5 star reviews by actual patients

5 Star Reviews from our Patients!

Great practice, I’ve been receiving wonderful care, and I’m being treated by Dr. Sarah Lucas, that is extremely professional. Thank you

This is the best vein clinic I’ve been to!!! A caring and talented staff of physicians, technicians and office staff. Dr. Amanda Steinberger is excellent in her field. She has treated my varicose vein which are looking and feeling remarkably improved. I highly recommend her and this office.

The staff at La Jolla Vein Care Center are outstanding. They are friendly and helpful. Dr. Lucas and my ultrasound tech were both very thorough, kind and answered all of my questions. The new office was beautiful. I feel very confident that I am in good hands and that any upcoming treatments will be successful. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable.

I have had several procedures done at LJVV, ranging from medically necessary vascular ablation to cosmetic sclerotherapy. Every person in the office, from the front desk to the doctors, is welcoming, professional and skilled at what they do. I am very happy with my results and highly recommend them.

Very professional, courteous, and kind staff. Anna is the best. Dr. DeYoung is a caring person. He’s a precision expert with minimal invasive procedures. I highly recommend this facility for vein care.

The staff all performed up to the same high levels that I had noted in other reviews. Dr. Steinberger was open to responding to all my concerns. Alejandra the medical assistant was very cordial and concerned about my comfort and providing me with any information I requested. The same professionalism with personal warmth was demonstrated by the receptionist Hailey Nature. She was more invested in providing me with a positive experience than any other receptionist I have encountered in my many years. Thanks to all.

I knew I’d have a good experience after talking with the receptionist that made my appointment. She was very friendly and got me in to my initial appointment the next day. Once I walked into the office I was greeted with smiles and taken back within a few minutes of my arrival. During my ultrasound I was asked if I was comfortable and had a great conversation with the tech. I have an appointment with the doctor to go over my results next week. So far this office and the staff get 5 stars from me. I’m terrible with names but they’ll know who I’m talking about Thank you for the great experience.

La Jolla Vein and vascular is one of the best working systems of doctors and assistants and back and front office workers that I have ever seen. An absolute pleasure to work with!!!!

The staff members that I interacted with were all professional, conscientious and empathetic to my complaints and discomfort. I was taken into the ultrasound room a few minutes before my appointment time. I did not have a long wait before the ultra-sonographer came and ran the machine. It was also a short wait before Dr. Steinberger came into the room with a warm, welcoming smile. We discussed my ultrasound and the things I was experiencing. I scheduled another appointment for next year and was offered a bottle of water upon leaving the office. All in all, I thought it was a very satisfactory appointment.

I was greeted kindly, brought to the exam room quickly, had a pleasant ultrasound experience with Bree who was very friendly and talked with me the entire time. Quick check-out and happy to have experienced such as lovely office and staff. Thank you!!
