What to Expect on Your First Visit
During your initial consultation at Boulder Vein Center, you will first see one of our in-office ultrasound technicians (Registered Vascular Technician) who will map out and measure your veins. Following your ultrasound, you will meet with Dr. Richard Fox or Dr. Matthew Gawart, our vascular surgeons, and using the information gathered during the ultrasound, your vein doctor will determine if you are an eligible candidate for EVLT, Microphlebectomy or Sclerotherapy. In some cases, the surgeon will also recommend that you wear compression stockings, which are available for purchase in our office. Our Medical Assistants will be happy to measure and fit you for a pair. If you are an eligible candidate for a varicose vein or spider vein treatment, you will meet with the surgery scheduler and schedule a date and a time for your procedure that is convenient for you. This date will usually be about one month from your initial consultation to allow us enough time to contact your insurance company and obtain any necessary prior authorization. In addition, we will provide you with an insurance-specific estimate and a maximum figure for your out-of-pocket expenses for your procedure. The scheduler will review with you the pre/post-procedural instructions and answer any additional questions you may have.
