Like choosing an OB/GYN or family physician some patients (both men and women) prefer an experienced, understanding and skilled female physician for varicose and spider vein treatment. The entire leg, including the groin area, is often addressed during procedures. A woman’s unique, gentle and sensitive approach to care can be very comforting. There is no need to feel awkward or embarrassed when you have your veins treated.
