Spider Vein Treatment & Varicose Vein Removal Patient, Gail, Reviews Dr. Kerr and The Vein & Vascular Institute
“I noticed after having three children – my daughters are 32, 30 and 28 – that my varicose veins behind my leg were getting enormously large, and after years, getting even larger. And at night I was having a lot of trouble sleeping. I felt my legs were tired and I felt like they were constricted.
I just felt that I had some issues that I had to take care of, seeing that my mother had had them for years and never handled it quite in the right way. She should have see a physician, and she didn’t. And so I went, and I found out that it was hereditary. Being that it’s hereditary, I didn’t want to end up with large veins like my mother.
So, I was recommended by my physician to go to Tom Kerr, who is highly recommended and a vascular doctor. I went to see him. He was incredibly calm and understanding of my issues, being that I wanted to wear short skirts and shorts and not having the issues of the night pain and the tiredness during the day. He was confident that he could take care of the situation, and that once I had the procedure, I would be free of all those issues. And I had them. It was incredible.
I walked in in the morning, and with a few minor procedures of taking medication, I had the laser surgery for the huge veins in the back of my leg, which you will see are amazingly gone. And then, Holly, Dr. Kerr’s nurse, did some beautiful (spider vein treatment) work on my spider veins , which were the little tiny ones that we all hate, as women.”
“Afterwards, I went home, I had my legs up. I went to sleep that night. I wore my hose for 3 weeks. There was no pain. I didn’t go swimming, because you couldn’t. But after the 3 weeks, I was swimming again, I was walking. I was feeling free to wear shorts and skirts with confidence.
The wonderful thing about the treatment of having my veins removed was that it was covered by insurance. I wasn’t sure about that, but Dr. Kerr had done the ultrasound. And once they had submitted it, it was no problem. I had the insurance call back within like two, three weeks and they OK’d the surgery. So that was very pleasing. I didn’t have to wait 6 months to find out, I couldn’t or I could do something. So that was great.
I am proudly happy to wear a dress, a skirt, and shorts with confidence. I’m very pleased with the whole office. They have been overwhelmingly kind, and very professional in every manner.
I would definitely recommend The Vein and Vascular Institute. From the moment I walked in, the receptionist at the front desk was very heart-warmingly and sincerely welcoming me. As well as all the doctors and the nurses in the facility. Holly was fabulous, Dr. Kerr, Dean. They were all amazing. I would definitely recommend doing this treatment. It was, I would say, the best thing I could have done for myself, feeling confident, at 59, I feel younger than ever.”
