Dr. Salazar is nationally recognized as an expert in providing state-of-the-art vein care using minimally invasive technologies and is at the forefront of modern treatments for chronic venous insufficiency, including radiofrequency and endovenous laser ablations, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, Varithena, and VenaSeal.
“Sitting down one on one with each patient is critical to making sure they are getting the treatments that will benefit them the most. I pride myself on taking the time to understand each patients unique concerns and what they can expect from treatment. Vein disease presents differently in each patient and for that reason, communication is one of the most critical parts of managing vein disease.”Dr. Mario SalazarBoard-Certified Surgeon and Vein Specialist
