I get it.

Anything that pertains to your rear end can be a source of amusement or embarrassment. The latter keeps many people from coming to see me as soon as they notice the pain, burning and itch associated with hemorrhoids.

Eventually they decide the gain is far better than living with the pain and schedule an appointment.

Here’s what happens when they do:

During the free consultation, I ask specific questions about their condition and answer any questions they have. If patients want to go ahead with an examination, they are given a pair of paper shorts with a flap in the back. They put them on and are fully covered. They lay comfortably on their side and put their knees up like in the fetal position.

The initial exam takes just a few minutes. For treatment, pretty much the same thing happens except the procedure takes just a few seconds more. It’s just that quick.

I’ve performed more than 30,000 procedures, so you have nothing to be embarrassed about. Nearly all of my patients who waited to get treated because they were embarrassed tell me they wish they would have come in sooner.

If you’re experiencing itching, bleeding and burning and think you might have hemorrhoids, give me a call and I will rectify it.

I offer two, non-surgical methods to treat hemorrhoids. One reduces the blood flow that feeds the hemorrhoids, improving inflammation and causing them to shrink. The other is better suited to removing larger hemorrhoids. Both take just a few seconds to do. Since they are performed in an area with no nerve endings, they can be administered right in the comfort of my office without anesthesia.

There is virtually no pain, no prep needed, there are no major restrictions, and you don’t have to take time off of work. Our procedures are also covered by insurance.
