What to expect during the consultation for leg veins

_DSC0079_SmallWhen you come to California Vein Specialists for a vein consultation, you will be greeted by our front office staff that will assist you in registering and filling out paperwork. If you prefer to fill out the paperwork in advance, you can download the New Patient Forms from our website.

Be sure to bring your medical insurance card with you so that we can check your insurance coverage. We are in network for most major medical PPO plans.

Once in the examination suite, you can change into a pair of disposable shorts so Dr. Leary can fully examine your legs. The exam will include a complete history and venous exam. Some insurance companies require a complete work-up. We may also digitally photograph your legs.

Dr. Leary prefers his patients have a noninvasive duplex ultrasound to help him determine what the best possible treatment is for you. The ultrasound is painless, using sound waves to map the blood flow in the leg veins. The Ultrasound gives Dr. Leary a detailed view of any problems in your veins, and allows him to see the exact veins which need to be treated. Dr. Leary will go over the results of the ultrasound with you and explain all of the findings. He will also answer any questions you may have. He will then go over your individual treatment plan specific to your diagnosis.

Our office is extremely caring and professional. If you have any additional questions after your first visit, please give us a call and we will be glad to assist you. We may contact you in the future to check on your progress and see if there is anything else we can do to help you achieve great results.
