The Patient Experience

Vein treatment can be scary. Not everyone is knowledgeable about what causes veins to be visible and painful, and treatment itself can be intimidating. A knowledgeable, considerate specialist can turn a stressful procedure into an easy, comfortable one. The best vascular surgeons in Orlando at Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center seek to deliver the best treatment possible, guaranteeing our patients enjoy a pleasant treatment experience.

Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center was founded by John D. Horowitz in 2001. For over a decade, our team has delivered the best vein care possible to our patients. From a patient’s first phone call through their consultation, diagnostic exams, treatment, and follow-up visits, patients know that they’re not a number; they’re an individual that the staff genuinely cares about. Many have acknowledged the difference — we’ve been voted best in Orlando by readers of Orlando Family Magazine.

We offer minimally invasive and noninvasive treatments. You won’t see painful vein stripping on your treatment plan! Our treatments are quick enough to be done during your lunch break and have minimal downtime, so you can get back to your daily life as soon as possible. Our board-certified physicians have extensive knowledge and experience in vein care and are committed to making sure you understand what’s best for your veins.

Don’t just take our word for it — our patients themselves have much to say about the quality vein treatment they received under our care. Some patients talk to us about their concerns over the appearance of their veins, while others are active and worry about healing time. They learn quickly about their current vein health. One patient shared, “I thought [my varicose veins] would go away, but I wasn’t very educated on the whole vein process. But that’s what the staff here did as well. They explained to me, ‘this is what you have, and it’s important that you take care of it.’”

Other patients may walk in with outdated understandings of what vein care looks like. Another patient said, “My parents both had a procedure done for their vein discomfort . . . they said it was very uncomfortable, and I was not looking forward to having this done myself. I can tell that they’ve definitely come a long way with the research, and I understand that Dr. Horowitz is very instrumental in that.” Many patients have the same first impression about his practice. They note that he stands out among other physicians; he’s comforting, attentive, and takes ample time to communicate and explain the procedure to patients.

One patient praised his expertise in vein care. As someone in the medical community, she knows a knowledgeable physician can make a huge difference during treatment. And there was no question about who her top pick would be for vein care. She explained, “I came across different vascular doctors in the Orlando area. But when it came [time] for me to do my procedure and choose a doctor to do my legs, I came back to Dr. Horowitz because I know he’s one of the best here in Orlando.”

The care goes beyond Dr. Horowitz. Every member of our staff is equally attentive to our patients. One patient called it “hand-holding,” but not in a negative way; when it comes to your overall health, a little bit of hand-holding can go a long way in ensuring that you are comfortable about your procedure. “Let’s face it, this is scary and it’s not comfortable, but it’s nothing like what I thought it was going to be. They made me very comfortable and very safe.” Another patient noted that she even received a phone call from both Dr. Horowitz and our staff post-procedure just to check in and make sure she was still feeling okay.

What about life post-treatment? While the patient experience is important, what matters most is that you see an improvement in your life and health. An active, health-conscious patient was initially worried that she would have to stay out of the gym after treatment. She was reassured that she would be able to return after a few days and quickly saw the impact her treatment had on her activities: “Since I’ve had procedures done, I’ve been able to maintain better shape than I was before. [In] a lot of the classes I would take, my legs would feel very heavy and sluggish. Now that I’ve had procedures done, I’ve been able to be freer with my running and yoga.” With the care that she received from Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center, she — alongside many other patients — has been able to enjoy her favorite activities even more than before.

Would patients recommend Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center to their friends and family? Absolutely. A patient added, “At the end of the procedure, I left this office elated. I could wear shorts again! Dr. Horowitz is a very warm doctor. It made me feel at ease having this done, and I would recommend this to anybody.” Here, patients have everything they need for quality treatment: education, caring staff, and skilled, knowledgeable specialists.
