Well the first impression was no wait time. And the staff was tremendous, very helpful. You know, they led me where I needed to go. They answered all my questions. It was just an awesome experience coming here versus some of the other places I’ve had to go to where there’s a wait time.Well the first impression was no wait time.

The reason I came was, as a typical male, I let my condition go. I had a history of varicose veins in the family. I’ve had a couple of sisters that have had some treatment done. I stand at my job all day long. I had to wear compression stockings because I realized I was starting to get some hyperpigmentation, some discoloring in the ankles. My legs started to really hurt me. I started to feel like they were getting real heavy. I was getting cramping at night, even cramping during the day when I’d be out running. I’d have some severe cramping in the calves, so I knew that if I wanted to stay active I needed to get this taken care of.
I knew that it was an issue and I needed to take care of it, having a family history of varicose veins, having a couple sisters that had the procedures done. Mine were visible, so I knew I had to take care of my legs.
The recovery was quick. I mean you’re up and moving around the same day, so, I mean, you can’t ask for anything better than that. So when I run, I used to use athletic compression stockings just below the knee. Now, I don’t even use those anymore. I don’t have to. I don’t experience the calf pain, the cramping.
One of the things on my bucket list is to run a marathon before I get too old. I’ve completed three half marathons, so that’s on my bucket list and I would like to complete that.
I learned not to wait when you have problems with your legs. Put your pride behind you, come in, get the free consultation done, get your legs fixed, and it will be a whole new world for you.
It’s like I’ve got a new set of legs. At my age, that means a lot. I can continue to golf, hunting activities, run, and not have those issues anymore.
On the golf course, when my brother-in-law, whose a physician, took a look and said ‘wow, I’m going to have to get my legs done’ (because he has a similar situation), too. Yeah, my wife said she does notice the fact that my legs look a lot smoother, better color, and I don’t complain about my legs anymore.
