Why see a vein specialist to treat your varicose or spider veins?

If problematic veins are making you uncomfortable, it’s best to consult with someone who can diagnose the cause, make recommendations and treat them. But where should you turn to for help?

Options can seem overwhelming

When you start to research your options, you’ll quickly find that a variety of health professionals promote vein treatment as part of their services offered. There are several reasons why you’ll want to seek out an experienced vein specialist.

Frequency and focus matter

Different types of physicians and surgeons are trained in vein procedures and qualified to treat you — but unless they’re a vein specialist, they’re likely not doing so on a frequent basis. Even for physicians who do diagnose and treat vein issues regularly, it’s not necessarily their singular focus. In most cases, vein specialists and their support staff have extensive training and experience in this particular field — and they’re able to stay current with the latest medical advances without having to spread themselves thin across other areas.

Convenience of in-house diagnostics

Vein specialist practices often have diagnostic tools such as ultrasound equipment on-site, with technicians who have significant experience operating the screening apparatus specifically on veins. They may even be able to perform the screening during your initial consultation, saving you time. Other health professionals might see you in their office but have to refer you to a hospital or freestanding diagnostic center for tests — and that means more time and travel for you.

Less confusion and possibly lower costs

While costs for tests and treatment procedures vary widely, as a general rule of thumb, they will be higher in hospital settings. And depending on the practice, you might get billed separately for services provided by multiple professionals in different locations. Billing through a vein specialist practice tends to be simpler.
