Dr. Brothers was Awesome!!! He took the time to explain in detail the issues Regarding my Venous insufficiency in terms that I could understand. His honesty And candor regarding possible surgical solutions was greatly appreciated Although compression hose is not my favorite fashion statement, I am grateful To know that surgery is not the only option. The staff at MUSC was one of the Most professional and pleasant people I have encountered in a long time.
