When beginning your treatment at Illinois Vein Specialists, it is important to schedule an initial consultation. During the initial consultation for varicose veins, there will be a few things that take place: a careful review of your medical or clinical history, a physical examination of your veins using a Doppler Duplex Ultrasound, and a discussion with you to answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment and/or follow ups, including insurance coverage and medical letters of necessity.  These steps will allow our certified staff to better asses your particular needs and inform you of the best option(s) for treating your varicose or spider veins.
