Top5 Tips For Choosing The Right Vein Doc

If you have been diagnosed with venous insufficiency, finding a qualified doctor to help you manage your condition is essential. You only get one set of legs—don't trust just anyone to help you feel (and look!) your best.

Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a disorder that impacts the leg veins, making it harder for blood to flow normally from the legs back up to the heart, forcing blood to pool in the lower limbs. Also known as venous disease or vein disease, the disorder is the root cause of varicose veins and spider veins. Vein disease can cause leg pain, swelling, aching, and cramping, and if left untreated, can worsen, leading to skin discoloration and thickening, ulcers, and even deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

How to choose the right doctor

Choosing the right doctor may seem overwhelming, especially if you are unfamiliar with vascular medicine—but it doesn't have to be if you know the qualities to look for when searching for a vein specialist.

Here are five tips for choosing the right doctor to treat your venous insufficiency symptoms.

Make sure your vein doctor is board-certified

Selecting a board-certified physician to treat your varicose veins is essential. Certification shows that your doctor has completed additional training and passed a rigorous exam. According to the American Board of Physician Specialties, having certification "testifies to the physician's mastery in their respective field of medicine. Further, it identifies the most qualified physicians and suggests which would be the best fit for a job opening in a particular medical specialty.”

All Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) physicians are board-certified experts in modern vein treatment options. Our vein physicians have higher expertise and are current on the state-of-the-art, office-based treatment options available to treat your symptoms of vein disease.

Verify your vein doctor's experience

It's also essential to look for a doctor with specific experience in treating venous disease. Ask your doctor how many patients they have treated with vein disease and their success rates. You can also look for patient reviews and testimonials online to understand the doctor's experience and reputation.

Consider their treatment approach

It's important to find a doctor who offers a wide variety of office-based, minimally invasive treatment options and will customize your vascular surgery for your specific vein condition. Choose only a doctor who takes a personalized approach to treatment and involves you in the decision-making process.

Check their availability

Venous disease often requires ongoing treatment and follow-up care. When choosing a doctor, consider their availability and accessibility. Find out how easy it is to make an appointment, how long you can expect to wait for follow-up care, and whether they offer after-hours or emergency services.

Check your insurance coverage

Finally, consider your insurance coverage when choosing a doctor. Make sure that the doctor you choose is in your insurance network and that your insurance will cover the cost of your treatment.

Center for Vein Restoration accepts insurance coverage from the largest insurance carriers, including Medicare and Medicaid. Be sure to speak to your CVR office about your insurance.
