A vascular doctor is a highly-trained medical professional who focuses on helping individuals who are dealing with all types of vascular malfunctions and diseases. There are many reasons why you may visit our vascular doctor. These range from spider veins to varicose veins to so much more. Vascular doctors and vascular specialists are the only medical professionals who can provide the wide range of vascular care an individual dealing with vascular disease will need.
Many people are recommended by their primary physician to visit our vascular doctor. During a physical, the doctor may note some things in their vascular health that needs to be closely examined.
When the time comes for you to have a visit with our vascular specialist, we recommend that you are open and honest about your health, as well as your goals for your treatment. The better prepared you are for your visit, the easier it’s going to be for us to provide you with adequate care. It’s important for you to have any information associated with your vascular health available. This includes any past tests you had or any procedures you’ve had connected to your vascular health. We will be able to evaluate this information and use that information in conjunction with our own tests to prepare a plan to help treat your vascular disease.
Some of the things to focus on include the length of time you have been dealing with the symptoms. Where do you feel the symptoms? How severe do the symptoms seem? Our vascular doctor may ask you all of these questions and more. If you’ve had blood tests recently, CT scans, MRI examinations, or any other type of tests, please let us know about it. Additionally, bring a list of medications that you are taking for any health conditions. The more we know, the better.
During the initial consultation, our vascular doctor is going to examine you. There may be some non-invasive lab tests using ultrasound to determine if there’s a blockage in your veins.
Your vascular health is extremely important to us at Canada Vein Clinics. Remember, your veins and your arteries are what your body uses to transmit nutrients, as well as oxygen, to your blood.
