We can help you take the first step toward healthier, happier legs. If you're like many people, you may have put off a decision about getting treatment because you were anxious about what might happen. At VeinSolutions, we know almost as much about treating the butterflies in our patients' stomachs as we do about treating their vein problems. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff has a unique patient-focused approach to care that will put you at ease.
Each one of our VeinSolutions offices has personalized their services to best suit their patients, but typically the steps closely follow this process.
STEP 1: Evaluation
Whether you find VeinSolutions on your own or come in because of your doctor’s referral, the first step will be an initial evaluation. (Many of our offices provide the initial evaluation free of charge. Check the VeinSolutions near you.)
During this first visit you’ll provide information about your medical history and describe your current symptoms to the doctor. The doctor will also examine the affected area. It’s a simple process, and you will feel completely comfortable in our friendly offices.
Based on this evaluation, the doctor will then determine if the problem is medical or cosmetic. If your treatment is deemed medically necessary and not cosmetic, insurance documentation will be filed on your behalf for any follow-up visits and tests. You and your doctor will discuss the next steps.
STEP 2: Scheduled Test
Should the doctor determine that your condition is medical (from the initial screening) further testing is usually necessary. Typically, the test that’s recommended is an ultrasound.
The ultrasound test is completely non-invasive and painless. It simply helps us see patterns of blood flow and to accurately diagnose a potential disorder. Immediately following the completion of the test, the doctor analyzes the results and gives you a diagnosis. At this point, your options for treatment will be discussed in detail. You’ll be provided with information about treatments to help you make a decision about the next steps.
STEP 3: Treatment
For each patient, treatment may vary, depending on symptoms, diagnosis, and requirements for treatment. But the staff at VeinSolutions will certainly make sure all your questions are answered and that you’re entirely comfortable and informed during whatever treatment is prescribed for you.
