You’ve decided you can’t live with your vein problems any longer. You understand your treatment options, and now it’s time to decide where to seek treatment. This blog, as wells as the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC), tells you everything you need to know about choosing the right vein clinic for you.
What Factors Should You Consider When Choosing a Vein Clinic?
When deciding to seek treatment for your varicose veins, consider the following factors explained by the IAC:
- The training and experience of the vein specialist performing the procedure.
- The type of equipment used and the quality assessment metrics each facility is required to measure.
IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indicator of consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous improvement. An IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to venous disorders, which include physicians, physician extenders, nurses and ultrasound technologists.
