Dr. Luis Barajas

Why I enjoy phlebology:

“Phlebology is a field that offers real results to patients who often suffer silently from varicose veins. In the practice of medicine, I’ve always desired to do more for these patients. My staff and I enjoy helping a diverse patient base that can be treated successfully for varicose veins.”

Debra Gaul, Nurse PractitionerNurse Practitioner Debra Gaul

Why I enjoy phlebology?

“Helping people who have had many years of  the symptoms of varicose veins is very rewarding. So often patients wait until the disease is very advanced because they never knew it could be treated and their pain could be resolved. Often I hear from my patients how they are amazed at how well they feel after treatment.”
