How do I find the best vein removal doctor?

General Practitioner

An excellent place to start your search would be your General Practitioner, they are trusted gatekeepers for specialists practising in all areas of medicine.

Your GP is familiar with your medical history, and may also have several patients with first-hand experience with specific specialists, clinics and hospitals.

Past Patients

It is also common to talk with other patients who can give you a perspective of not only the specialist and his or her ability but also the pre-operative and post-operative care offered.

Google Search

Dr Google is also a valuable resource. Not only for information about anatomy and procedure details, but also when researching a Doctor’s experience and sub-specialty focus.

It is important to understand that your specialist has the focus, experience and current training to resolve your specific problem.

Clinical Outcomes

All specialists are required to participate in a regular peer reviewed audit of the clinical results of their surgery such as the rate of infection and other complications.  Patients are increasingly interested in this information and we can make this available to you so that you can make an informed choice.

Reviews

More and more patients are sharing their experiences on platforms such as Google Reviews and Facebook. While not definitive, they can add some perspective on a particular clinic and past patients’ satisfaction.

Here is a checklist that covers the key points in selecting the Vein Removal Doctor. Does your specialist offer:

  1. Suitable qualifications and training in specific procedures being considered

  2. Experience with hundreds or thousands of successful procedures

  4. Peer recognition or third party accreditation from a “Centre of Excellence”

Feel Comfortable

Your Doctor should take the time to listen to you and clear any doubts that you might have.

Ideally your Vein Treatment should be performed at a facility that is a recognised “Centre of Excellence” which would ensure that

  1. the facility has performed a good level of procedures in the last year with excellent outcomes

  2. the staff have undergone training specific to Vein Removal Procedures, and

  3. there is a patient coordinator who is your first point of contact from start to finish throughout your recovery journey.
