Painful Treatment for Varicose Veins – a thing of the past!

Dr. Rose Interview

During our video interviews with Jilanne Rose we asked her to tell us some stories about her experiences in Varicose Veins Treatment over the years. This story is about a patient who had vein stripping performed years ago and was afraid of going through the process again because of the pain she had experienced back then.

Times Have Changed

Times have changed and the best varicose vein treatment today will have minimal pain and great results. This particular patient chose endovenous ablation and couldn't be happier with the treatment and experience!

Jilanne Rose, DNP, ANP-BC is truly an expert on vein care and varicose vein treatment, and she is a great resource for any questions you may have. She does admit that she'd rather speak to patients one-on-one as opposed to being in front of a video camera, so make an appointment with her today to put your mind at ease and your body at rest!
