Take your tired, aching legs to Dr. Mark Schwartz

Dr. Mark Schwartz has been involved with vascular surgery for over 15 years and feels that the treatment of vein disease is not given top priority.

When patients go to a vascular surgeon to treat their painful varicose or spider veins, typically they are put on the back burner or given second class status in favor of patients who typically require more attention. Schwartz opened North Shore Vein Center at 1 Hollow Lane in New Hyde Park so he could give these patients his undivided attention.

The advantage of seeing a board certified vascular surgeon is that patients will have a full diagnostic workup to find which treatment is best for their needs. Going to a dermatologist or an aesthetician in a laser center will only give “cookie cutter treatment”- usually ineffective and overpriced methods administered by staff who aren’t properly trained and are busy doing so many other procedures that they cannot focus on you.

“If you suffer from varicose veins or spider veins, your best bet is to see a vascular surgeon who has been trained in diseases of the veins and arteries. I have a full toolbox of all the latest advances in technology to use so you’ll know you’re getting the best care,” Schwartz.

The “Dr. Schwartz Difference” is everything you need to confidently get rid of your uncomfortable and unsightly veins. He is a board certified vascular surgeon with years of experience in treating vascular disease and venous insufficiency. He is Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) certified, so he can perform vascular ultrasound in the diagnosis of vein disease and accurately interpret the test results to determine the most optimal treatment protocol. Schwartz uses the newest, state-of-the-art Cool Touch Laser Technology, the most comfortable laser treatment available with rapid relief of symptoms, no downtime, less bruising than traditional laser treatment and minimal, if any, scarring and are all outpatient procedures done right in his office.

“I use microsurgical treatment under a local anesthetic that will have you walking out of the office and resuming full activity the same day,” Schwartz said.

The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 to 6 p.m., takes most major insurances and the vast majority of procedures are covered by insurance.
