I arrived for my appointment and moments after I sat down, I was called back to an examining room. The nurse took my blood pressure and asked me a few questions and gave me a gown to change into. Dr. Anton knocked on the door within 5 minutes and examined me. He took the time to explain to me what is going on with my varicose veins and why. He explained the next step and how he can correct the problem and end the pain I'm experiencing. I scheduled another appointment for an ultrasound and they were able to get me in within the week. I'm very impressed with the quality of the care I'm receiving and the courtesy with which it is being delivered.

I have to admit, I have never had or seen a more thorough, very kind, and knowledgeable doctor. I felt very comfortable with dr. Anton and it was so nice to not be rushed with all the questions I had!! this was my first visit and after meeting with this wonderful man for his medical examination and the test I had performed, I fully trust in him and look forward to seeing him again. I have and will continue to refer him, although he is quite a distance for me he is 100% worth the trip!

Reviewed on Jan 28, 2020

MY BIGGEST CONCERN OR COMPLAINT IS THAT NO DOCTOR IS BEING TRAINED TO DO VEIN INJECTIONS AS WELL AS DR ANTON. His protocols and methods are unmatched by other vascular doctors. There is no pain involved and recovery is immediate. PLEASE look into Dr Anton training a new group of doctors to carry on when he retires. I know at least 5 of my friends see him on a regular basis including me. Thank you.
