Insurance covers varicose veins including an initial visit, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up.
Melinda L. Aquino MD is a top vein doctor who treats the full spectrum of venous insufficiency disorders from varicose veins and spider veins to severe venous stasis disease. Treatment always starts with a full evaluation and then utilizes the latest minimally invasive techniques, as well as surgery, when necessary. We diagnose and treat most vein conditions in the office where comfort and convenience is paramount.
