“Throughout my early life, I had always been interested in science, in particular the method of inquiry that we call ‘the scientific method.’ Although this interest certainly influenced my career path, my primary reason for becoming a physician and, later, a general and vascular surgeon, was a desire to help people. I wanted to make a positive difference in people’s lives, and I’m proud that I’ve been able to help so many over the past three decades.

“During my career, I’ve had the honor of heading surgery departments, developing and launching hospitals and running large groups of physicians. But for me, the greatest honor – and reward – has been to intervene in the disease process of real people and help them through difficulty. This has been my life’s work, and it’s the reason that I ultimately chose to be in medicine.

\"My mission is to make sure that everyone has access to the top standard of care, from state-of-the-art techniques to the vascular, surgical and aesthetic expertise that will lead to the best results. For me, it’s simple: You deserve the best results, for both function and aesthetics.”

I have been to other tattoo removal centers where I endured a lot of pain and had some post treatment scarring. It looks as if my skin was burned. When I came to see you I was treated so nicely. I didn’t feel uncomfortable at all. The tattoo I was having removed was very colorful and it took 3-4 times before it finally faded away. Thank you so much for treating me with respect during these visits. ~M.J.
