Below are some of what patients are saying about their experiences with Athens Veins and Thoracic Specialists. We have sorted the testimonials by the treatments and procedures the patient received.


“I want to share with you the joy of miraDry. Hot weather has always brought thoughts of dread to my mind because high temperatures mean a greater amount of perspiration. I enjoy nice clothes but always felt that my tastes had to be modified because of hot weather. I asked about miraDri when I saw the brochure in Dr. Malone’s office. The procedure is performed in the office and has given me a new outlook. I still dislike heavy humidity but my summer clothes are not being ruined by perspiration marks after miraDri. If I am at work or go to the gym, my clothes look and smell fresh even at the end of the day. The hot day perspiration stains don’t exist anymore and I can wear the fun, the fashionable, the flirty and the professional clothes that fit the many areas of my life. It is wonderful to invest in oneself.”
-Barbara S.

“ I have always had an allergy to aluminum and would break out when using antiperspirant. miraDry has been wonderful for me because I do not have to worry about sweating or unsightly rashes.” -Mary C.

“ I would perspire moderately during the day and used clinical strength deodorant.  Since having miraDry, I no longer use antiperspirant at all and have seen a significant change in hair growth.  Shaving less is just an added bonus for me.” – Marie G.

“ I am so happy with my smooth dry underarms! Thank you Athens Vein & Thoracic and miraSmooth for this easy fix to a lifelong problem!” -Ann M.


“Since having my venous ablation, my legs feel so much lighter at the end of the day.  I do not wake up at night with pain or have achy legs at the end of a long day.  I am so thankful for this procedure and recommend it and Dr. Chris Malone to everyone that suffers with these symptoms. -Ann A.

“Been a patient of Dr. Malone’s for several years. Great Doctor and all his Staff is wonderful. -Mary H.

“I had aching legs for years. I would wake up 2 to 4 times every night and have to elevate my legs in the air. When Dr. Malone’s office checked my legs by ultrasound and found I had reflux (venous insufficiency) and I was a candidate for the closure surgery, I was very skeptical about rather it would really help or not. I had no bulging veins and nothing unsightly with my legs. Well, I had the surgery (which is no longer the old fashion “stripping”) and now I sleep through the entire night without waking up. Yes, I am an advocate for the procedure now. My insurance paid for the procedure, done in the doctor’s office, and I went right back to work. No days out of work. Thank you, Dr. Malone!”– Susan B.
