help! can anyone tell me how to go about finding a good surgeon/doctor to treat my varicose veins? I like the sound of the schelerotherapy (injection) more than the surgery but want to go to a really good surgeon/doctor specialising in this rather than just a cosmetic clinic. My GP offered to send a letter to the local hospital but I think this may take too long and the pain is very bad so I am looking at going private and I was thinking of looking at Northern Ireland if it was very expensive. Any pointers greatly appreciated.
