6 Questions The Vein Clinic Near Me Should Answer
June 27, 2020
We understand that patient’s are rightly concerned about getting the right diagnosis and treatment for vein disease. Your vein health is incredibly important and having an experienced vein doctor can be the difference between relief and disappointment. To that end, we have put together this simple guide to help you find the best vein doctor for spider and varicose vein treatment.
1. Who Is The Vein Specialist
A vein specialist is ideally board-certified in a vascular speciality (cardiology, vascular medicine or vascular surgery). Too often, we are now seeing vein clinics staffed by non-vascular physicians, in which case they might lack the experience for spider and varicose vein treatment.
2. What Vein Treatments Are Offered
Vein treatment in this day and age has become far more simplified and easier on patients. Most treatments can be performed in the office without surgical incisions or sedation. Effective treatments include vein ablation, sclerotherapy, and phlebectomy.
3. How is Vein Disease Evaluated
The presence of spider and varicose veins suggests vein disease. Symptoms including leg cramps, restless legs, and/or swelling are further indication. The diagnosis of vein disease can only be made with a diagnostic ultrasound to look at the size and function of leg veins.
4. Is My Condition Dangerous
Spider and varicose veins are in large part harmless. There are very few individuals who develop more serious concerns related to DVT (blood clots), skin discoloration, or skin ulcerations. Vein treatment should be guided by a desire to improve quality of life rather than unnecessary worry.
5. Does Insurance Cover Vein Treatments
Unless you have only cosmetic concerns, you are going to want to learn about your insurance coverage. This includes understanding your co-insurance for treatment with medically recommended procedures. Most indicated procedures are covered and a dedicated insurance specialist can provide worry-free authorizations.
6. Are Spider Veins Treated Here
Shockingly, not all vein doctors treat spider veins. This is often by choice as some vein doctors add vein ablation to their medical clinics (cardiology, pain management, dermatology). These offices focus only on higher paying procedures and avoid more time-consuming spider vein treatments. A dedicated vein clinic will provide comprehensive care with honest treatment expectations.
Finding the right vein specialist is the most important step towards getting the right diagnosis and treatment.
