Recent Testimonials

Contact Dr. Bunke if You are Self Conscious About Your Veins!
I have been wearing long pants and skirts for 29 years because of 'splatter' veins on both calves that developed when I was pregnant with our second son. Now, I can't believe I waited so long to do something about it! The treatments to me were a 'non-event' and a few days out of my life in surgical stockings was nothing compared to the joy of a stylishly shorter skirt or walking shorts. If you are self-conscious about the road maps on your legs, I have two words for you....Don't wait!
