5 Important Questions You Should Ask Your Vein Doctor

At The Cardiovascular Care Group and Vein Institute of NJ we care about education and transparency. It has been a proud tradition of ours since our founding in 1963, to ensure sound medical advice and treatments as well as a new outlook on life.

Choosing the right doctor to handle your vein and vascular 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 most qualified to treat the full spectrum of vein and vascular 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, but NO to 4 and 5.

Five Questions to Ask Your Vein Doctor

#1. Are you Board Certified in Vascular Surgery, Interventional Radiology, Interventional Cardiology?

#2. Do you have hospital privileges in one of the three 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. Do you recommend that I have 4, 5, or 6 separate LASER vein ablations on my varicose veins?

#5. Do you recommend that I have an ablation procedure for my spider veins?

If your doctor does not respond appropriately to these questions, you need a second opinion.
