My father is the one who has varicose veins. He had surgery done about 3 years ago in Hong Kong and had since felt pain occasionally; but this time, it's the worse. I would say that his is more serious since he's pretty much born with it. On top of that, he doesn't speak English. Thus, he has no idea what to do nor where to go. The American Vein Institute sounds good but we live in Georgia. If there is anyway you can help (info. and etc.), please tell me. Thanks in advance.
