F.A.Q.

My legs look veiny and I don’t like it. How do I pick a doctor?

Look for an experienced surgeon and a practice where you feel comfortable. I practiced heart surgery for over three decades before specializing in the treatment of veins. Our staff is friendly and we like to think it is a welcoming environment. One of the reasons we offer a free evaluation screening appointment for spider veins is so that you get a chance to see what your situation is and see how you like it here at no risk..

 

 

 Is vein surgery expensive?

Most of the procedures we conduct are covered by typical medical insurance programs.

 

 

Are the procedures painful?

All procedures are done with local anesthetic, with the patient awake. Discomfort is minimal.

 

 

 What is the typical recovery time?

The procedures are done in our offices and the patient walks in and walks out. Most patients return to work that day or the next day.

 

Are vein problems purely cosmetic?

No. Most are medical conditions. With insurance covering most procedures, there is no reason to endure leg pain or not like the way your legs look.
