Please Note: Compression Stockings are part of our complete therapy approach If you are receiving treatment for VARICOSE VEINS, you will be required to purchase measured-to-fit compression stockings.  They are available for purchase at our clinic or at some pharmacies.  A certified Compression Therapist will take your measurements for stockings.  The cost is often covered by extended health plans.  Prescriptions are provided during your assessment appointment with the doctor.  Stockings have to be preordered so please allow 10-14 days for arrival.

 DEPENDING ON THE SEVERITY OF YOUR VARICOSE VEINS, YOU MAY BE REQUIRED TO TAKE TIME OFF WORK FOLLOWING TREATMENT (usually one to three days).
