Within 24 hours after each procedure I could take the ace bandage off my treated leg and get back to my normal routine.
My overall experience was five star! And everyone was great – the doctor, front office, and medical assistant staff.
Dr. Ahluwalia is awesome – the greatest! He is the nicest most caring doctor… I call him Dr. A!

Around 20 years ago I was treated under anesthesia in the hospital during a ninety-minute operation called vein stripping. The procedure resulted in significant downtime from work and 30 inches of horrible scars; within ten years the veins came back.
The veins in my legs got worse overtime. My legs looked horrible and disgusting with large bulging varicose veins and lots of swelling, especially at my ankles and in the knee joint. I was unable to grow much hair on my legs and my feet were dry and the skin cracked constantly. The shape of my legs and lack of hair looked terrible visually. I sought advice and it was clear that my symptoms would get worse with age. I did not want the symptoms to get worse and have the way my legs felt and looked become a major problem.
I knew technology improved from my first treatment twenty years ago. I was recommended to Dr. Ahluwalia, who I believe must be the best vascular surgeon in Northern CA!
The actual treatment went smoothly and it was not that uncomfortable at all. A couple of times I told the doctor that I needed a little more numbing medication during the treatment. And when he provided it the discomfort went away. After the procedure I took some pain medication and would elevate my legs. I resumed my regular routine within a couple of days.
