If you have varicose veins or spider veins the first step in pursuing treatments is a thorough assessment and examination by a skilled and trained phlebologist or vein specialist. Too many people have their varicose veins and spider veins treated without a thorough assessment and examination. This may lead to ineffective treatment of your varicose veins or spider veins and even complications. When having our veins assessed for the first time, make sure your physician or health care professional takes a detailed medical history. Such a history should involve an understanding of your vein problem, varicose or spider vein symptoms, previous vein treatment history, medical conditions, medications, allergies, and surgeries. A detailed examination must be done as well. Finally, as part of a comprehensive vein exam, an ultrasound of your veins should be completed if deemed necessary by your physician. At Concept Medical in Ottawa, we specialize in varicose vein and spider vein assessment and treatments.
