Passion through veins

veinsMy feet-long headache. MOM, Dad, grandmother-what is anyone’s guess who “gave” me a beauty. The result is the same — in 27 years without a longing look at his feet could not. And the long-awaited pregnancy and childbirth is clearly not improved their appearance.

Celebrating its 30th anniversary, I am an impartial look at your feet and finally decided to go to flebologu.

And here I had a question: where, exactly, to go, who to contact? The assistants I had Internet. Has set its objectives:

1. the clinic must be large, and varicose veins there should be dealt with seriously, and not in addition to Mesotherapy.
2. the clinic must exist for a long time. For over 10 years is identified.
3. do not like to go in the  clinic is wanted on the Internet find out to whom I can get that for doctors, which have experience. Health I have one! Also for himself brushed off the clinic where the luminaries of the scientific name was tempting.
4. and I for myself only, I love all the new, modern, correct.

Of the total wealth of choice that the Internet offered to me, I stopped at a multidisciplinary clinic (painfully loud in her name, and heard many good things about them) and on the three specialized clinics.

First on my list was a multidisciplinary clinic. The outside is beautiful. Inside is welcoming. Reception is good. But then not all as good as desired. The list of services of the multidisciplinary clinic evoked memories for me from the beginning of the 90 ‘s. reminded of Herbalife. Who does not remember, let me remind you. Was such a wonder-drug, which for several days had promised to get rid of a whole heap of interesting problems and diseases. And here is me not trust that the experts of this clinic are all (and seriously, as it seemed to me). So, I will treat your feet, and in the adjacent Cabinet to do our (who does not know is a megaklizma for half an hour)? So, as they say, meet on odezhke and see off. …

Then I contacted the three specialized center, but stopped on one — the oldest and largest our vein diagnostic and treatment center of Moscow. And he drew me a serious attitude to me, to my problems.

This clinic was the only I have visited where visitors and besides me. For me this is a good sign. The doctor I was just fascinated. I respect people with a unique style of communication, with a sense of humor and a kind of speech. And if this is an absolute professionalism, I give up and lift my hands (in this case, the legs). The result, however, did not amuse: “Varicosis of both lower limbs”. Recommended surgical treatment, compression stocking and vein tonics. He was voiced by another option is ehosklerozirovanie. The doctor sent me for a free consultation with a leading specialist in the field of Phlebology-professors, doctors, and advised him to believe. Whatever I chose, in any case, the clinic has entered into an agreement with me would be the European standard for treatment and annual monitoring.

Professor’s consultation was held a week later. As it turned out, Professor  record every 20 minutes. The verdict of Professor — you can do without surgery. Perhaps, I would obey her without hesitation. The other day going to be healed — I think I didn’t let down women’s logic.
