What To Consider When Picking A Vein Center
Luckily, there are a few key signs to look for on a vein center’s website to help you determine if they are a legitimate, professional vein care center. Here are some of the most common:
False Significance Credentialing
Many kinds of doctors all over the country deliver vein treatment. However, there is only one accredited Phlebology fellowship in the US, and it is located in New York City at NYU. This means that if your doctor states that they are part of any Phlebology Fellowship in Colorado, for example, it is a non-accredited, unrecognized fellowship.
This board-certification is only the first step. When researching your physician, what you’ll want to look for is a combination of high-level surgical skillset and extensive experience in vein care, needed to make a vein specialist.
Who Is Offered An Ultrasound?
There are only a limited number of conditions where an ultrasound screening is needed. Therefore, when picking a vein care center, you want to make sure that they are not offering screenings too liberally. Generally, asymptomatic patients looking for spider vein removal usually don’t need an ultrasound screening.
Furthermore, when you see a facility offering a “free venous screening”, if this includes Medicare, Medicaid, or other federal or state health care beneficiaries, know that this is not a legitimate care facility, as this is illegal.
Know Who is Actually Treating You
On the United Vein Centers website, you can view the lead physician at each of our locations across the US. Here, you will be able to learn about each of our doctor’s extensive experience and educational background.
Some vein centers, however, use a “bait and switch” approach, giving you a standard profile for a doctor who is seemingly meant to be performing your procedure at any number of facilities across the country. This likely indicates that the physician you will actually be seeing will be an Interventional Radiologist, Family Practice Physician, or even a Physician’s Assistant, instead of the vein specialist you were promised.
