Raynaud’s disease is when the small arteries that circulate blood in the extremities, such as the hands and feet, become narrow due to vapospasms. Vapospasms are contractions that can occur due to stress or cold temperatures. The result is the affected areas feeling numb and cold as a result of the restricted blood circulation. It most commonly affects women and those living in cold climates. Raynaud’s disease usually does not involve treatment, aside from exercising to maintain good circulation and keeping warm with thick gloves and socks in cold weather. There are medications available to treat the disease if symptoms worsen.
Very friendly doctor and office staff, they go out of their way to help schedule an appointment with you.
My family loves Dr Stevens we have been his patients for many years. He treats us like family. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Very nice and polite!!! They make sure that you’re treated the right way.

I especially appreciate the friendly, respectful reception by the staff and the on-time care and attention to small (and big) problems provided by Dr. Stevens.
I had wonderful care by Dr. Stevens. He took the time to listen to what I said & validated my concerns. Never kept me waiting and has flexible office hours. I am extremely pleased with my treatment.
Still want more feedback on numbness, but understand waiting. Ingrown nail procedure was the 5th I’ve had, and the first that was 100% pain free. Doctor was thorough, answered all my questions politely, and gave me some confidence this would all go away on its own. Glad I chose this place.
Very clean and Friendly office. Great doctors!
