TESTIMONIALS

"I had contemplated having this procedure for a number of years..."

I had contemplated having this procedure for a number of years, yet I delayed and continued to live with aches and pains of the varicose veins. When I met Dr. Draughn and his staff, I realized this could be helped…

"I am so proud of how my legs look! "

I am so proud of how my legs look! Everyone on Dr. Draughn’s staff is friendly and caring. Dr. Draughn cares about you. I advise anyone who want their legs done to go to Vein Specialists of the Carolinas, they are good.

"I had contemplated having this procedure for a number of years..."

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Draughn and his staff. When I went for my appointment the receptionist greeted me with a smile. After I filled out my paperwork she told me that some one would be with me shortly…

"I could not be more happy!"

One year after having had varicose vein surgery with Dr. Draughn (and spider vein treatments with Beverly), I could not be more happy! The discomfort in my lower leg is gone, my calves are actually the same size again (for the first time in 15+ years!)…

"I had contemplated having this procedure for a number of years..."

I really had no idea how much help this procedure would bring to me. I now sleep much better than before, no more restless legs! My legs also look much better than before the surgery which was an added plus. Thank you, Dr. Draughn for all your patience and help.
