Jean F - Vein Clinic PA Review

I can walk without pain!
Jean F.

jean 250Worst Symptoms: I am an administrative assistant. My legs were tired, and hurt all the time. I had large bulging veins, pain and swelling in my legs and ankles, and an ulcer on the side of my ankle. I love to walk, and at times, my legs and ankles hurt so much. I had sclerotherapy from another clinic, but my symptoms came back.

Treatment Experience: The best! They all work as a team which is awesome.

Comments on Clinic Staff:

  • Doctors: Sam really cares! He is professional, knowledgeable, and answered every concern I had. His love for his job is truly amazing.
  • Phlebology Techs: Always a smile, made me feel relaxed. Very compassionate & fun girls. I could tell they enjoyed helping people feel better.
  • Front Office Personnel: Friendly and always able to schedule my appointment when it worked for me. Great customer service!
  • Billing Staff: Processed all claims with my insurance company - I didn't have to worry about that.

Results: I could walk out of the office after a treatment, and continue my everyday activities. About 10 days after my first laser treatment, the ulcer on my ankle was healed! I could hardly believe it. The swelling in my ankles was significantly reduced, and my shoes fit again. My legs feel so much better with more energy!

How Vein Clinic PA is different: Vein Clinic PA really cares about their patients. They want them to feel better, and will go the extra mile to make it happen. Thank you, Dr. Gupta & Staff for making a difference in my life. I appreciate all you have done. THANK YOU!!

I made an excellent choice going with Vein Clinic PA.

Dr. Sam Gupta is one great doctor who employs an outstanding staff, without exception. I chose this provider after considerable research including consultation with my primary provider including a consultation with a general surgeon, about a surgical procedure. After careful consideration and the recommendation of friends that had gone to Dr. Gupta, I made an excellent choice of going with Vein Clinic PA. I am a retired Police Chief who spent my lifetime in law enforcement with many days walking a beat starting out over 50 years ago. I was told, even then, that I had vein problems and should wear compression hose, which I rarely did, but never considered doing any thing about it until 2014 when I had a vein rupture that put me in the emergency room while out of State. The ER Dr. told me to get the veins fixed when I returned home, which took me to Dr. Gupta. I could not ride in a vehicle much over an hour without my legs cramping and going numb to the point where I could hardly walk for a short time after leaving a vehicle. I was having trouble walking up and down stairs without my legs feeling lame and stiff. I had frequent leg cramps while sleeping or just sitting in a chair. I was also being treated for what was diagnosed as psoriasis in my left ankle. Dr. Gupta said he would take care of that, which turned out to be a vein issue and not psoriasis. He was right. My legs are back in the condition of several years ago without the discomfort I was experiencing. The procedure was about as simple as a medical procedure can get. No surgery. Little discomfort. I went back to a normal routine after each procedure. In addition, no more ugly veins on my legs. I should have done this years ago and all was paid for by insurance, except the compression hose which had to be worn for twenty four hours after a procedure.

By my signature, I attest I have not received any payment for providing my comments.
