Professional service, professional staff, and a overall great experience. Dr. Mann is very helpful and knowledgeable of vein issues and provides exceptional advice. He took his time answering all of my questions, without me feeling rushed, and gave me a few recommendations as to which procedure would be best for me. He did not try to sell me anything during my consultation, which I appreciated so much! I can not recommend this place enough. Everyone at The Secret is awesome! As a male I was very skeptical to coming to a place like this, but they put my skeptics aside and assured their professionalism. Dr. Mann was extremely helpful. I would without a doubt recommend a friend or family member to The Secret!

I had a very pleasant experience at The Secret Vein Clinic. The staff is very friendly, professional and well-trained. The office is located in the heart of La Jolla. Very clean and comfortable. After going thru a Doppler ultrasound test, I was informed that I was not a good candidate for the Clinic's service and the prepaid payment was promptly refunded. I appreciated their honesty for NOT trying to provide a service where little/no improvement could be expected for the price paid. It is refreshing to work with these outstanding medical professionals at the Secret Vein Clinic, and I highly recommend any and all to get treated here!

Dr. Mann was so friendly & professional during my visit. The front desk clerk-who also acted as his assistant, Emily, was extremely polite and helpful. The office is just lovely. I had a treatment done on my face for spider veins. I was afraid it would really hurt but they blew ice cold air on my skin while performing the laser treatment and it kept the discomfort to a minimum. This was a great first experience for me! They did not push me to buy a bunch of products except for sunscreen, which I needed. And they weren't pushy about that, really. I dreaded going in but walked out really happy that I did it! I highly recommend this place! Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable & welcoming.

I am in my mid 20's and I have battled with varicose veins my entire life. From this I have physically felt heaviness and emotionally have struggled with wearing shorts or outfits where my legs were exposed. I was referred to this clinic from my ER doctor after they confirmed my issue was not going to resolve itself. Feeling as if I was out of options.. I decided to try The Secret Vein Clinic. From the second I walked in I was greeted with top notch customer service. The place is beyond clean and everyone is extremely knowledgeable and educated in what they are doing. You can tell Dr. Mann is not only a specialist at this but this is also his passion. With confidence, I began undergoing my treatments with Dr. Mann where my varicose veins were SIGNIFICANTLY reduced. This had been something I have wanted my entire life! I am not only feeling more confident in my shorts but I feel like my entire life got a lift! THANK YOU SECRET VEIN CLINIC AND THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. MANN!

Dr Mann and the staff were extremely helpful during my visit. They were able to treat my varicose veins, and my spider veins after I have visited several other doctors who could not fix the problem. I inherited my families varicose veins and doing the treatments with Dr. Mann were easy and painless. Summer is coming and I wanted to get this issue resolved once and for all. I have had several appointments with Dr. Mann who explained the process at full and educated me on the process and expectation of what to expect so there were no surprises-- The doctor is straight forward and actually listens to your concerns. I'm kind of a chicken when it comes to seeing the doctor or dentist but my legs were getting really bad and I knew I had to do something about it. I am so excited to wear shorts and swimsuits this summer and not be embarrassed any more. Dr. Mann is great at post-procedure as well! Any questions I had were answered with confidence and care. His office is truly reputable and I recommend to anyone with the same issues as my own.

My spider veins were so embarrassing that I feared wearing shorts or a dress for too long. Dr. Mann and staff addressed my concerns in a professional and caring manner. I was educated on what was going on with my veins, and the proper treatments I needed to get the beautiful legs I want. Dr. Mann not only treated my spider veins, but also the underlying cause, for long-lasting results. Dr. Mann's assistant and staff are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, caring and friendly! I am so pleased with the results I have received! I can finally show off my legs again! I highly recommend Dr. Mann to anyone who wants to get rid of those ugly veins and be able to wear shorts or dresses again! Thank you to everyone at The Secret!

I love coming to The Secret! The staff is extremely kind and helpful every time I step foot in the Clinic. From Medical Consultations, Facials, to vein care, they always makes me feel like a VIP when I walk in. I go to Emily or Elena for their Medical Grade facials about once every two weeks and I know I can trust that my skin will be glowing and flawless when I leave. My skin has transformed since I have been coming to The Secret. The Estheticians do such a thorough job, I look forward to the facial all week because I am certain it will be a relaxing experience. I just love how relaxing it is. I believe everyone deserves a treat like this once in awhile and I wouldn't go to anyone else for my skincare treatments. 5 stars for the best customer care in La Jolla!!

I'm nearly 65. I'm active, fit and dedicated to staying as healthy as possible for as long as possible. But one day I got off my bike and discovered that a vein had blown up in my leg. Dr. Mann diagnosed the problem as CVI. He and his lovely staff treated me with knowledge, care and expertise. Luckily, I won't have to go back.

Went to the Secret Vein Clinic because I had severe varicose vein symptoms for years. I used to wake up with terrible pains and cramps in my legs. Dr Mann examined me and I immediately felt comfortable during my consultation with him. He listened to my concerns which very few doctors really do. The staff was very helpful with the insurance paperwork and in getting authorization for my ablation procedure. Dr Mann was truly caring and very professional and I could tell he was very adept at what he was doing. He took care of those larger ugly bulging veins. Now I have legs that I dont have to be embarrassed about.
I cannot thank Dr Mann enough for his expertise and genuine care during my treatment. Highly recommend this clinic to anyone with vein disease.

Saw Dr Mann in consultation for my varicose veins.  He took his time listening to me, reassured me and I felt safe and comfortable with him. I ended up getting the radiofrequency ablation procedure for my terrible veins. Now I must say I have legs that are symptom free  Amazing!  What a fantastic job he did. The staff there is wonderful. Made everything so easy  with the paperwork. They genuinely do care for patients at this clinic. Cannot say that for the other vein clinics I initially had consultations with.
Definitely he is the vein doctor to go to.

Featured Service: Varicose Vein Treatment

featured service varicose vein surgeryDr. Mann specializes in the Radiofrequency Closure Procedure to treat varicose veins. Over his twenty plus years practicing medicine, Dr. Mann has helped hundreds of patients cure and recover from the painful, torturous and unsightly varicose veins that affect more than 40 million Americans. Typical symptoms arising from this condition include pain, fatigue & heaviness, bulging ropey veins, swelling, itching or burning, and throbbing or cramping at night. Dr. Mann has successfully performed the Radiofrequency Closure Procedure on each of his varicose vein candidate patients, curing them of all these side effects. Every single one of Dr. Mann’s patients have recovered successfully, and he has never had any complications pre-or post-procedure.

The Radiofrequency Closure Procedure itself is the most technologically advanced endovenous vein treatment that physicians can use now at days to treat varicose veins. Its predecessor, vein stripping, is now completely antiqued, was very painful and left patients with unsightly scars. The Radiofrequency Closure Procedure is an outpatient procedure that is extremely safe, minimally invasive (scar less) and virtually pain-free. It utilizes high-tech ultrasound energy to guide a thin catheter into the vein through a very small opening. Then, radiofrequency energy delivers heat to the vein wall. As this thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and is sealed closed. Patients will see a visible difference the same day of the procedure, as they will no longer have large, bulging veins protruding from their legs. They also do not have to worry about their veins disappearing, because blood will re-route itself to other, healthy veins deeper in the leg, as it should.

Varicose veins are not simply an unsightly and cosmetic issue that can be left untreated. There are serious underlying medical problems in your legs and the resulting conditions can become life-threatening. It is important to stay vigilant with your health, and take care of your legs. This includes contacting a varicose vein specialist as quickly as possible if you have any of the previously mentioned symptoms. Your vascular surgeon will examine your condition and help you choose the best treatment for your varicose condition.  Although varicose veins are quite common, if untreated, the condition can progress to something quite serious. Additionally, because varicose veins are a medical condition that can have very harmful effects, most health plans will cover the procedure.

The advanced simplicity and effectiveness of the Radiofrequency Closure Procedure has made it the most widely used and accepted treatment with the highest success rate used by vascular surgeons such as Dr. Mann. Together, this advanced procedure and Dr. Mann’s vein surgical expertise of 20 plus year provides every patient at our clinic the absolute best, patient-centered vein care.
