Question: Why did I leave so long? Years
Answer: I was simply frightened.
So my veins were getting worse, my legs ached, and they were unsightly.
I had treatment many years previously and was not looking forward to more of the same surgery.
So I did some homework. The decisions to be made were (1) What sort of treatment was on offer. I was pleased to see there were some choices. (2) Where to go for the treatment. (3) Who did I want to look after me.
After making those decisions the rest was straight forward.
I made my appointment with Simon Hobbs and asked about the different treatments I had read about. Mr. Hobbs was very informative. I felt extremely comfortable with Mr. Hobbs he explained in detail what my problem was whilst scanning my legs, what the benefits would be, he gave me literature on my treatment to take home to read and gave me a very realistic idea of the time the procedure would take. I made my appointment and felt confident I had chosen the right person for my treatment.
On the morning of my procedure Mr. Hobbs took photos of my legs he was friendly and attentive which put me at ease. My procedure took approximately 40 mins. during which I was able to engage fully with Mr. Hobbs and his staff who were all very friendly.
Mr. Hobbs explained what I should do in the following days and when he would see me again. I was delighted to be walking out of the hospital within one hour not feeling any pain.
Sick weeks late I went back to see Mr. Hobbs. Wow to compare the photos of before and after was quite a shock. Where had those bumps gone.
Mr. Hobbs scanned my legs to check everything was as it should be. He was, yet again very attentive and answered my queries. I left very happy.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Hobbs to anyone. I would say if in doubt go and talk it through. There are choices.
