When dealing with unsightly varicose or spider veins or the more serious venous ulcers and blood clots, you need the help of a skilled physician, preferably one with specialized training to ensure you get proper diagnosis and treatment.
What to Look in a Physician
If you are considering varicose vein treatment, here are a few key qualities you can use to identify a great vein doctor:
1. Education and Certification
This is one of the first things that you should find out when choosing a vein doctor to ensure that you get the care you need. A doctor who is board-certified in Phlebology will give you peace of mind knowing that your diagnosis and treatment will be both safe and effective. These certifications prove that the physician has received the necessary training and is qualified to deliver high quality care for a wide range of vascular diseases, including varicose veins.
It helps if you know how successful the physician has been in previous, similar procedures. There are several treatment options for varicose veins, and you may not necessarily be a good candidate for all of them. If your physician is only comfortable performing one type of treatment that is not necessarily the most effective for your specific case, then you will be keeping yourself from receiving the best care possible – yet you’ll probably end up paying the same.
3. Good Communication
To receive the best treatment for any condition, you need to be open with your physician. It is important that you feel comfortable enough with your vein doctor to reveal essential information about your health, family history, and lifestyle truthfully. Working with a friendly physician and team increases the likelihood of making honest and pleasant conversations when receiving your treatment.
Keep in mind that varicose treatments are usually administered in a series of appointments over several months. So you need to find a skilled vein specialist near you to make your treatments convenient.
