Do you have some less-than-attractive varicose veins or spider veins that you’d like to have removed? Do you have painful leg veins that make your legs feel like they’re made of concrete after a long day? Choosing a physician to treat your vein condition is not always an easy decision. I always tell my patients that it’s important to educate yourself about your particular vein condition, the potential treatment options available, and things you should know when choosing a vein clinic for treatment.
Following are some tips that I provide to patients when they come to my Kansas City vein clinic for a free consultation:
1. Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Questions
When discussing potential treatment options with your physician, don’t be afraid to ask any and all questions you may have. There are no stupid questions. If you are afraid to ask questions than the doctor at that particular Kansas City vein clinic is likely not for you. Like any relationship, it’s important to be comfortable on a personal level with the physician you choose to conduct your vein procedure.
