Dr. Forestine has expanded his impressive medical skill set to include the treatment of venous diseases and conditions, including that of varicose veins, spider veins, and chronic vein disease, as he now specializes in minimally invasive treatments of chronic venous insufficiency.

He expertly performs varicose vein and spider vein treatments, including endovenous laser ablations, radiofrequency ablations, ultrasound-guided and visual sclerotherapy, laser vein removal, Varithena®, and VenaSeal™. He is dedicated to delivering both pain relief and aesthetic improvements for his patients. He is passionate about providing the New York community with minimally invasive solutions to common, bothersome symptoms — such as restless legs, leg swelling/edema, itching sensations, bulging or visible veins, pain while standing, cramping, and more.

Dr. Forestine boasts a variety of certifications, including advanced cardiovascular life support (ACLS), basic life support (BLS), and pediatric advanced life support (PALS).

“Vein disease is largely underdiagnosed, which leads to worsening symptoms. I often see patients who have suffered for years, not knowing treatments were available and that pain relief was possible. Not only are treatments gentle, but treated veins don’t come back. It’s very rewarding to be able to provide relief for my patients, especially if they’ve been living in pain.”
