What to expect from your first visit

Our focus is on patient experience and clinical outcomes, and it all starts from this thorough initial evaluation. One of our highly trained vascular technicians (VT) will perform an ultrasound of both legs to determine the extent of the problem. This ultrasound is a thorough scan that looks at both the deep and superficial veins throughout each leg. The VT will note all issues within the venous system (that is, the network of veins that delivers blood back to the heart).

Dr. Schul and his nurse will assess the scan results and then meet with the patient. Dr. Schul will examine the patient’s legs, present the scan findings, and review options.

If the patient’s symptoms, physical exam, and ultrasound reveals that treatment is needed, a treatment plan is developed with the patient. Before the patient leaves our clinic, they will understand their condition, have an opportunity to ask any questions, and know a path toward getting legs feeling and looking great again.
