The initial consultation is a comprehensive exam of the veins in your leg performed to determine what treatment, if any, is appropriate for you. It is mandatory for any patient who has symptoms and is a candidate for varicose vein procedures to have this, whether or not they have had a free vein screening.
At this comprehensive venous workup, you will fill out history forms. Then, you will have your leg veins checked with ultrasound, including the problematic varicose veins which will be mapped. You will have an in-depth discussion with one of our physicians or physician assistants to explain the background of varicose veins, the details of your ultrasound, your treatment options, and the risks, benefits, and alternatives of treatment. You will be given time to ask any questions.
This appointment is billed to your insurance as any other specialty care would be, and is subject to your copay and/or deductible. You will be billed for both a consultation and an ultrasound. If you would like an estimate of charges, please let our staff know.
