    I was referred to Mr Braithwaite from my local NHS hospital due to the increases of Covid this procedure was to treat my left leg for varicose veins . After the explaining on the procedure , went through to the room . Everything was explained during the operation and seeing the veins on the ultrasound and watching the procedure on screen was amazing. The final part of the operation was the veins were removed and now all is healing very well Overall I am highly satisfied how well I was looked after on the day of the procedure.
