I am a 64 year old female. I had trouble with my legs for over two years. I had restless legs, could hardly walk. Dr Charles Austin Hunt II, performed three vein surgeries, two on the left leg and one on the right leg. I was afraid, but the staff put me right at ease, after my surgeries, I walk three miles a day, three times a week! I can run, kneel and even squat now. Dr Hunt and staff at the Alabama Vein Center, are very professional and genuinely caring. The care I received was amazing. I highly recommend Dr Hunt and his staff. They truly changed my life

Mrs. LP is a 74 year old varicose vein patient who sought consultation regarding pain and swelling in her legs with severe nighttime leg cramping. She also complained of rather severe neuropathy of her left leg.

After her varicose vein treatment procedure which included laser ablation of her great and small saphenous veins, the patient described the following.

"Swelling has almost completely disappeared, nighttime cramping is no longer present, and 70% of my neuropathy has disappeared. I do not need a walker to get around any longer. Thank you so very much."

I wanted to follow up with you from my visit this afternoon, and express in writing, how pleased I am with my surgery results.  Exercise has been a big part of my life since I was a young girl.  Running has always been a favorite.  As a 47 year old woman, time and gravity were really taking a toll on the appearance and performance of my legs. Having a history of varicose veins, I knew I needed to take action, but was unsure how to proceed.  After my initial consultation with you all, I knew I had not only found the solution to my problem, but more importantly, the perfect doctor to perform the procedure. Your caring nature and patience with ALL my questions was so greatly appreciated!

My surgery was performed the week of March 25th.  I started running and spinning again the third week in April.  My speed, endurance and leg strength has improved dramatically!  I was skeptical and concerned that the surgery might impair or hamper my performance, quite the opposite has occurred.  I am able to run and spin faster and longer than I have in many years.  My legs feel so much stronger!!!  My husband has told me many times since the surgery how beautiful my legs look. 

You and your staff do a marvelous job and offer exceptional care and service!  I could not have had a better experience!!  Thank you for everything!

I was referred to Alabama Vein Centers after I was diagnosed with Venous Stasis. My initial visit was to the Oxford office. I found the staff to be friendly and knowledgeable. I then went to Birmingham for surgery. The staff went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. They were kind, caring, and proficient. I was so surprised when the doctor pushed my wheel chair to the car following my surgery. This is just an example of how caring everyone is.

My legs are improving. The swelling has gone down, and my legs do not hurt nearly as much. I even think the discoloration is improving. I am pleased that I had surgery on both legs. I am grateful to Alabama Vein Center and all of the staff.

I was very impressed and happy with the procedure you performed on both my legs to rid me of bulging veins.  Both outstanding cosmetic and improved circulation resulted from the almost painless procedure.  There was a very short recovery time and I was back in the gym in a very short time doing my normal workout.  I have shared my results with several of my friends who have and will be in touch with your office.

Thank you very much for the positive improvement you have made in my lifestyle. I would be glad to talk to any of your prospective clients.

I always meant to do something about my varicose veins, which appeared on my left leg during my fourth pregnancy and did not go away after the baby was born. For 43 years, I lived with these painful, ugly, protruding varicose veins. Finally, at my last visit my gynecologist told me, "You owe it to yourself to have a specialist look at your varicose veins. Nowadays, the procedures are much more sophisticated." That reassured me, since as a nurse practitioner I know the possible complications of vascular surgery.

Visiting Alabama Vein Center was one of the best decisions of my life. When I removed the heavy dressing 48 hours after surgery, I was shocked to find out that my ugly veins were completely gone. Please believe me, it was one of the happiest moments of my life! After two weeks, my leg was completely healed. Now, I am the proud owner of pretty legs, which I enjoy showing off by wearing shorts on warm day!

I would like to proclaim that no one should live with unwanted, painful varicose veins. For a reasonable price and minimal pain and trouble, Alabama Vein Center made my legs better than ever.

I am very honored to write something about the surgery which I received. I want the whole world to know how wonderful the procedure is, performed by the famous, kind, unique specialist, Dr. Charles A Hunt, assisted with wonderful staff. I remain ever thankful to you.

I am a maintenance man for the city of Prattville, AL. In December of 2011 I had both legs operated on for varicose veins. When finished I had 24 band-aids on one leg and 18 band-aids on the other. The operation was a complete, complete, complete success.

I wish to thank all the telephone girls on his staff, they were very professional, competent, and friendly. Likewise the doctors, nurses, and associates on his staff were very, very, very professional and very, very, very good. I can not say enough good things about them.

Alabama Vein Center has a very good business and is a very professional organization. The results of my operation was great. I have no pain in the veins, and my legs look beautiful. There is no trace of varicose anywhere. I am a happy, happy, happy patient. Thank you very much.

I wanted to let you know how pleased I am with how well the surgery for my veins went. I had my right leg done first in your Alabama location. My veins on my knee were huge. I even had my trainer at the gym comment on it and ask me if I should be exercising. It was embarrassing to say the least.

There was also a lot of pain. I line dance and I was thinking I was going to have to give it up. Summer and shorts, bathing suits were a nightmare. But thanks to you and your wonderful staff my leg is beautiful :-). Well, at sixty six years old we might have to qualify the beautiful but no veins sticking out, just smooth skin. I'm so happy with the results. The best part no more pain and I can dance again! 

I was thinking I should send you a picture of my legs in my cowboy boots! I had my left leg done in your Atlanta location and again with excellent results. I made sure I followed your directions for aftercare adn wore my support stocking. I know that is important. I have to also tell you how nice and caring your staff is. In person and also on the phone, keeping in touch and really being concerned in how you are progressing. 

Thank you!
