We would like to share a patient’s experience at our clinic. We are glad to know that at Vena Vascular Lab and Vein Clinic, we are able to help our patients and make a difference in their lives. This article has been published in one of the local magazines in Los Angeles.

I wish to talk about a person who has changed my life forever. That person is the doctor that I see for my vein issues. His name is Dr. Vahe Melkonyan, and he’s the best doctor I have ever encountered.
To start with, I was suffering from leg pain for many years. Burning, cramping, and severe pain would bother me all the time. My legs were always swollen, with bulging and tortuous veins. I have seen several doctors for my condition, but all they would recommend were creams and medication. However, nothing would help and my condition would worsen by the passing of each day. I had come to the point where I had given up and would not believe any doctor’s promises.
My friends informed me of minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins. It turned out that a lot of patients suffered from this condition, and they had been successfully treated at Dr. Melkonyan’s clinic. Since I had lost all hope, my friends had to convince me to go see Dr. Melkonyan for once hoping that he could help.
From the very first minute, Dr. Melkonyan’s warm and attentive approach instilled trust in me. The doctor examined my legs, listened to my complaints, after which he explained my condition and methods of treatment. Dr. Melkonyan’s employees, who speak fluent Spanish, eased the communication between us.
Dr melkonyan’s educational background, experience, and caring approach appealed to me from the very beginning. For this reason, I agreed to start my treatment at his clinic. The procedure was performed at his clinic under local anesthesia and it only required 15-20 minutes. Immediately after the procedure was done, I was able to return to my daily activities .
After the first procedure, I felt the difference where my symptoms drastically improved. The pain in my legs and night-cramps had almost disappeared. Gradually, the swelling in my ankles and the bulging veins were gone. After completion of treatment, I forgot all about my prior suffering, and now live an active lifestyle. I am now able to take care of my grandkids and I travel around with my friends.
In conclusion, me and my family members are grateful to Dr. Melkonyan. He has helped me restore my health and beauty. I am a confident woman now, and I am able to wear my favorite outfits.
