Wondering how to find a good vein doctor? Here is some advice from a top medical clinic

More than half of older Americans have visible veins on their legs. These can either be varicose veins – those twisted, bulging rope-like structures, or smaller, fine bluish lines called spider veins. These veins are more than just unsightly blemishes – they can indicate the presence of underlying vein disease, called chronic venous insufficiency. Treating visible veins, therefore, needs both experience and skill, and choosing the right vein doctor is important. Here’s a list of what you need to evaluate when you look for a vein doctor.

Does your vein doctor have the right credentials to treat vein disease?

Almost any doctor can technically treat vein disease, but your chances of success increase when you specifically choose a vein specialist. Vein doctors called phlebologists, are specialists who have received special training in the diagnosis and management of vein disease. Seeing a phlebologist will ensure that there are no mistakes made in the diagnosis of your vein condition. A vein doctor may have a background in internal medicine, anesthesiology, or even surgery – some of the best vein experts are vascular surgeons. Regardless of their background, ensure that you choose a board-certified physician who has a recognized accreditation in the field of vein medicine.

Does your vein doctor offer minimally invasive vein treatment?

Traditionally, the only method to treat varicose and spider veins was to remove the entire vein surgically. This required invasive surgery, necessitating the use of anesthesia and needing a long recovery time. However, vein treatment today has advanced considerably with the introduction of minimally invasive treatment. Modern vein treatment can be done in the outpatient clinic under local anesthesia – In fact, the most advanced forms of treatment like VenaSeal do not even require local anesthesia! This treatment aims at blocking blood circulation through the defective vein. Once blood stops flowing through the vein, the vein becomes defunct, and slowly gets absorbed by body enzymes.

Unlike surgery, minimally invasive vein treatment is quick – can be done in less than an hour, and requires absolutely no recovery time. So, you would need to choose a vein doctor who treats varicose veins with minimally invasive vein treatment, and prefers this to traditional treatment for varicose and spider veins.

Does your doctor focus exclusively on vein treatment?

If your doctor works in a vein clinic that does exclusive vein treatment procedures, chances are they have a vast amount of training and experience in this field. If your doctor has had years of experience in performing vein treatments, they are well aware of what can go wrong, what mistakes not to make, and what treatments will provide the best outcomes. Besides this, exclusive focus can be a sign of the doctor’s love for and dedication to vein medicine. Obviously, choosing a doctor who loves his job will increase your chances of better outcomes!

Is your vein doctor kind and compassionate?

Your vein doctor may be the best specialist available – but it is equally important that you feel comfortable and able to bond with him or her. Your vein doctor should be patient enough to answer all your questions, and should be willing to explain the treatment process, including anticipated complications in detail. Vein doctors who come across as caring individuals are more likely to treat you as a person, and not just as another case.

Does your vein doctor accept insurance?

Symptomatic vein disease is usually covered by insurance. You should ensure that your vein doctor accepts the kind of insurance coverage you carry. Vein treatment can be expensive, and you don’t want to end up paying out of your pocket. Even if you have a symptomless condition, such as spider veins, your doctor should be able to evaluate you for underlying venous insufficiency. Since treating spider veins usually is not covered by insurance, you shuld at least be able to ensure that the veins don’t recur – which can easily happen if you don’t get the underlying venous insufficiency diagnosed and treated.
