What To Look For In A Vein Specialist

Dr. Atur Kasha is a skilled general surgeon who is board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of A vein specialist is a healthcare provider who has dedicated their career to understanding, diagnosing and treating vein problems. Just like you would prefer a cake baked by a pastry chef to that made by an ordinary chef, it is understandable that you would want your varicose veins to be treated by a vein specialist and not a general doctor.

That said, not all vein specialists have what it takes to successfully and safely do away with that unsightly patch on your leg.

Here is what to look for in a vein specialist:


The first filter in your search for a vein specialist should be level of education and certification. Your vein specialist must provide proof of certification by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine and should be board-certified in vascular surgery or interventional radiology.

Interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons are the only specialists who have undergone advanced training in venous disorders, which is a key qualification in treatment of both common and rare vein conditions.

Look into the specialist’s experience and past encounters with patients. Check the qualifications of their staff members and search their names in review sites to see what past and current clients think of them.

Customer service

While it’s paramount to be treated by a qualified and experienced doctor who goes about his trade professionally, it’s also important that you find someone who is compassionate and genuinely values your well-being.

Your physician should listen to you and try to incorporate some of your interests in your treatment. They should be someone you’d be comfortable being around, calling to ask questions and discussing private aspects of your health with.

They should be prompt with appointments and be willing to adjust their regimen to fit your schedule. A good vein specialist should be someone who puts your comfort and well-being above profit.

Level of technology

Spider vein and varicose vein treatment has come a long away over the past couple of decades. Diagnosis has particularly seen massive advancement with the latest ultrasound machines providing unprecedented accuracy in detecting specific vein problems.

Find a vein center that has a skilled team capable of using state-of-the-art ultrasound, radiofrequency and laser technology in diagnosis and treatment of vein diseases.

Check their website

Before settling for a vein specialist and scheduling an appointment, be sure to visit their website to see the information provided there.

A good specialist should display on their website comprehensive information about the services provided at their vein center.

The website should introduce the vein specialist and the staff and provide a superficial breakdown of procedures for different vein conditions to help you get a rough idea of their qualification and what to expect.
