A satisfied client for years
Staff are professional and friendly. Doctors and nurses always take the time to thoroughly explain the current state of my legs and any recommended treatment. Comfortable and well equipped facilities. Will also order support hose for you. Great location right above the subway at Bay and Bloor.

My legs are still hot thanks to them!
I can only say thanks & thanks again! Since my first visit 25 years ago! I still have great looking legs in my 40's with just a few touch ups over the years (from the compliments I still get, ha, ha). My Mom had terrible legs & even I got her fixed up! That's why I started going there because the veins started showing in my early 20's & obviously hereditary. Now my face is the problem so every summer I make a visit, since I'm not in Toronto anymore. And even though I hate needles they are always gentle at the clinic! Yes it's a busy place so be patient, don't book other important things that day, relax & make it a "me day", have lunch, shop, it's Yorkville, go with a girlfriend! They always charge by number of needles, not by the time. Now for the minimum 15 needles I have to actually look very close since mine are basically all gone! Great place & a real confidence saver at any age! We all love to wear shorts & dresses!

Have been coming for 25+ years - best vein clinic ever
Have had my veins done at your clinic for many years. Sometimes hard to get there but always get accommodated with double treatments. Highly recommended and I tell everyone that needs that type of work done.

Best Vein Clinic
I can't say enough how much I love this clinic. Other places charge by time, and barely accomplish anything for twice the price. Yorkville Vein Clinic is by far a higher standard. They are super experienced and it shows, I barely feel the injections, everyone is so nice and friendly, often we joke and chat so much it goes by so fast. The results are amazing! I was finally able to go out in shorts and dresses again! I have given their card to everyone, do yourself a favour and try this place out. They're not fancy they're effective! They've also been around for almost 30 years!

Plan to waste your whole day waiting...
Appointments don't matter here. Had an appointment scheduled for 11am. Still hadn't been seen by 12:30 p.m. at which point they told me there was no way I'd be able to make it home in time for my 1:30 p.m. meeting so I had to leave. A woman who came in at the exact same time as me for her 11a.m. appointment had been seen two people ago (albeit still almost an hour later than her scheduled time) and I still had two more in front of me. It made no sense and just showed complete disorganization. What a waste of cab fare. I'll be asking my doctor to refer me to a different clinic.

Awesome
I'm very happy with the result. Although it takes time to see it, you have to be patient and trust them. Staff are super friendly and nurses are so knowledge. Highly recommended.

Bad service and ripping off
I've done my treatment there four times. The girl on reception was always quite rude, they charge you by time and the nurse always has something to do so leave me for a few minutes but I was always paying for this. And last time I've mentioned that she was leaving me twice to open the door for the customer because girl from reception wasn't there and to make appointment and it's was like 5 min but she said no it's was only 2 min and just because I don't like scandals I paid but that's ridiculous! After all 3 month after last procedure I figured that one vein on my leg was red and swollen all the time and started to get worse and painful and because I never could get in touch with this clinic because they simply not answering their calls I ended up in ER where they told me that there is thrombosis in the vein that was treated and blood was caught there. So now I have to take antibiotics and anti inflammatory pills for two weeks!!! Not sure that nurse knows what she's doing but I definitely never going back there!!! Plus after all this procedures my legs started to look worse on inflamed leg half of my leg covered now with spider veins! It's looked better before I came there! Awful service, awful job, dangerous for your health! Never ever again!

Actually if you've ever been to the clinic you would know they charge by injection, not by time, you can get 15, 30 or 60.

Trombosis is what happens when medication goes into a vein, it's the process used by sclerotherapy to close the veins, they become irritated by the salt and sugar solution and close up, sometimes a red inflamed area can happen when closing a larger vein. Hot water compresses are recommended. All the information is in the "need to know" pamphlet they provide before treatment and give you to take home. ER doctors are not knowledgeable in sclerotherapy and want to be safe so they give you blood thinners to avoid a clot. Blood thinners for someone with varicose veins makes the situation worse. You should see a dr specialized in varicose veins to review your situation. I think after 30+ years of experience the clinic is a great one and recommended by many drs, not just happy clients of 30 years. I never have problems getting a call back if I don't get through right away. The "girl" at reception is a super sweet lady that has also been there almost 30 years.

Yorkville Vein Clinic
If you need a good place to have your veins treated, it's Yorkville Vein Clinic. The doctors are nice and the nurses are gentle. They are very knowledgeable and answers my questions regarding my veins very well. It is highly recommended.

The best secret in town
I have been a patient here for 15 years. I was unfortunate to have unsightly varicose veins since the age of 18. I had surgery and they came back. That's when I found them and it's been wonderful. The staff at YVC are like family now. I go for regular check ups and touch ups as needed. They treat the most stubborn veins and they do a great job. Thank you!!

A great clinic
I had been to a lot of vein clinic but I am proud to say that Yorkville Vein Clinic is a great one. Why? They fully examined my legs (veins) and assessed my problems. They explained the treatment and side effects well and gave me the chance to ask questions. Treatment wise, they made me feel comfortable and was so gentle in injecting but of course it still hurts a bit. Overall, my experience with the clinic was great.

Really Great Clinic
I love the Staff at Yorkville Vein Clinic. Dr. Alex Opris and his staff are an amazing team and in my opinion from what I've seen they work so well together.

I had Vericose viens mostly on the front of my thighs and some more big ones to the side of both legs, when I sat down, I was embarrased and barely wore anything that would show off my legs, I was even ashamed for my boyfriend of 12 years to look at my legs and I'm only 40 years old.

Dr. Opris and his staff fixed me up, they gave me back my confidence and I love my legs and thighs again, I honestly can't stop looking at them, I show them off all the time now.

I honestly don't how to thank them, they are so friendly, curtious and so so caring, they try to help you as much as possible to be comfortable when they're treating you in the treatment room, as a matter of fact I was laughing and having so much fun with them, sometimes I forgot what was going on.

I am soo happy I was pointed in the right direction with these guys and I will not stop going back, I've told my sister and my mom about them and they can't wait to give them a try too.
These are amazing people, I can't say enough about how amazing they are, and I will always be happy with them.

Thanks you guys, You're pretty Awesome....

Great Clinic
I have been going to Yorkville Vein Clinic for years and am very happy! I recently went online to give my friend Yorkville Vein Clinic's website info and found these reviews and was so surprised there were any negative ones! I just wanted to write that I am so pleased with the staff, I"ve always had a good experience, sometimes it's busy, but usually I am in and out quite fast and the results are fantastic. There are two male doctors now, Dr. Opris is my favourite his injections are amazing, I can barely feel anything at all, honestly he's an expert! Thank you so much! Big hugs to all!

Best Vein Clinic
I can't say enough about how grateful I am to the staff at Yorkville Vein Clinic. The clinic is very down-to-Earth, not fancy, but rather very medically oriented. I am just so excited to have nice legs! The staff is warm and kind, they seem to genuinely care about their patients, many of whom seem to have been going for many, many years. I can see why! They made my experience easy and I am so grateful, my legs look great! They were covered in ugly dark red spider veins, I even had some bulging veins, and everything is gone! I have lovely legs! Wow! I will be recommending the clinic to all! Thanks again!

So Pleased with Results!
Sure, it's not the most glamorous looking office and the male doctor can sometimes seem a bit brazen, but bottom line--they know what they're doing (and the price is very reasonable too). I am VERY happy with my results, my legs look AMAZING. I actually (stupidly) tried another clinic in the same area a few months back (I was seduced by it's shoo-shoo style office and good customer service), but my God, they didn't do ANYTHING for my legs--in fact, they just took my money and made the very tiny ones I had even worse! Let's just say, I ran back to Yorkville Vein Clinic and will not bother looking back....

Best Vein Clinic
I have been going to Yorkville Vein Clinic for many years and could not be happier with their service. I had previously tried a few other clinics or drs to treat my varicose and spider veins, but no one is as good and fast as the staff at Yorkville Vein! They are thorough and make the experience as pleasant as it is possible. In the Spring and Fall they are busier than other times and there is the occasional delay, as in every Dr or dentist office I have gone to (at my dermatologist I wait 3 to 5 times more in fact, each visit!) Overall I am usually in and out so fast and happy, happy, happy! They are also a lovely group of people that really care about their patients. I have recommended many friends and family members throughout the years and will continue to do so.

I was really surprised to find any negative comments on the internet, this must be a person who was having a bad day! Who know what happened, but that does not sound like the same clinic I go to. I don't normally write reviews on the internet, but really felt compelled this time!

Thank you Yorkville Vein Clinic!!!

It's a good thing I don't need to return!
My consultation appointment was delayed by 35 minutes and then I was 'forgotten' in the treatment room for 20 minutes before the doctor or nurse came in...
My second appointment was booked after my ultrasound results came in and I arrived on time only to wait another 30 minutes, which at that time I had to leave because I booked it during my lunch hour. The receptionist could only tell me that they were very busy as this is the busy season (Spring. So if it's so busy then why overbook your appointments? Needless to say I was not the only one that day to walk out...a man was 'forgotten' in the treatment room this day too and he had to return to work!
My last and final appointment was quick and to the point but I felt like everyone was trying to make up for bad service...the best though is that the receptionists didn't have a clue - telling a new patient at the desk to just have a seat and the doctor would call her...should have been me but I had already sat down??? Upon exiting, the doctor gave me a copy of my results for referal and again the receptionist not knowing what was happening told me to call in and we could book my appointment, which both the doctor and I turned to her and said that isn't necessary because I am a referal...it's a good thing i don't have to return!!

Not so happy.
This is probably the worst service I have ever experienced at a doctor's office. The women at the front desk have misplaced my file; they have marked down my appointments on the wrong days; they never say they are sorry. I tried getting them to write a letter for my insurance and they keep messing it up. Not to mention phone calls not returned...

I have been going to the Yorkville vein clinic for a few months now, i had minor veins on my legs that were too noticible luckly i went in to take care of the issue before it got worse with age. i am going for i believe my last session on Saturday, the staff is very friendly, professional and patient. I enjoy my visits there, felt confortable and the results were amazing, i barely have any noticible veins left, after my session on saturday i should be all clear, i went three times. Prices are very reasonable too.

Thanks to all the staff at Yorville Vein clinc.!
