Thanks to Dr. Reynolds and their pleasant staff, I feel better, I look better, and I couldn’t be more pleased for them to be a part of my journey to health.” – D.C.

“I’d had this varicose vein since I was 18 years old, always very self-conscious about it. Finally got it corrected because it began to be painful. Dr. Reynolds and his staff are awesome. They immediately put me at ease, were always extremely professional. Dr. Reynolds has a very calm demeanor which is good for someone like myself, who is a big chicken when it comes to any kind of procedure. The procedure was virtually painless with no pain since. I highly recommend Dr. Reynolds. If I had know how easy it would be, I might have gotten this done much sooner.” – F.H.

“I am completely satisfied with the results of my phlebectomy. Swelling in my calf has stopped, my leg does not feel heavy and tired now, and any pain has disappeared. Dr. Reynolds is a consummate professional who took the time to discuss the procedure and monitor the outcome. I am so impressed with the quality of his staff and the level of professionalism and genuine concern that they show. I wish all physicians and their staff would emulate the great level of service and professionalism I found here.” – J.Q.


When I first arrived at The Vein Clinic, it felt like a warm welcome. Dr. Reynolds and his staff were so genuinely sweet and nice. They made me feel very comfortable. I had very little pain, very little discomfort, very little down time, very quick recovery. And for an active mom, that was something that I was looking for.

Well, after my three pregnancies, I was feeling lots of discomfort, pain and swelling. My legs were tender to touch. It was very unsightly. I was getting a little frustrated. I was very uncomfortable wearing shorts. I felt like everybody was staring at my legs. My veins were bulging. They hurt. I just wasn’t able to wear a bathing suit. With three children, that’s kind of difficult. So, I felt like I needed some immediate attention.

I did not know what kind of procedures were available to me until I actually spoke with my doctor and he highly recommended Dr. Reynolds for those. At that point, that was when I was able to speak with him. He went through all the details of what options were for me. What was best for me.

I was pleasantly surprised that this procedure was done in a nice, warm environment.

After my procedure was complete, I felt like my lifestyle went back to the way it used to be. As an active mom of three, that was very important to me to be able to go back and play with my children, wear shorts, wear a bathing suit, get out there and get down and dirty with them. And I felt like I couldn’t do that before. So, now I felt young again.

“(I was) having trouble with my left knee feeling like it was going to give way as I walked up and down stairs. I went to The Vein Clinic where they found I had varicose veins that needed removal. Dr. Neal Reynolds and his staff took real good care of me doing a minimally invasive treatment with little to no pain. I can now go up and down stairs with no problem. Thank to Dr. Reynolds and all of his staff who made this happen.”
– M.W., Sumter

“Before I had my vein procedures, my days were full of leg pain and exhaustion. Now I can teach my music classes all day without leg pain and with energy! At one time I thought I would have to stop doing what I love to do, but now I plan to dance and sing with my students for many years to come. I am thankful to Dr. Reynolds and his staff for their care and professionalism.” – L.A.R.


I mean, it’s so much better. It was so easy. It was so painless. I’m kicking myself with my new leg that I didn’t do this (laughs) years ago, because it — the difference is just incredible. I can’t really put it into words. But it is fantastic. This has definitely improved the quality of my life.

You know, a lot of people think that varicose veins, vein issues in the legs, that’s a female issue. It’s a cosmetic issue. But I would say, as someone who has experienced it firsthand, a word of warning out there to the gentlemen in your audience, if you see any sort of staining/shadowing on your leg, especially around your ankles, you feel a pain, you feel that burning sensation. I mean, heaven help you there, because that’s usually the first sign of the ulceration. But this is not a pleasant thing. It is not a pleasant thing at all. And it impacts your life all the way across — everything you do. The only — I mean, even trying to sleep at night. It just — there’s no escape from it. It’s — it’s terrible. I wouldn’t wish this on anybody. But if you — you see something like this, you feel these sort of things, you really need to consult with your doctor and let him know what’s going on, because this is serious business.

A lot of people don’t realize how much the options have changed in this situation. When I was first diagnosed with this, my doctor steered me toward compression stockings, because they said the option was what they called “vein stripping,” and that’s weeks in a hospital and it’s just — it’s very invasive, and for somebody who’s never really been in a hospital or had operations or anything, too scary for me. Not — not — you know, the whole idea of general anesthetic, you know, no. Is there — is there some way around that? And they said, “Yeah, sure. There’s socks. The compression stockings.” But the procedure’s apparently advanced in — over those 16 years, because this last time I was visiting a doctor, they said, “You need to go see Dr. Reynolds at the Vein Clinic, because he removes these large veins.” And I said, “Is vein stripping.” And he said, “No, no, no. It’s all advanced now, but he’ll explain everything to you when you go.” I set up an appointment. Met with Dr. Reynolds. He examined me. He said I was pretty much a textbook case for the vein treatments that he does. And he explained the procedure to me, the relief that I would enjoy after he finished.

But he was very clear on the process, the procedure, what I would do, how long it would take. And I said, “Well, this all sounds great. And I guess the big question is how do I pay for it?” And he said the good news was that much of it was covered by insurance.

After the initial consultation, came back to the Vein Clinic, met with Dr. Reynolds. He went over the procedure. Did the procedure. In by 9:00, out by 12:00. Now I’m back shagging again.

One of the best parts about this is how much my life has changed since I had the procedure done at the Vein Clinic. Everyday things people take for com — for granted: walking, just everyday things. I mean, it’s so much better. It was so easy. It was so painless. I’m kicking myself with my new leg that I didn’t do this (laughs) years ago, because it — the difference is just incredible. I can’t really put it into words. But it is fantastic. This has definitely improved the quality of my life. Because for the first time in I don’t know how many years I’m able to swim, got to the beach without wearing blue jeans. I actually wear a swimsuit at the beach and not have people gawk at my leg. I can, you know, run, play ball, walk the dogs, you know, all those things that people take for granted in their life that I always had to be very careful in any endeavor that involved my leg, because if I had any injury to that leg, it was just going to be bad news all the way down the line. So, the improvement in the quality of life is just — it’s just amazing. It’s nice to be back.

Thanks to the Vein Clinic, I went from being uncomfortable standing for long periods of time or sitting at a desk for long periods of time back out to shag dancing at night. So, life is great once you’ve had this procedure done.

After standing on my feet all day, at the end of the day, I still have a lot of energy. Because of the procedure I’ve had at The Vein Clinic, it has changed my life — my whole lifestyle.

I want to thank Dr. Reynolds and his staff for giving me my skinny ankles back again.

Transcription

I had swollen ankles and heavy feet. And I went to my primary care physician, which gave me a brochure for The Vein Clinic. And I followed my mind and just went to The Vein Clinic and had Dr. Reynolds to check me out. And that’s how it all started from there.

At work, I was fatigued from my ankles being swollen and heavy and walking. So — and that’s how I was feeling pracally (sic) all day. It started early morning and never ended. As a result of the swelling, I stopped wearing short dresses, and I start wearing long dresses and mostly pants.

I used to exercise a lot. I lost a lot of weight before I started noticing the swelling. But then, once my ankles were swollen, it was hard to lift my feet. So, I stopped the exercising.

The interaction with Dr. Reynolds was very nice. He first tested out my veins to make sure that there was nothing — to find out what was going on with me and once he the procedure, he found out that I had leaking veins. So, that’s when we set up to come back for the second time to make sure he was — what he found the first time was correct.

The procedure was, at first, I was kind of nervous. But they gave me something to relax me. And then, once I went into the operating room, everything was really nice. They put music on for me to listen to to relax me, and I’m not sure how long the procedure last, but it was a good procedure. I had it done the day before our — Christmas Eve, and I was able to have my family over the next day for Christmas Eve. Had a slight limp, but I was able to stand up all day with my family.

After standing on my feet all day, at the end of the day, I still have a lot of energy. Because of the procedure I’ve had at The Vein Clinic, it has changed my life — my whole lifestyle.

I want to thank Dr. Reynolds and his staff for giving me my skinny ankles back again.

I would highly recommend Dr. Reynolds and the staff at The Vein Clinic, who are wonderful and very courteous.” – M.L.

“Dr. Reynolds and his staff are amazing. They are very friendly, confident and they made me feel at ease about my procedure.

I recommend their office highly. Thank you!” – S.S.

I came to see Dr. Reynolds because of the pain in my leg due to varicose veins. Dr. Reynolds suggested I have the problem corrected through a simple same-day procedure. I had the procedure done and I am truly pleased. Not only has the appearance of my leg improved, but the most important part is that my pain is totally gone. I am now walking with no pain and I have started walking 2 to 3 miles daily. I would recommend Dr. Reynolds to anyone with the same problem I had.” – P.H.
