Should have never had this procedure

I was told I had reflux in my saphenous vein and should get an ablation before I had my spider veins done. I've had nonstop nerve pain in my leg since, I've been to 2 other vascular surgeons who said I should not have had the procedure since I had no pain in my leg beforehand. I will never go to Dr. Faro again. This Dr. is too eager to do procedures. Several times I had follow up appointments after the procedure that were canceled because Dr. Faro had emergency heart surgeries to perform and once I had to pitch a fit for them to fit me in.

Unnecessary surgeries??

Dr. Faro is a little bit too eager to perform certain surgeries that other medical professionals would question.

Unprofessional Front Desk

Dr. Faro came highly recommended by several other doctors. He seemed knowledgeable, and eager to share information. However, the staff who work the front desk have been rude and unprofessional both times I have been to the office. On two visits, two different receptionists were confrontational and unprofessional. Dr. Faro may very well be an excellent physician, but it is not worth it to be disrespected by his staff in order to see him. I decided to find another physician.

If I listened to my gut, I don't know if I'd return

Looking now for second opinions. Something is just not the right fit for me in this office, however, Dr. Faro came highly recommended by many professionals that I'd asked.There's always some issue with the desk staff and the wait is never on time. I've never waited less than 30 minutes to see the doctor or 20 to see the person doing sclerotherapy. My last visit was over an hour wait and then another 20 at the end to wait for an office staff person to get off the phone so the doctor could tell her how he wants to schedule me in for future sessions.I should have trusted my gut the first time I visited the office and walked, but I'm invested now. It's not really Dr. Faro's fault, so much as the office and the management.
