When you make an appointment, you may wonder, what will happen in my visit, how much will the visit cost, and does my insurance company cover the visits. Here is some information important before your visit.

Free counseling only

You will get a quick duplex ultrasound scanning of your legs to determine whether or not you have varicose veins. After a quick scan, our doctor will provide you counseling about the result of your ultrasound test and suggestions of the care plan for your legs.

Please bring your driver’s license and don’t drink coffee in the morning.

Visual cosmetic treatment for spider veins

You will get a free quick duplex ultrasound scanning of your legs for varicose veins. Our doctor will discuss the ultrasound result with you and decide whether only spider treatment is enough. If it is adequate for you to receive the spider injection, our doctor (not physician assistant or nurse practitioner) will do the spider vein injection for you. Because one session is usually not adequate, you may have to come back for more sessions.

Please call (570) 639-9220 for the cost.

Insurance companies consider spider/ thread veins as a cosmetic issue. Therefore the treatment is not covered.
