My wife and I went into Dr. Roger Koreen's office to get our skin checked and a few problem areas treated. We did not have any skin doctor and others we tried had appointments that were over 6 months away. We were pleased to get an appointment not too far in advance. When we got there the office was pleasant and the people nice. Dr Koreen was very friendly and took his time in caring for us. Later, I came back for further treatment and again it was a pleasant experience. I thanked him for his knowledge and ability to help me out. Thanks Dr. Koreen!Marianne WMore reviews
Unfortunately, I have had many experiences with doctors. My father had recommended me to Dr. Koreen about 15 years ago. First you will be greeted by very friendly and warm receptionists. The waiting room is extremely clean and comfortable with plenty of seating, magazines and TV’s. The wait time is always reasonable (10-15mins) considering Dr. Koreen always spends quality time for exam and questions (never rushed). He always educates you on the most modern treatments and offering the best options. Dr. Koreen now treats my teenage kids after many years of superior treatment and second to none care. I strongly trust and highly recommend Dr. Koreen and his staff.Thomas MMore reviews

Treatment for varicose veins is available for Huntington, NY area patients
By Dr. Roger Koreen
Varicose veins can be exceptionally troubling for patients. Dr. Roger Koreen of Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center of Huntington, NY offer two types of treatment for varicose veins:
Vascular laser therapy
Sclerotherapy has been available for decades. This treatment requires a sclerosing solution to be injected into the vein. This solution will close the vein and allow blood to redirect to stronger, healthier veins in the leg. Sclerotherapy is mildly uncomfortable though it is one of the most effective treatment options. It gets right to the source of the problem and provides a permanent solution.
Vascular laser therapy
The second option for varicose vein removal – as well as the removal of small spider veins – is vascular laser therapy. Vascular laser therapy uses laser light to penetrate the veins and reduce their appearance. Patients find that vascular laser therapy is more comfortable than sclerotherapy.
Which treatment is right for me?
Patients often have different desires when it comes to how they want to treat their varicose veins. Dr. Roger Koreen takes the time during his consultation to educate patients on each of the treatments and help them make a knowledgeable decision in regards to which is most appropriate for their situation.
