Customer Question
I probably need to have...
I probably need to have varicose veins in both my lower legs treated by injection. Where do I find a surgeon who either charges the common fee or does the procedure in a hospital environment which would allow me to claim on my hospital fund.

Hi there. The best way to find a Surgeon, is to call your insurance company as ask them for a list of surgeons. This information can also sometimes be found on the insurance company's website. Another possibility is to consult with your Primary Care Physician. Hope this is what your looking for.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
