Gayle - SVH Customer

I have been so pleased with the whole experience of a one stop shop. I referred myself and from the first phone call to book a consultation, SVH were able to book me for a scan and procedure date plus the cosmetic laser treatments all around my busy life.

Dianne - SVH customer

I was extremely pleased with the level of comfort I experienced before, during and after the procedure. I am very pleased with the outcome of my operation.


I found the staff very respectful. During my procedure the doctor and nurse explained what was happening, answered my questions and made me feel very comfortable.

Sarah - SVH customer

I am amazed at the results Specialist Vein Health have achieved with my spider veins – the process is easy, painless and relatively inexpensive, and I now have the confidence to wear shorts and swimwear again.

Kate - SVH customer

I have had both vein stripping and recently Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA). There is no comparison, with the RFA treatment I had hardly any pain and I was back to normal activities the next day. The results of this treatment have been amazing and it has changed my life.
