I had a venous ablation performed on both legs in the spring/summer of 2018, and it has made a HUGE difference! I was experiencing major swelling in my lower extremities daily, and was recommended to Dr. Ford by my primary care physician. From my first visit to my last, the staff was exceptional. Dr. Ford and Kristen were both professional, informative, and experienced; and the nurse, Lesley, and the ultrasound tech, Brian, were exceptional! Both of the latter made me feel comfortable and relaxed, even going so far as to comfort me while I was panicking during my first procedure, and encourage me to laugh and chat through my second so I wouldn’t panic again.
My swelling has slowly decreased since my procedures, and is now nearly gone entirely, and my scars have faded nicely. My entire experience at Vascular Solutions was phenomenal, and I will certainly recommend them to anyone who is in need of a vascular doctor. 🙂
One of my best Christmas gifts ever has come from Dr. Peter
Ford at Vascular Solutions and the wonderful results from the VenaSeal procedure. What a blessing to be rid of the horrible leg pain, swelling, cramping and itching caused by venous reflux disease! The procedures were virtually painless and conveniently performed in the office based around my work schedule–kudos to all who made this happen so smoothly. May the New Year bring peace, joy and good health to all. Love always, LaNae. P.S. Watch out Rockettes–I have my dancing legs again!!
Dr. Ford explained the veins I was seeing could be the result of an underlying issue. The questions he asked forced me to think more closely about my life style.
After a sonogram, Dr. Ford discovered I did need more than a cosmetic treatment. He mentioned that it was nothing critical but would certainly help. Dr. Ford discussed with me a scope of treatment and I agreed.
The results were amazing! After 6 weeks of treatment, I am sleeping better than I’ve slept in the last 10 years. I had no idea what “restless leg syndrome” really was. I had heard of it but didn’t know the scope of it. In hindsight I now realize it was keeping me awake.
I’m able to work towards my old workout routine. I thought the heavy feeling I was experiencing in my legs was just an aging issue.
Dr. Ford and his staff are amazing. Kristin, Daphane and Brian made me feel as if I were their only patient.
I went to see Dr. Ford at Vascular Solutions 6 weeks ago. I had 4 procedures done on my legs to remove veins that were causing me problems. Dr. Ford and his excellent staff treated me great and the problems in my legs were stopped. I would highly recommend Vascular Solutions.
After 3 failed vascular surgeries, I couldn’t stand the pain and inability to walk anymore. I saw an ad and went to Dr. Ford for a consultation and he said that he could help me. I said yes, I was in so much pain..what did I have to lose? This was by far the BEST decision I’ve ever made! I am now pain free thanks to Dr. Ford, the best vascular surgeon ever, and his WONDERFUL staff – Danny, the best, most compassionate U/S tech ever, PA Kristin, nurses and front desk staff. Thank You all for giving me a new lease on life! My daughter will be going there in the Fall. Five 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟from me.
“Vascular Solutions was referred to me by another doctor. It is possibly the best referral I’ve ever been given. Every member of the office and medical staff were welcoming, gracious, caring and very informative as I learned of my problems and impending procedures. Dr. Ford also took the time to explain exactly what was going to happen and what to expect after my Ablation procedures. Prior to my procedures I was experiencing debilitating leg cramps. Since my procedures, I have not had the first leg cramp. I couldn’t be more pleased.
Because I had such a fabulous experience, my wife is starting treatment this week with Dr. Ford. I am sure she will have the same experiences I had. I have also referred Dr. Ford to a few friends who have mentioned their need for relief as well.
I truly believe, that if you use Vascular Solutions, you will know you have made the right decision the minute you walk in the door.”
“I knew that I had “reflux” in my leg veins and very poor circulation, but put off having surgery on them for several years, since I had heard it was invasive and painful. When the lack of circulation caused pain, itching and swelling I had to do something about it. Vascular Solutions was just what my legs needed. Dr Ford was very informative regarding how the procedure worked. My legs feel so much better. I don’t know why I waited so long. I thought it would be painful, but it was easy. I highly recommend Dr. Ford and his staff. Everyone was very professional, friendly and nice. I am very excited about the way my legs feel and look. Thank you so much Dr. Ford.”
“After my radiofrequency procedure, my legs have felt the best they have felt in years. The procedure was simple and I felt immediate relief. The staff was friendly and accommodating.”
“Before coming to see Dr. Ford, I had tingling and pain in my leg. My friend recommends Dr. Ford, and now I feel better. People here are very friendly, they have someone who speaks my language (Spanish). I recommend this office because they make me feel at home. They have changed my life and health. Thank you.”
“Most impressed by the amount of time Dr. Ford spent with me during my first visit. Clearly explained all procedures and expectations. Office staff are very efficient and helpful. Medical support staff were most helpful and informative. Very pleased with this medical group.”
“It was an easy journey having multiple procedures done by Dr. Peter Ford. He was attentive and answered all of my questions and concerns. The office staff is pleasant and do a great job getting you in on time. The facility is new and clean. I would highly recommend this office.”
“When I started this adventure with my legs, I was feeling really bad. My legs looked so bad and felt extremely heavy. I could not stand on my legs for any length of time, especially when shopping or at the grocery store. My family physician recommended Dr Ford to me. I started the procedures in October of 2016. I came in for radiofrequency surgery and phlebectomy to both legs. These procedures treated my insufficient veins, as well as removed the bulging varicose veins. In February of 2018, I returned for a follow-up appointment and my legs look so much better. They feel so much lighter and are no longer heavy. I sleep better at night and am pain free. I have recommended Dr Ford to my friends. He is so wonderful, and I am glad I found him. I’m looking forward to the future.”
“Working with Dr. Ford and his support staff at Vascular Solutions has been wonderful, especially after having such a negative experience with another vascular treatment group. I am very grateful for the excellent care I have received throughout the many different procedures. I have needed to restore strong, healthy functioning legs.
It is hard to put into words what it has meant to me to be able to climb a flight of stairs or simply go for a walk without pain and exhaustion. Having confidence and no longer feeling embarrassed to put on a pair of shorts or wear a dress that comes above my ankles is such a gift. Simply saying thank you doesn’t seem like enough.”
“I had varicose veins on my left leg and my primary Doctor recommended Dr. Peter Ford at Vascular Solutions. At Vascular Solutions they explained everything and made you feel at ease. The experience was very pleasant.
The staff made you feel very comfortable during the entire procedure. I had to go 2 times for surgery and one for injections. A shout out to Brian and the rest of the staff for taking such great care of me.
If you have Blue Cross Blue Shield the procedure was covered at 100 % and I was just responsible for the co-pay at each visit. I strongly recommend Vascular Solution and Dr. Peter Ford.”
“Before the procedure I was experiencing extreme cramping at night, that would awaken me from sleep. The RFA procedure was painless and the results have been very good. I would recommend it to anyone. I’ve already told my former coworker and niece about the procedure. The sclerotherapy has made my legs look the best they’ve ever looked. The location was also easy to get to from Rockingham.”
“I couldn’t run for a year. Within a week of undergoing treatment for my varicose veins using the VenaSeal therapy, I was able to run three miles with no problem.”
“I remember when I was too embarrassed to wear shorts or dresses or even walk without pain because of my varicose veins. I had four procedures (which didn’t hurt) and was able to go on vacation to Italy one month later. I walked everywhere without pain and could even wear dresses! What a wonderful difference.”
“I would like to say thank you again for your professionalism and service during and prior to my VenaSeal procedure. I was somewhat skeptical and nervous about the process, yet your staff from the front desk(Crystal/Stephanie) personnel, financial manager (Marcia), to the technical and medical staff provided excellent service and professionalism the entire time.
I appreciate Dr. Ford’s demeanor and his willingness to go over my questions several times. His expertise is rare. It was obvious you are passionate about the service you provide! Thank you nurse Mandy for sharing your experience and always having a smile on your face. Your story testimony definitely gave me more confidence. Brian, you sir are an artist. That picture you put together of my leg was incredible. While I am still in healing mode, I am hoping for the best.
Thank you again.”
“Being a patient at Vascular Solutions has been life-changing for me. Before I went to see Dr. Ford, my legs were so swollen and in constant pain. On top of that, wearing shorts was embarrassing because of unsightly bulging veins and large purple spots on my legs. My job was being affected, and it was getting more difficult to stand and cook and care for my family. After my first visit to Vascular Solutions, I knew I found the solution to end my suffering. Dr. Ford is so knowledgeable and informative, as well as patient, friendly and kind. The staff could not have been more helpful or more personable. I felt right at home and so comfortable with my care in their hands. After my procedure, I felt such a big difference. My legs felt lighter and walking or standing was easier. I am no longer in pain and the swelling has stopped. I can do so much more now that I would not have felt like doing before. It gets even better, because the ugly bulging veins and purple spots are gone as well and I will wear shorts again! I can’t thank Dr. Ford and his staff enough for the wonderful care they provided me. I will definitely continue coming to Vascular Solutions and have already recommended their great care to others. Now that I look and feel so great, I will be sending a post card from the beach! Thank you again for all you do! I feel like I can go back to nursing school now and when I graduate I can only hope to find such wonderful people to work with and make such a difference in someone else’s life as you have made in mine!”
“The staff is so nice and caring. Dr. Ford is a nice caring doctor who really puts his patients first.”
“Dr. Ford has done more for my legs, where other Doctors have failed. He is a very caring doctor, and all the staff treat you like they have known you forever and like you are family.”
“When I came in my leg had all kinds of problems. Since seeing Dr. Ford I’ve been very satisfied. The healing process and results are great. His mannerisms and attentiveness made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Ford.”
“The best…everybody is friendly, very helpful and you feel like family when you go into the office. They acknowledge you by your first and last name.”
“I had an ulcer on my ankle. I don’t know how many doctors I’ve been to prior to Vascular Solutions. I met with Dr. Ford and he fixed my bad veins in the legs and put them in an Unna Boot. My wounds are now almost healed. I just love the staff here. Mandy, Brian, Julio and Stephanie I just love them all. I couldn’t ask for better service.”
“It has been a real pleasure coming into Vascular Solutions for my swollen legs and feet. The doctors and staff have eased any anxiety I may have had coming in today. They are truly kind, caring, professional and understand what their patients’ needs are. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs help in any kind of vascular problems.”
“I have been dealing with a vascular problem in my legs for almost twenty years. I had a clogged artery and a bypass done between legs about 8 years ago and legs felt good but that did not solve the problem. My feet and legs were still bothering me after five years. This past year I was going to my family doctor more than usual. I was referred to a foot specialist who referred me to Vascular Solutions P.C. I had outpatient vein surgery done. It was painless. I still wear vascular stockings and support stockings but I feel that my legs and feet are feeling much better and I am able to walk more with less pain. I come in once a week to use the circulatory pump. That helps out a great deal too. I recommend Vascular Solutions. I’ve been coming here about four months and they have done a fabulous job. They care about you and want you to be able to live better and be able to walk with none or less pain.”
