Choosing the right doctor to handle your vascular and vein issues is an important decision. These days it seems everyone from podiatrists to cardiologists to radiologists are offering various treatments. As vascular doctors, we know we are the most qualified to treat the full spectrum of vascular and vein issues. It is our core focus and specialty—we do nothing else but treat the vessels of the vascular system.
When contemplating treatment, we believe there are 5 important questions to ask. An ethical well-trained doctor will welcome your questions and should answer YES to questions 1, 2 and 3, and NO to questions 4 and 5.
The 5 Key Questions to Ask Your Doctor
#1. Are you Board Certified in Vascular Surgery, Interventional Radiology or Interventional Cardiology?
#2. Do you have hospital privileges in one of the 3 specialties listed in question #1?
#3. Is your Vascular Lab (the place where the Doppler ultrasound of your legs is performed) certified by the IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission)?
#4. For my varicose veins, do you recommend that I have a 4, 5 or 6 separate laser ablations?
#5. For my spider veins, do you recommend that I have an ablation procedure?
