Dr. Hondo is a Diplomate of the American Board of Phlebology and Gynecologic surgeon. She attended UMass, Amherst where she graduated Magna Cum Laude, receiving a BS degree in MicroBiology. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ and then completed her residency training at Tufts University School of Medicine in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. Hondo practiced OB/GYN at Newton Wellesley Hospital for many years. During that time she cared for many patients with venous disease, and she became interested in the field of Phlebology. Fellow OB/GYN and longtime friend and colleague from residency Dr. Foley expressed a similar interest in the field of Phlebology, and the pair decided to pursue this new career path together. Following extensive training in phlebology and aesthetics, Dr. Hondo and Dr. Foley co-founded The Vein & Aesthetic Center of Boston in 2002. They were among the first physicians in New England to perform the EVLT procedure after it was FDA approved in 2002. Since that time they have performed thousands of procedures. Dr. Hondo is also credentialed as a RVT (Registered Vascular Technologist) and RPVI (Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation).
In addition, Dr. Hondo has extensive experience in the administration of noninvasive aesthetic treatments including Botox and dermal fillers (Juverderm, Restylane, Radiesse). Along with Dr. Foley she received her initial training for Botox and fillers in 2001 and 2002 with Drs. Alastair and Jean Carruthers.
Outside of work Dr. Hondo can be found on the sidelines watching her 3 daughters playing soccer, basketball, lacrosse, and water polo. Her two eldest daughters are in college and she lives in Walpole, Massachusetts with her husband and her youngest daughter. She enjoys running, spinning classes, reading, and walking her dog.
