"I thought I would have pain and was concerned about being put to sleep, however I was awake during the procedure and Dr. Cutchen made sure I was always aware of everything he was doing - this was absolutely great! My legs feel wonderful, I'm extremely happy with the results." - Geraldine G., age 57
"I am extremely happy with my new legs. I no longer have the constant swelling, aches or pressure in my legs - especially when I exercise. I had no idea it could affect someone my age! I was surprised at how quickly the recovery time was and also how painless the procedure was. After a very short recovery time, my legs feel better than they have in years!" - Cory U., age 32
"I am extremely happy with my treatment. There was instant pain relief and I got my legs back!" - John N., age 56
"I am thrilled to be free of the leg pain after 25 years. I prolonged treatment after listening to ladies talking about painful 'leg stripping,' and said "No Thanks." However, the huge change in painless procedures encouraged me to improve the appearance of my legs. Plus, to have this all done in within the convenience Dr. Cutchen's office was a big bonus." - Nancy F., age 62
"I had an infection on my right leg that developed gradually over the past year and I had heard of 'vein stripping' surgery and how expensive it was. I was fearful that I was going to have to go through surgery and then worry about the cost of the surgery since the insurance stated that it was not going to cover this cosmetic procedure. After a couple of visits to your office, I found out that surgery was paid by the insurance. I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Cutchen does 'laser surgery' instead of 'vein stripping.' The surgery went well. I am pleased with my results and I am healing well." - Monica T.
"I was very happy with my varicose vein treatment. It was probably the best medical procedure I have had done to date with good short- and long-term benefits. The procedure was surprisingly 'bloodless' and eased my fears about possible side effects." - Larry C., age 61
