Then, the kind doctor laid down the detailed treatment plan and told me exactly how many treatments and type of management my specific case would most probably need. Dr. Fattahi used the newest state of the art Endovascular therapy (Radial Laser System) along with the most current type of sclerotherapy all the while continuing to use ultrasound to make sure accuracy and his mapping were followed. Unlike all other clinics that use air to make foam for sclerotherapy of varicose veins, Dr. Fattahi uses the physiologic medical grade CO2 gas in producing foam for sclerotherapy, which remarkably makes this treatment a lot more safe. The follow-up management was also timely and most thorough to ensure that all procedures done were satisfactory.
I cannot say enough about the professionalism of how I was treated by everyone in the office. As a physician myself, I have the utmost respect for Dr. Fattahi and his medical staff and am very happy to have been a patient at his clinic. With great confidence, I recommend this clinic to any patients that may be in need of management with varicose veins.
I don’t know how but she ended up seeing Dr. Fattahi in Sep 2015 about 4000 miles away from our home in Canada and she was cured in 3 days! Not only she was treated like a queen by the staff at the clinic but she was unbelievably cured once and for all by Dr. Fattahi. When my mother called me all excited from San Jose after seeing Dr. Fattahi, the story of this humble man and his staff brought tears to our eyes. Him and his staff are true humans in heart and cared about my mother on her first visit.
Dr, Khalil, thank you from four grateful children of Raha in Canada. You are our hero of the year.☺
The first time I experienced Dr Fattahi’s new foam-washout sclerotherapy…wow, what a difference! I experienced only minimal swelling, little bruising, no pain, and less trapped blood as compared to regular foam sclerotherapy that other doctors do. Within only 2 days, I couldn’t tell by looking at my leg that I had gone through sclerotherapy while my leg felt great for first time after months of experiencing pain in my calf. The injection site was definitely less painful in comparison to regular sclerotherapy. I could swim, run without pain from. Furthermore, I liked knowing that the medicine went in, did it’s job, and then was pulled out (removed) from other end of the varicose vein without exposing my body to potential risks of regular foam-sclerotherapy using Dr. Fattahi’s new invented technique of sclerotherapy.
I am so happy that my painful large calf varicose vein, that was a source of many problems for me and my lifestyle, is gone in one session which appeared simple in Dr. Fattahi’s hands.
Thank you Dr. Fattahi and staff for making it a pleasure to come to your office.
He performed an ultrasound and found that I had severe venous reflux in my greater saphenous vein. He performed an ELVeS treatment, which was “outpatient”, no anesthesia and zero scarring. After a couple of weeks I began to feel better and after 3 months my leg was virtually free of pain. Not only that, but the ugly purple and red spots on my lower leg are gone because he followed up with the foam scherotherapy too which is not offered at most hospitals.
What I learned through this entire situation is that vascular surgeons specialize in arteries, and in my case initially missed a venous problem. Also, so many doctors do not recognize the fact that venous problems can cause severe pain. Dr. Fattahi specializes in treatment of venous problems that are advanced and modern. He takes his work very seriously and I feel confident in his medical advice and treatments. The treatment I received at the Vein Specialty Clinic was superb in every way.
Years ago, I had severe varicose veins that were worsening all the time. These veins ranged from spider-like to thick, heavy, rope-like veins, covering my entire leg area as well as ankles.
Both my parents had severe varicosities. My sister had multiple surgeries as a young adult in college. As an example of result of work of other doctors, my sister had a total of three vein surgeries over few years. Even after multiple surgeries that were done by physicians other than Dr. Fattahi, she still gets ulcerations plus many other related problems. Now, my sister is convinced to make the long trip to see Dr. Fattahi.
Well, lo and behold, after I was referred by Dr Felix Lee, my great cardiologist, my first visit with Dr. Fattahi opened choices of office based non-surgical treatments that I previously had no idea existed. After getting the suggested treatments, my legs that were covered by numerous varicose and spider veins, are free of unwanted veins, I have gained comfort, lost anguish, enjoy wearing my favorite clothing, and wholeheartedly support and recommend Dr. Fattahi, and his unique in-depth approach and procedures. He has mastered all the modern non-surgical treatments of varicose veins. Dr. Fattah has perfected the level of expertise that many physicians wish to reach. I am truly fortunate that my Dr. Fattahi chose this specialty for not only his occupation but also his life’s work.
In addition to being a very knowledgeable physician, Dr. Fattahi is a very gentle and caring physician who was kind enough to answer my questions via e-mail before my appointment.
I would like to express my appreciation for the wonderful work you have done in erasing my varicose veins that were very prominant on one of my legs. Shortly after seeing other physicians and surgeons, it was apparent that just sclerotherapy, the way they administered it, was not working. Plus, I was discouraged to see that just consulting with other vein specialists would cost me $700.00. Through a friend I found your office and spent 45 minutes with you on my first visit at fee that was considerably less. I am extremely satisfied with your treatments and can now wear walking shorts again and playtennis and not be embarrassed about my leg.
You and your office staff were great to work with and I would recommend your vein treatment approach and techniques to anyone. Thank you so much.
Just a quick note to express my appreciation in the work that you are doing. I had been to many doctors over the years for treatment for my varicose veins and the results were always less than desirable. Your whole approach made sense to me and the foam-sclerotherapy worked great. Since starting treatments with you, my symptoms have completely disappeared and my legs are looking better all the time. If in the future I see any new vein problems, I will not hesitate to call your office.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent care I received at your office. After dealing with varicose veins for almost 5 years, I can’t believe that my legs are free of those unsightly veins. No more dealing with being embarrassed to wear skirts or shorts. It fells like living a miracle! In addition, I really appreciate the extra time you took with my post-treatment followup. My legs have come a long way since my ELVeS procedure.I am extremely happy with the results. I have recommended you to all my friends who have vein problems. Lucy, my friend who recently came in to have treatments there, is quite satisfied with her treatment results. I won’t hesitate to come back to your clinic, if in the future I notice any new vein problems.
Once again, thanks for everything,
I contacted Dr. Fattahi and arranged an appointment immediately. He performed an ultrasound procedure on my legs to trace sources of the problem. I was impressed with the amount of information provided, as he kept me continually updated as to what and why he was planning his stepwise approach. His skill was impressive! His way of using sclerotherapy was much less painful than the laser procedure I had endured at another clinic. Dr. Fattahi at first actually corrected the source of my vein problem.
I was very pleasantly surprised to have finished the treatment within half the time expected (only three treatments) and at a significantly lower cost than if I had stayed with laser procedures.
My total experience with the doctor and his staff has been very positive and rewarding. My thanks to all of you.
Dr. Fattahi has obtained a high caliber of training and experience. I am grateful to have had the privilege of being his patient. Thank you for your help, I will definitely make appointments with Dr. Fattahi when I am able to travel back to California from Texas, if I see any new vein problems in the future.

Hear From Our Patients
It is with great delight that I have the opportunity to share my experience, as a patient, in regards to our fabulous Dr. Fattahi. . .
I have been a patient of Dr. Fattahi since December 2007 for different vein related problems. I have experienced the ELVeS procedure, foam sclerotherapy,. . .
I had unsightly veins that ultimately caused me to be too self-conscious to wear skirts or shorts. I first paid several hundred dollars to a laser dermatologist to remove the veins...

Spider veins are small, irregular, purplish or bluish unsightly vessels. Slightly larger and greenish veins, always feed spider veins. Achieving good results depends on treatment of spider and feeder veins.
Varicose veins always result from abnormal flow of blood in opposite the normal direction. In such cases, there is an incompetence of the one way barriers (valves) between the deep and superficial leg vein systems, leading to abnormal flow of blood from the larger deep veins into the superficial smaller veins and creation of bulging varicose veins that often have a zigzag pattern and cause a variety of symptoms.
