In the surgery area we had music, “name that tune”, and a lively discussion with the doctor’s assistant and ultrasound technician in the room all the while Dr. Rayman keeping his head down doing his job for some two hours straight.
I cannot say enough about the staff. They treat you like family, both pre and post op, and their follow up is excellent. Dr. Rayman is committed to your well being, which was evident from our first meeting. Every detail was handled from my phone calls to insurance to every question I had, my thanks to Alex, the first person you meet when you walk through the door. If Dr. Rayman were a GP he would be mine.
BTW I am married to a doctor, an oncology specialist, so I know a lot of doctors. Dr. Rayman is at the top of the list in terms of training, character, compassion, ability, and follow up.
It is now several weeks out and I have been out of the country this last week followed doctors orders and everything is going well no complications, no problems, nothing,…. even at the gym.
Is Dr. Rayman good at what he does? Absolutely! Today, I also consider him a friend…it does not get much better than that.
Process prior to Beach Cities Vein & Laser Center –
I visited a vein specialist in downtown LA shortly after noticing the vein (this was two years ago). The facilities resembled an old hospital, the service was sub-par and the doctor informed me that the only approach would be to rip out the vein. He described the process as effectively sliding a one-directional stint with barbs (like an arrow) up the vein (from my ankle to my groin) and then pulling it out via force. Needless to say I elected not to continue seeing that vein specialist. Two years passed and while the vein grew in size I simply ignored it and dealt with the discomfort. What prompted me to visit a new doctor was a friend, who happens to be an ultrasound technician, explained that the treatment procedures have advanced. I contacted my dermatologist and that is how I got to Beach Cities Vein & Laser Center.
About my visit to Beach Cities Vein & Laser Center –
The look and feel of Beach Cities Vein & Laser Center is much different from the previous vein specialists facilities that I visited. They are located in El Segundo and a fairly modern building. When you enter their facilities you feel like you are in a professional establishment (hard wood floors, fish tanks – typical nice doctors office setting). They have all the latest equipment for treatment and they are fully paperless. My initial visit involved Dr. Mark Rayman assessing the vein via an ultrasound and determining that the blood flow was the problem (it was not flowing as it should). They took before pictures and then began the healthcare process for coverage. The final step was to schedule the procedure. The procedure took about an hour and involved Radiofrequency ablation. I was wide awake writing emails on my phone during the process. While the process involved placing a stint up my vein (from my ankle to my groin) I felt no pain. The RF process ablated the vein as Dr. Rayman pulled the stint out. I walked out of the procedure and attended a client meeting two hours later. Additionally I went snowboarding at Mammoth the following weekend. It is worth noting that Dr. Rayman did not recommend this much activity immediately after the procedure however I felt no pain. All in all I would give them extremely high marks and I would absolutely use them again.
Thank you, Thank you soo much. You are a magician!!!
Dr. Rayman is my first and only choice for treatment!
I wish him and his staff all the very best and lots of success in his private practice.”
