Vein diseases are extremely common in the United States. An estimated 25 million people suffer from vein conditions each year. As a direct result, you have a plethora of treatment options available – from doctors, clinics and even beauty spas. So what should you look at when you choose a place for vein treatment? Read on to find out!

The doctors working at the spider and varicose veins treatment center

Ultimately, the doctors are the ones who are going to treat you, so ensure that they have adequate training and skills. Although several kinds of doctors offer treatment for vein disease, it is best to choose an expert vein specialist, or a phlebologist. These doctors are board certified physicians who have received special training in the diagnosis and treatment of vein diseases.

Besides credentials, you should also look at the skill and expertise of your vein doctor. A good way to do this is to research the doctor’s profile online. This will tell you how many years of experience the vein doctor has, and any specific areas that he or she may be skilled in. Patient testimonials are another information source – you will be able to assess whether the doctor is kind, compassionate, and understanding of patient needs.

The procedures performed at the spider and varicose veins treatment center

Not long ago, varicose veins were treated with invasive surgery. This involved vein stripping under general anesthesia. Today, minimally invasive procedures are available. These procedures can be done with a single numbing injection, and require little or no recovery time. Even more advanced procedures, such as VenaSeal do not even require this injection. The invasive vein stripping procedure may still be primarily offered at such centers – either due to lack of skill, or limited resourcesfor performing minimally invasive procedures. You should choose a vein center that prefers minimally invasive procedures over vein stripping.

Spider veins are best treated with sclerotherapy. Certain vein clinics and vein spas offer laser treatment for spider veins, largely because this procedure does not need trained physicians. However, these require multiple sessions to achieve the same results as sclerotherapy, and the overall cost becomes higher.

Varicose veins are distended blood vessels protruding from the surface of the skin caused by vein disease. In this article, we discuss how to choose the best varicose vein doctor.

The working staff and the overall ambience

Right from the front desk to the nurses who assist during the procedure, your vein doctor will be helped by a lot of staff. Chances are, these people are the ones who will answer your queries, and interact with you on a personal level. A good vein clinic has staff who work seamlessly as a team, and comfort and guide you properly throughout your visit. Again, looking at patient testimonials can go a long way in assessing the working staff. Or, you can make a simple phone call to the clinic – the way your questions are answered will tell you a lot about the working staff.

Does the clinic look neat and sterile? Do you find the ambience comforting? These may seem like trivial matters, but the fact is, the right ambience can soothe you and lessen anxiety, which will have an impact on the final outcome of your treatment. Besides this, a sterile environment will substantially reduce the risk of an infectious complication.

Insurance coverage and hidden costs

A good vein clinic will be transparent in its rates and pricing. Ensure that you are aware of all costs of treatment upfront. If you require multiple sessions, ask for the cost of each session. Ensure that the payment for a treatment procedure is a single sum; if you are charged by the hour, rates can be unpredictable.

Treatment for symptomatic venous disorders is usually covered by health insurance. Look for a healthcare provider who will accept the insurance plan that you currently have, as paying for vein treatment out of pocket can be expensive. A good vein clinic will have personnel who can go through your healthcare plan and work with you so that your personal costs are kept to a minimum.

Information on vein disease

Spider and varicose veins can reflect underlying diseased vein conditions, such as venous insufficiency. A good vein clinic will help you understand what causes your vein disease, and how the treatment performed will help cure the vein condition. If you are armed with proper information, you will be better able to judge whether or not you require a certain kind of vein treatment. Choose a vein clinic that has handouts or charts that explain these conditions in detail, or, better yet, helps you understand vein diseases through their website.
