What to expect at your initial evaluation
Although your initial evaluation will vary depending on the vein specialist you see, you can generally expect it to consist of a review of your medical history, a physical examination of your legs, and a discussion about your treatment options.
Reviewing your medical history is a key component of your vein evaluation since vein disease is typically hereditary. You will be asked about the vein issues you are experiencing, and may be asked about your family’s health history as well. A vein specialist will conduct an examination of your legs, and from there can decide if further testing is necessary.
After the examination, potential treatment will be discussed so that a treatment plan can be developed based on findings from the evaluation. Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have, whether it be about your condition, treatment options, or costs.
