Question: Should my primary physician or dermatologist treat my veins?
Answer: In the last several years, the practice of vein treatment has become a special area of expertise. Many types of physicians treat spider veins and even larger varicose veins as an additional service to their existing practices. This often leads to incomplete or even disastrous results.
Medical science has evolved into many special areas that require additional training and advanced credentialing. Phlebology has recently been recognized as a board-certified specialty. No longer should physicians dabble in this field as a hobby or look to sclerotherapy simply as a source of additional income.
