The journey to vein health starts with finding out your personal vein health status
No two patients are alike. That’s why we offer a comprehensive first consultation at no cost to you. We start by explaining a baseline for healthy veins. We then go through a thorough exploration of your vein health. Our thorough new patient consultation and full medical exam takes roughly 1 ½ – 2 hours.
We start by getting your detailed history, asking important questions about how you’re feeling and moving on a daily and nightly basis – such as swelling, pain or other visible leg symptoms you have. We’ll take measurements and photos of your legs, and then get a “full picture” beneath the surface, of your vein health. We use a painless, color duplex ultrasound (vein mapping) to give us a clear visual of your vein health:
- Venous anatomy and any blood clots
- Vein valve function
- Blood flow changes
After the ultrasound and physical exam are complete, we will understand your specific conditions and initial treatment options. Then we’ll review the results together and spend time with you to talk about the best treatment options for your specific vein health issues.
When you are ready to begin treatment to address the vein health issues found during your full medical exam, we’ll contact your insurance company and supply them with the necessary documentation to pre-certify you for the recommended treatment.
Once we hear back from your insurance provider regarding coverage, we’ll contact you to discuss and answer any questions you may have about your treatment and associated costs.
