My Varicose Vein Story

Angela Almos, Vein Patient

Best Physician that I have ever seen!!  Dr Bunke explains everything, great bedside manner and she absolutely loves her specialty!!  She spends as much time with you as you need, and always puts your mind at ease with her friendly and respectable approach.  The entire staff is phenomenal which is a plus. They are all professional, and follow up after a procedure. So if you need your veins done, definitely go see Dr. Bunke.

Wonderful!! Dr. Bunke and staff are absolutely the best!! I have suffered from chronic pain in my legs for the past 18 years. I have seen many doctors regarding this problem, and each time I was told that there was nothing that could be done, varicose veins are a cosmetic issue and to wear compression socks. I did, but without any relief. I was losing my mind, I cried and cried. I couldn’t go on like this anymore. So I spent a week researching the best care facilities, to find relief, to gain my life and health back. The most highly rated facility was La Jolla Vein Care. I warily went in for a consultation. At my appointment I started to tell my story and I couldn’t help bursting into tears. I was terrified that I would receive the same excuses and lack of treatment. I was comforted by Dr. Bunke and all the staff, they were incredibly patient, compassionate, and kind. They understood my pain and was prepared to give me the care I so desperately needed. They had all the answers to my questions, and most importantly, a solution to my problems. They worked with my insurance, and after two radio-frequency ablation procedures, and two procedures of sclerotherapy, I feel great!! For the first time in almost 20 years, that pain is gone! I can’t believe it! I slept a full 8 hours for the first time in almost a year. I have a spring in my step, I feel so relieved, energetic, like I have a new lease on life! I can’t wait to sit through a movie, have a leg massage, wear knee high socks, ride my bicycle, sit cross-legged around a campfire, and be able to finally stand again on both feet. To Dr. Bunke and everyone at La Jolla Vein Care: thank you so much, you are wonderful!!!!!

I am so glad I found La Jolla Vein Care! I saw Dr. Bunke for a bulging varicose vein on the back of my calf. I had the radio wave treatment followed by two injections and the vein disappeared within a few weeks.

I was referred to Dr. Bunke by my primary care physician. He was concerned about the “swelling” in my left calf. La Jolla Vein Care quickly set up an appointment, completed a thorough evaluation, gave me clear alternatives and allowed me to start with compression socks. After several months, I realized that the cure was to have the treatments suggested in their original evaluation.
The treatments were promptly scheduled, nearly painless, closely followed by both Doctor and staff(phone calls and follow up ultra sound scans). On each visit I was treated like family, rarely waiting more than 5 minutes and always met with smiles and cheerful encouragement, Great people, great service and great results.
Thank you La Jolla Vein Care.

If anyone is considering treatment of varicose veins, at least the decision on who to see is easy: there is no better physician and staff to see than the amazing folks at La Jolla Vein Care. Dr Bunke is not only a highly-skilled physician who is obviously at the top of her profession, but she is one of the most friendly and approachable doctors I have ever met. She has produced flawless results for me and I couldn’t be happier! Her staff always has been just as remarkably friendly and professional at all times — definitely a reflection of the high standards set at La Jolla Vein Care. We San Diegans are fortunate to have such a high-caliber physician and staff in our own backyard — bravo to you, Dr Bunke and to your amazing staff!

I have been having treatments at La Jolla Vein Care for the past few months and I have nothing but rave reviews. The office is the perfect combination of professionalism, kindness, efficiency, empathy and expert medical treatment and care. From Michelle at the front desk who is so gracious about organizing and setting up appointments to Rosie, Anna and everyone else involved in patient care I say BRAVO. Whether it is Monday morning or Friday afternoon the office is always functioning smoothly. Dr. Bunke is kind, friendly and so knowledgeable that you feel very comfortable that you will receive excellent treatment. She is always willing to answer any questions and I appreciate that she is available after hours should anything arise. All in all I have only good things to say about everyone at La Jolla Vein Care and will not only continue to receive treatment there, when needed, but have recommended the clinic to several people….without hesitation! Thank you to everyone at La Jolla Vein Care.

Fantastic! Everyone was really great. The Dr. and staff explained everything and were really patient with all my questions. I was pretty nervous and a little bit embarrassed but they were all really cool about it all. I like that Dr. Bunke explained all my options to me and I didn’t feel pressured to make a decision one way or the other. She just gave me the facts and information and then let me decide what I wanted to do with the information. Kinda of a refreshing experience actually. Everyone was really professional and down to earth. For being a Dr.’s visit it was surprisingly enjoyable. I highly recommend!

Simply amazing and great! I loved everything about my experience at La Jolla Vein Care. I was treated right, I felt as if my opinion was appreciated, and It was such a good time. Who would imagine someone looking forward to seeing the Dr?? But that’s how I am every time I go to La Jolla.

La Jolla Vein Care is one of the best vein centers in the Western U.S. Dr. Bunke and Dr. Fronek are experts in their field and possess superior training and credentials. Their staff is warm and friendly. I would highly recommend La Jolla Vein Care to my friends and family.

I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Bunke and the whole staff at La Jolla Vein Care. Dr. Bunke is knowledgeable and expert at what she does–so much so that I travel from out of state to see her. She’s professional but also warm and caring and really does treat you as if you’re her only patient. The entire office is the same way; everyone is professional but also kind, caring and incredibly helpful. There are vein specialists closer to me–including at Mayo Clinic–but I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
