A Video Testimonial for The Vein Clinic: Shannon Hopkins

To celebrate Mother’s Day, we’d like to share a testimonial from Shannon, an active mother of three children. However, the pain, swelling and embarrassment from varicose veins that were caused by her pregnancies made Shannon miss what she enjoyed most about being around her kids, which was to “get out there and get down and dirty with them.”

Read the complete transcription of her testimonial
“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.

“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. 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 — I felt young again.”
