What to Expect From Your Vein Consultation

When you come in for your first visit with our New York City vein doctor, it's a good idea to prepare a list of questions. We set aside ample time to make sure that we can answer all of your concerns thoroughly.

The vein doctor will focus on your vein symptoms and goals for treatment. If medically indicated, the vein doctor may request a venous ultrasound. This is done on-site and is the best way to identify the root cause of spider and varicose vein symptoms.

Before you leave, the vein doctor will individualize a treatment plan. We will address both your medical and cosmetic concerns. Any medically necessary procedures will be discussed and submitted to insurance for approval.

Vein Treatments Offered


Renowned as a widely recognized and minimally invasive procedure, sclerotherapy involves the precise injection of a specialized solution directly into the affected veins. Over time, this specialized solution gradually shrinks the veins, resulting in their fading and significantly reducing the visibility of varicose and spider veins.

Vein Ablation

Our vein ablation procedures utilize advanced techniques such as radiofrequency and laser to offer a non-surgical solution for treating varicose veins. By applying controlled thermal energy, we effectively close off the affected veins, promoting improved blood flow and enhancing the overall appearance of your legs. 

Spider Veins / Varicose Veins

Experience our state-of-the-art treatments that specifically target spider veins and varicose veins, prioritizing both safety and effectiveness. With a comprehensive approach to vein treatment, we provide a diverse range of options, including VenaSeal, ClariVein, microphlebectomy, radiofrequency and laser vein ablation, and sclerotherapy.

Pioneering Advanced Techniques

Dr. Rios-Datta helped pioneer advanced techniques for sclerotherapy, which quickly turned spider vein treatments into pain-free, minimally invasive outpatient procedures in 2000. Dr. Rios-Datta is board certified in internal medicine, a member of the American College of Phlebology, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.

Important Questions a Vein Clinic Should Answer 

Finding the right vein clinic is not simple when seeking treatment for spider and varicose veins. Take the time to explore your options and find someone compatible with your care. There are 6 questions we believe every patient should have answered before vein treatment.

Who Is The Vein Specialist?

A vein specialist should always be board-certified in a vascular specialty (cardiology, vascular medicine, or vascular surgery). Too often, we see vein clinics staffed by non-vascular physicians, in which case they might lack the experience for spider and varicose vein treatment.

What Vein Treatments Are Offered?

Vein treatment has become far more simplified and easier on patients. Most treatments can be performed in the office without surgical incisions or sedation. Effective treatments include vein ablation, sclerotherapy, and phlebectomy.

How is Vein Disease Evaluated?

The presence of spider and varicose veins suggests vein disease and can include symptoms such as leg cramps, restless legs, and/or swelling are further indications. Diagnosing vein disease can only be made with a diagnostic ultrasound to look at the size and function of leg veins.

Are Spider Veins Treated Here?

Not all vein doctors treat spider veins. This is often by choice, as some vein doctors add vein ablation to their medical clinics (cardiology, pain management, dermatology).  These offices focus only on higher-paying procedures and avoid more time-consuming spider vein treatments. A dedicated vein clinic will provide comprehensive care with honest treatment expectations.

Does Insurance Cover Vein Treatments?

Unless you have only cosmetic concerns, you are going to want to learn about your insurance coverage. This includes understanding your co-insurance for treatment with medically recommended procedures. Most procedures are covered; a dedicated insurance specialist can provide worry-free authorizations.

The Vein Specialist Centers are a network of dedicated vein clinics in New Jersey and New York.   Our vein specialists are board-certifed experts in spider and varicose vein treatment providing comprehesnive vein care under one roof.  Using cutting-edge therapies, we offer our patients minimally-invasive solutions for spider and varicose veins.  To schedule your consultation online or call us at 609-257-2095 to find your nearest clinic.

What is a Vein Clinic?

A vein clinic is a specialized center for the diagnosis and treatment of vein conditions, including spider veins and varicose veins. Historically, patients suffering from vein disease were treated in the hospital with ligation and stripping ( removal ) of the unhealthy vein. Nowadays, modern medicine has allowed for the treatment of varicose veins within specialty centers like vein clinics using minimally invasive procedures.
