After completing the Self-Assessment, the first step in finding personalized treatment is locating the initial source of the problem. In order to do that you will need to make an appointment with one of our expertly trained physicians. Once you have done that you will need to do the following:
Fill out patient forms which we conveniently have on our site.
Have a patient screening at one of our convenient offices.
During your initial visit, a Complimentary Visual Screening completed by one of our CVD vein specialists will examine areas of concern. This initial screening focuses on your family and vascular history, leg and vein symptoms, and what can be identified as any affected areas. This is an easy and quick 10-15 minute appointment.
What do I wear to my initial appointment?
In order to visualize your legs, please come appropriately dressed in a pair of shorts or bring a pair of shorts to change into for your appointment. If clinical assessment determines further diagnostic testing is needed, an additional appointment will be scheduled.
Have an Ultrasound done by an Ultrasound Sonographer.
Depending on your case, a 30-45 minute Duplex Ultrasound Scan might be necessary with an Ultrasound Sonographer. The Ultrasound will provide visualization needed to identify any diseased or damaged veins, blood clots and artery blockages. With this diagnostic capability, CVD can pinpoint the exact cause of your vein related concerns.
Have your Physician review all the information and determine what’s next.
Lastly, our Board Certified Physicians will review the ultrasound findings and customize a treatment plan for each individual patient. During this doctor visit, you’ll discuss your diagnosis, treatment options, procedures and post-procedure instructions if applicable. One of our nurses or trained CVD vein specialists can also walk you through the treatment plan, details of cost, insurance plans or answer any questions.
