R.F., age 68, moved to the United States when she was 22 from Milan, Italy, where she had been born and raised. Even though she taught herself to read and write English, and speaks the language well, she could not come up with the right word to describe Veintec’s Dr. Robert K. Thompson and staff.

“So precise, so excellent,” R.F. begins. “No, excellent would not be the right word to say. Outstanding is not going to be enough. I don’t know what word in English means best of the best.”

Dr. Thompson performed a right greater saphenous vein laser ablation and shin miniphlebectomy on Rinalda after she was referred to him by her primary care physician.

R.F. says she had no apprehension about having the procedures, which took less than one hour. “I just went in and trusted my doctor. I had been told he was the best, and I was thrilled with the results.”

She previously ran a cleaning service business and R.F. keeps busy now with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. “I stay very active. I do whatever I can to help people,” she says. “I like to do things for others. When they call, I go!”

“I was very fortunate to have an outstanding doctor.”
