Dr Krishnan's Veincentre Clinic Sessions

Veincentre Manchester
Thursday: 11:00 - 17:00

Veincentre Stoke
Friday: 10:00 - 17:00

Dr Krishnan has committed to working at Veincentre Manchester on a Thursday, and Veincentre Stoke every other Friday. If you book an initial consultation with Dr Krishnan, all your future appointments will be with Dr Krishnan however you are able to see him in either our Manchester or Stoke clinic. As such, it is important to note that if you opt to go ahead with treatment this will be undertaken on either a Thursday in Manchester or a Friday in Stoke (as will all future follow-up appointments). You will continue seeing Dr Krishnan at your original clinic location unless you request to move.

Occasionally Dr Krishnan may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however we cannot guarantee appointment dates on any other day than those listed above even if a previous appointment was on a different day. If you are unable to attend one of Dr Krishnan's dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with the other consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/ date to book.

Please note that due to holidays Dr Krishnan may not be available every Thursday in Manchester, or Friday in Stoke.
