I had my varicose veins done and I regret it. Not only did it cost me $4,000 out of pocket but I felt mutilated afterwards and that I was a cow being processed.
The doctor was very cold and hardly welcoming even on the evaluation.
I did one leg one day and the other the next. I’m an obese woman, admittedly, but I was really annoyed they did not have suitable compression stockings for a plus sized patient.
They crammed me into a pair and they were painful and constantly rolling down causing more pain on my wounds.
I understand what compression stockings do and what they are for, but they should also fit the patient correctly otherwise they’re not helpful.
I couldn’t go to the bathroom with them on and it was a painful chore to put them back on after the bathroom and showers.
I had pain even with a local anesthetic during the surgery but they did nothing for it.
On one of the areas they treated I still have a varicose vein and many many spider veins that weren’t there before.
I contacted them and they offered to treat the spider veins and I went for two sessions (which it does hurt to get done, but it’s tolerable) and while it looked like they disappeared after the treatment, within days they were back.
I will mention it was the receptionist that did the spider veins treatment and when I questioned why the doctor wouldn’t she got an attitude with me and snootily asked if I wanted him.
I don’t know if she was an RN or not, I didn’t think to ask.
Now that I think about it I probably should have and maybe that’s why the two treatments showed zero results.
I was generous with my two stars only because they did a payment plan with me and because they wrote a note for me to have extended time off my labor intensive job as I was still having pain when walking.
