"Don't underestimate the vascular system! I had a swollen and hurting ankle due to an injury that occurred two years previously. When I visited Dr. Fort I thought he could help me relieve the pain and fatigue in my legs. By preforming a painless procedure on my left leg with virtually no down time I am pain free the swelling immediately disappeared in my ankle and I am wearing my favorite shoes again!!! Ladies and gentlemen don't wait to feel better! Visit Dr. Fort for a consultation in Saratoga Springs! Also your health insurance may cover your procedure! Mine did and I am grateful. Thanks again!"

"Three years ago Dr. Fort treated me for very painful and unsightly varicose and spider veins by a friend’s recommendation. The doctor was very assuring and professional. The procedure was painless, non invasive and I went back to work the next day. Till this day I’m so happy with my decision and am no longer suffering from leg cramps… not to mention feeling great about wearing shorts! Thank you Capital Region Vein and Laser Centre!"
