Kurt Greenwood visited Modern Vascular in Fort Worth, TX. His knees, feet, and ankles have swelling and pain. He was desperate for any kind of improvement. Other doctors would just prescribe him pain pills, but they only offered temporary relief. Kurt came in for the angiogram and had a procedure on his left leg. Then, he had the procedure done on his right leg two weeks later.
After having the procedure on his left foot he visited his endocrinologist. The doctor took the pulse in both of his feet. He noticed that the pulse in the left foot was three times greater in the left foot than the right foot. Kurt told the doctor that he had a procedure done with Modern Vascular. The doctor was amazed because he recommends patients to Modern Vascular, but was unaware of how severe Kurt’s condition was.
Kurt went back and had the procedure done on his right leg as well. He said this of Dr. Wande Pratt, “Dr. Pratt has been very informative and helpful. He did both of the procedures. He is just a personable, compassionate, and delightful gentleman.”
Here’s some of what he had to say:
“My name is Kurt Greenwood and I am a patient of Modern Vascular. I came about six months ago and had the original appointment. I found out that I need the arteries in both of my legs cleaned. I was told all kinds of things that would happen and I’m thinking if there’s a 10% improvement, I’m all for it. I had sore knees, incredibly sore feet and ankles, swelling, and discomfort was the biggest thing. Other doctors had seen me – you get pain pills – which are great, temporarily.
They told me that a lot of that would be cleared up, and I am sitting here thinking a 10% improvement would be super. I came in and got an angiogram, insurance companies decided that I was a go. So, I came back and had the left leg done.
Two weeks later I came back for my right leg, but in between, I went to my endocrinologist and he was taking the pulse in my feet and he checked the left foot and checked the right foot. I hadn’t seen him for a little over two years. He went back and checked both feet. He looked at me and he said, “What has happened?” I said “what’s the matter?” and he said “the pulse in your left leg is probably three times stronger than your right. I told him that I had the PAD procedure on my left leg at Modern Vascular. He reached up onto his shelf and handed me one of their brochures. He said, “I refer people there all the time.”
“Great procedures. The pain was minimal. The pain that it took from my body was substantial and I can’t say enough about them. They are absolutely marvelous and I love service like that any place. They were great. The pain has gone from maybe a 10 most of the time to a 1 or a 2.”
