I’m a mother of four children, although I’ve had eight pregnancies. My first child was born when I was almost 34 and my last was born a week after my 40th birthday. Four children in 6 years, combined with my age, took a toll on the veins in my legs, and I developed several SVT’s with my last two pregnancies. After my last child was born, I endured severe pain in my legs for 5 years before I heeded the commercials I saw on TV. Additionally, I decided to invest in the appearance of my legs that were damaged by the varicose veins causing extensive spider veins covering both legs. The procedures were not bad and the outcome was phenomenal. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Dr. Harper and all his staff!
P.S. The schlerotherapy was one of the best INVESTMENTS I ever made!*
World-class customer care providers and services were a huge part of the wonderful care and service I received. THANK YOU for the outstanding care throughout my procedures and visits. You provided fast and friendly, quick and easy care. Much appreciated!
Very happy with the results of the procedures that Dr. Harper did and also his making sure I understood everything that he was about to do. He was very personable, friendly and patient with me and made me feel very at ease. Also, would like to thank his P.A.'s, nurses and other support staff for the outstanding work they did and their friendliness and assistance to make my experience there a good one. It was an excellent team effort, which made me feel that I was in very competent hands. Very happy to have been a patient there.
“I came to my first visit with doubt that someone could help my conditions with my legs being the way they were, but after going through therapy I was very pleased with how much swelling had left my legs.“*
I have great results from wearing the support hose. I never knew that my legs were tired until I started wearing them. I even told the doctor that I had no trouble with my legs and only came to see him to satisfy my wife. Oh, how wrong I was! Thanks for your expertise.*
Everybody was so friendly. I trust Dr. Harper. I feel like I did the right thing. I have more energy and am feeling better. I do believe that this has helped me. Go to your doctor, get a recommendation and talk with Dr. Harper and staff. Trust their recommendations and follow through with the procedure. I have nothing but good things to say and am so thankful.*
My mom and I saw Dr. Harper for the first time yesterday and were very pleased as well as impressed with everything from the check-in, the work-up for the procedure, and the overall efficiency and professionalism of Dr. Harper, the nurses, techs, and the office staff. We have the utmost confidence that Dr. Harper and his staff will take excellent care of us. Thank you all very much.*
In 2007, I retired and relocated to the Macon area. During my working years, I developed large varicose veins and much pain. The veins were so bad that I had to wear pants to the beach so no one would see my legs. I made an appointment with our new physician in Macon. I asked him if something could be done with my legs other than just stripping the veins. His comment was, “I have just the doctor for you, Dr. Harper.” In fact, he was going for a procedure on one of his legs.
After an extensive examination and consultation with Dr. Harper, I felt that I had finally found the physician to perform my vein procedures. Dr. Harper did one leg one week and the other leg the next week. The one thing that amazed me was within several days of each operation, I was able to resume most normal activities.
In March of 2008, Dr. Harper performed what I would call a miracle on my legs. I no longer have pain in my legs and I wear shorts almost every day. Doctor Harper and his staff spoke with me and gave me pamphlets on how to take care of my legs. I’m well aware that I have to take care of my legs and now I have the knowledge to do so.*
“I was up and moving around immediately following the (Closure) procedure. The next day, I no longer had the heaviness in my legs. The success of the treatment was apparent immediately”
Ila’s symptoms began at the age of 24 during her pregnancy. She experienced “leg pain, especially when standing for long periods of time.” She was “self-conscious about the wormy like (varicose) veins and was uncomfortable wearing shorts and skirts.” Vein problems are common in Ila’s family. Both her mother and sister were treated with traditional vein stripping and were left with noticeable scars and persisting symptoms.
Ila sought a treatment that would be less invasive. Dr. Harper recommended the Closure procedure. Ila was confident in Dr. Harper’s recommendation and was pleased to find out that her insurance covered 100% of the cost. The procedure was performed with local anesthesia and minimal sedation. Ila stated, “I was comfortable throughout the procedure and aware of my surroundings.” Ila was active right after the procedure and has resumed recreational activities including golf, tennis, and swimming. She stated, “I’d highly recommend Vein Specialists of the South and the Closure procedure.*
Dr. Harper is an excellent doctor. He communicates effectively with the patient and is easy to talk to. He talks to you and not at you. He gives a good examination and explains the process. He also explains the sonogram results. Dr. Harper’s staff does an excellent job also. They are very knowledgeable and efficient with their jobs and put the patients first and work as a TEAM. It is very evident and refreshing. I had a good appointment experience.*
Vein care has given me greater confidence not only in my appearance but also my ability to accomplish daily tasks without pain! I would tell anyone who was curious about getting their legs looked at to “Just Do It” – without doubt or hesitation! I wish I had made the decision to have my procedures done sooner.
I was very pleased with the professionalism of the practice and the results! From the first time I came to Vein Specialists, I knew without a doubt that I had made the right decision concerning my health. As I continued through the process, that feeling stayed with me. Dr. Harper and his entire staff have been and absolutely are the BEST – knowledgeable, professional, caring, and dedicated.*
Overall, vein care has improved my life by giving me great self-esteem. I was very self-conscious before, but after I had the procedure, I am not at all. If friends or family members were curious about having their veins evaluated and treated I would tell them to not put it off if they are having problems. It is a very easy procedure. The practice was very friendly and professional.
I love the overall results and would definitely do it again. Any future problems I will come back to the Vein Specialists to see Dr. Harper and his Staff.*
My legs have been an embarrassment for years. When my grandson said “Nana, what is wrong with your legs?” I finally caved and decided to call Dr. Harper’s office. Now wearing shorts or a dress is no longer a problem.
I would tell any friend or family member who is curious about having their veins treated, don’t wait! The experience was not painful and the entire staff bent over backwards to be professional, friendly and addressed every question very well. Check out the website – then go!
There were two things that pleased me most throughout the course of my treatment at Vein Specialists. The staff were all very compassionate and helpful – the office ran smoothly like a well-oiled machine and Dr. Harper and the nursing staff offered thorough pre-op education, careful explanations of every procedure, and likewise, post-op care. I am so glad to have found this great group of people. I would and do recommend Vein Specialists to anyone.*
