Patient Stories: Unsightly veins and pain, resolved at RIA Endovascular
I was diagnosed with a blood clot behind my left knee. I had aching in both legs. There was discoloration behind my knee and I had several “ropey” veins and my right inner knee was covered with purple spider veins. I was suffering from venous insufficiency.
I am in the medical field and worked with RIA for several years at one of the local hospitals. I have seen what an amazing job they do with their patients at the hospital. I trust them and knew that when I finally decided to do something about my legs, RIA Endovascular would be the right option for me.
After the procedure, I actually have zero leg pain! Improvement and look of my legs has also been very satisfying. It is nice to not be embarrassed if I want to go out in public while wearing shorts.
My experience at the RIA Endovascular Clinic has been fantastic. Not only are the doctors and nurse practitioners great, but so is ALL of staff.
They are professional and I can tell they genuinely care about me and my well-being. I think this is the first doctor’s office that I actually look forward to visiting.
I would highly recommend RIA to others. I see people out in public with signs of venous insufficiency and I just want to pull them aside and tell them my story and how they can get relief with the help of the RIA Endovascular clinic. It was a wonderful decision I made to finally take care of my legs.
