Clearly very experienced


Tired of not being able to walk any distance and of my leg aching and swelling all the time I decided to do something about my varicose veins. After doing some research I decided on Mr Braithwaite at Woodthorpe Hospital in Nottingham as it was local to me and information on the website was clear, concise and informative. During the initial appointment Mr Braithwaite explained everything clearly and there was no pressure to sign up to any particular treatment. I was nervous about having the treatment and worried about pain as I opted to have the treatment under a local anesthetic. There was some discomfort but nothing unbearable and it was over much quicker than I expected. Mr Braithwaite was professional and clearly very experienced in what he does. He explained everything in full including after care. The nurse was very reassuring and calm and obviously skilled at making patients feel at ease. Today I have taken the bandaging off and everything looks okay; no infection or bruising. Too soon to know what the long term results will be but if my experience so far is anything to go by I am confident it will be excellent. – AMS
