Dr. Richard Rosenfeld knows the way to a person’s heart. As a phlebologist and Diplomat of the American Board of Phlebology, he studies the actual pathways to the heart: the veins. At Advanced Vein & Laser Centre, he uses his knowledge to treat patients’ unwanted spider and varicose veins, offering them improved confidence when wearing shorts or swimsuits. Before a procedure, he performs a complimentary consultation to design a treatment plan customized to each patient.
Dr. Victor Manuel Nava's extensive training and surgical career have taken him across the country and back again. After an internship in Baja, California, he completed his general-surgery residency in Wilmington, North Carolina. After 14 years in the Tar Heel State, he came back to California in 2002 and opened his own private practice, where he puts his extensive training and artistic touch to good use performing a full slate of cosmetic procedures, including facelifts, breast augmentations, and liposuction. Not all of his services are surgical, though; he also offers laser hair removal and acne treatments, as well as dermal fillers that diminish wrinkles and render skin smoother than a newborn bowling ball.
