Does vein disease affect women and men equally?

What happens during a physician consultation?

The results of these ultrasound exams are combined with the information from a thorough physical exam and medical history to give the physician a complete picture of the venous system as a whole and the patient a clear understanding of their condition. This allows a treatment plan tailored to the unique needs of each patient. Ultrasound is also used throughout the treatment process to assess the success of each procedure and the patient’s response to treatment.
