I have suffered with hemorrhoids for the last 33 years. They started when I was just 14 years old. Back in 2005 I had the hemorrhoidectomy surgery and it was horrific. The doctor was only able to remove 25% of the hemorrhoids, I had them so bad. I had back surgery and that surgery was easier than the hemorrhoidectomy surgery. So over the last 9 years I have continued to suffer with bleeding and itching. The hemorrhoids controlled my life. Every time I wanted to go out I would have to thinking about where the closest bathroom was and many times would decide not to even go because I was suffering so bad. So finally in the Spring of this year, I couldn’t take it any longer and decided I would have to go back and have the hemorrhoidectomy surgery. I just was not able to enjoy life. However, one day I was talking to a friend of mine that told me about this treatment and HemWell America. I knew I had to at least give it a try, what did I have to lose? So I had a consultation and initial exam. The nurse and assistant were so helpful, they explained about the quick 10-minute treatment and there was no preparation at all. I decided to have the treatment right then. It was not painful at all and literally about 10 minutes later the treatment was done. I immediately felt relief from my symptoms and was able to just walk home. Because of how bad I had hemorrhoids I had 3 more treatments and I can say today, I am hemorrhoid free. I honestly can not believe that I almost had to go through surgery again but HemWell America has cured my suffering from hemorrhoids. It has been life changing for me. I ride 25 miles a week on my bike, I run in marathons, I go out with friends without having to think twice if there will be a restroom close by. I would tell anyone suffering, don’t wait, this treatment is truly amazing and it is life altering. Thanks to HemWell America I have my life back and feel amazing.
I had been suffering with hemorrhoids for about 8 months before I had the treatment. I couldn’t sleep, I would just lay there at night, suffering with itching and bleeding from the internal hemorrhoids. I tried the creams and suppositories that my doctor recommended but nothing would help. I was desperate to find a solution, I couldn’t live my life like this. I had heard the stories about the surgery and banding procedure from friends that would not recommend these treatments. Then one day I was talking to another friend who told me about this treatment that HemWell America offered. At first I thought this is too good to be true, so I made a consultation appointment for the next day. I felt so comfortable with the experienced practitioner and medical assistant that consulted me and performed that initial exam, I immediately had the treatment done that same day. I could not believe the immediate relief I felt from the treatment. It was true what they said about painless and quick. Right after the treatment, I went right back to work, literally right after the treatment. The treatment eliminated my hemorrhoids completely and I no longer suffer. I would highly recommend this treatment and can not believe I suffered so long and did not find out about this sooner.
Like many women, my symptoms began after having two children one year apart. I suffered with daily bleeding, and often pain, for years. At one point, an episode of bleeding sent me to the doctorʼs office. Although I knew as a physician that the bleeding was classic for hemorrhoids, it was still upsetting to me. After an exam, the doctor confirmed that the bleeding was from hemorrhoids and he gave me a prescription and said in a friendly, joking manner that he would see me the next time I bleed. Sad, but true.
Treatment is a very personal decision, and the other options were just not for me. When I heard about the treatment done by HemWell America, I was very curious and really excited. EVERYTHING about it sounded great! I scheduled an appointment and had the procedure. It was very quick and I went back to taking care of my little ones as soon as I got home. I havenʼt had any symptoms since then, and that was five years ago.

I first started noticing minor symptoms about three years ago, not knowing what was causing my discomfort. Over time, the symptoms progressively got worse and became harder to ignore. I decided to do some research online and found out I was experiencing common Hemorrhoid symptoms. There are so many home remedies and over-the-counter products that would alleviate the symptoms but none were solutions to the problem. I was able to keep my symptoms under control but it would still come and go.
The HemWell’s treatment was the solution to my problem and I only regret not knowing about it sooner. I strongly encourage those suffering from hemorrhoids to get this treatment. It is so quick and painless that it seems almost unreal I dealt with the symptoms for so long.
I am very happy to share my patient experience. I received the treatment, and received IMMEDIATE RELIEF of my problematic hemorrhoids, which I found to be incredible, as the treatment only took 10 minutes, and the hemorrhoid causing my symptoms shrunk right before my Provider’s eyes. (Super cool for a mom who has been dealing with my hemorrhoids for over 20 years – all smiles over here). It was also a definite plus to find that the procedure wasn’t painful (truth be told, I was scrolling and messaging on my Facebook account the entire time J)! In conclusion, I will also express my appreciation to the genuine caring and attentiveness of the staff. They went the extra mile to ensure my comfort, which meant a lot to me. Suffice it to say that I am highly satisfied with my HemWell America experience!
I suffered with hemorrhoids for over 3 years. Those who suffer with the symptoms understand that it is an embarrassing subject to deal with. I did not immediately seek medical attention but when I eventually saw my physician, she recommended treating my symptoms using the creams I did not want to use. I could not move around during the day with cream on me. Hemorrhoids were for me a nuisance! At first, I was afraid of more pain than I was already feeling, but after the treatment I regret waiting so long to get the much needed help, HemWell America is the best gift I have ever given myself! Everyone there was so nice and informative about the treatment, they really put my fears to rest. I suffered so long that the next morning, I was sitting in the restroom waiting on the next feeling of pain, or some form of discomfort, and I had to remind myself that I had the treatment and the reason I was sitting there waiting is because I had mentally started accepting that no matter how many creams or other remedies I had previously tried, I was going to suffer for the rest of my life… Wrong! Now, I smile because I feel brand new and I will forever share my story and the HemWell America experience. A Special Thanks to Everyone involved you guys are the BEST!
I have been suffering with hemorrhoids for about 2-3 years and they have progressively gotten worse. I heard about HemWell America through a friend of mine and they told me about the treatment. I finally decided I would go see them and get the treatment. My treatment took a bit longer than 10-minutes because they treated two hemorrhoids. The staff talked with me through the whole treatment to make sure I was comfortable and increased and decreased the millicurrent as needed. I immediately felt improvement and have seen significant improvement and continued healing since the treatment. I can't emphasize enough about the friendly, comforting staff and office environment. The team was very professional and with the calming atmosphere that helped during the treatment. I don't think I could have relaxed without it. I felt better when I left the appointment; I had no limitations after the treatment.
Having undergone surgery years ago to correct a debilitating hemorrhoid condition, I avoided a recurrence at all cost.
But, in spite of my good intentions, problems did develop.
So I began to inquire among the medical profession as to what options were available in this space age; hoping against hope that someone had come up with something other than surgery, rubber bands or suppositories.
With a little luck I just happened on an article in the business section (of all places) of the Tribune, reporting a new innovative treatment for hemorrhoids.
I did further research and was sold on the procedure.
My testimony is as follows: This is what I was promised; this is what I got:
No prep time, no down time, no pain time. It’s almost unbelievable! I suggest that you call for your appointment today!
The treatment helped a lot, it stopped me from hemorrhaging so badly that I was too weak to get out of bed some mornings. Lisa, [Lisa Ferris, the Tampa Provider], is fabulous.
Lisa was excellent in the knowledge she provided me.
Very easy to deal with. Answered all my questions and was honest and up-front that this procedure would not address my issue but referred me to someone that might be able to help. I was still given helpful information to help my condition for now.
Lisa is an outstanding professional who made the procedure a positive experience. I would highly recommend her without reservation.
She was very informative. The procedure was quick and the physicians made me feel at ease.
I have never been to a more beautiful office with such an amazing and professional staff. Every person I spoke with went out of their way to make me feel at ease. Great experience!
She was very thorough and informed me of everything she was about to do at the same time she relaxed me in her demeaner. i was very impressed with her methods that made me feel more comfortable in a uneasy situation. i would recommend her to anyone.
The only thing I was a little upset about is I was told that if the surgery was not done, I would pay nothing. There was a forty five dollar charge for the exam, but because everyone I dealt with was so nice, I honestly didn't even mind. Highly recommend.
Lisa made sure she told me everything she was doing before she did it. She had me tell her if I felt any discomfort so she could lower the setting. It was a good experience.
I felt very confident in the doctor's knowledge and abilities. I also felt very comfortable with an awkward procedure. I am very happy with the entire process and they have followed up as they said they would with phone calls.
Lisa was an outstanding medical professional. She explained everything perfectly, had an excellent bedside manner, made the entire procedure very comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone.
