Michael's story: Varicose Vein Treatment Michael's story: Varicose Vein Treatment

Male Patient, 67

“My leg was deformed with large surface veins that grew swollen by the end of the day, and very achy in my calf.  As a physician, I knew to elevate my legs when possible – and knew that I wanted to avoid the traditional vein stripping procedure.  But the symptoms were interfering with my work and life.

My internist recommended that I consult with Dr. Brooks to see what could be done. Dr. Brooks provided me with a careful, detailed explanation of the condition and what he could to alleviate my symptoms. I noticed that he was very thorough in his evaluation of my leg, as well as his diagnosis and documentation. His manner reassured me that I was in good hands.

Today I am symptom free and back to activities like taking long walks. I also feel more emotionally secure knowing that my leg looks “normal” and matches my other leg.”
