Professor Vassilis Hadjianastassiou responded to my request within hours and I had an e-consultation the next day. I had a complex history and had seen several doctors. He was quickly able to give an accurate assessment and a clear plan for diagnosis. I would highly recommend.

I received the treatment laser to your veins and subsequently injection sclerotherapy. He was so professional throughout and took so much time to answer all my questions and check on me pre and post treatment to put me at ease. All my veins have disappeared with unoticable scars

Prof Anastassiou operated on my father, doing an Axillo-bifemoral bypass graft 3 yrs ago. My father had a big aortic aneurism which thrombosed and his legs were at risk - now at 84 he is doing very well! He was very thorough/meticulous and has been advising us ever since.
