What doctor do you see for varicose veins?
The doctor most people approach with all their medical problems is a general practitioner, and you could see why. General practitioners are trained to assess and diagnose virtually any disease and they know the right person to refer you to if treatment of a condition is beyond their knowledge.
Well, going to your PCP for varicose veins is very okay, but you don’t really have to schedule all those appointments because you are eventually going to be referred to a vein specialist. Vein diseases are among those few diseases you can detect without clinical diagnosis. What’s more, most of them can only be treated by specialist doctors, so it would be wise to schedule just that one trip to a vein specialist.
