We understand that sometimes individuals have reservations about whether a procedure is really necessary or will result in the outcome they expect or are being told. They is generally due to not enough time being spent on educating the individual on their condition, why it happens and what can be done about it beyond just a procedure. Not everyone who we evaluate needs or desires an intervention. Some are very relieved to learn that there are effective medical treatment options or appreciate information regarding things they can do, or should avoid, to limit the extent of symptoms or progression. In additional, realistic expectations need to be set by the vein specialist and understood by the person seeking care.
