How can gradient compression stockings help?vericose_veins.jpg

  • Support the venous and lymphatic system and prevent poor circulation
  • Promote better venous blood flow which in turn helps prevent and control vein-related diseases

I have been a patient of Dr. Pisarek for a few years now. Every morning I have to say "thank you Dr. P.!". Your care and your treatment renew my energy... no more pains in my lower back, knee and foot. With your help I lost 20 pounds and I am keeping it off. I am really grateful to you and your wife Hilda for taking care of me. My retirement got a new meaning, thanks to you.
