Vein Clinic Patient Expectations
The atmosphere and treatment approach of Nu Vela Laser and Vein Center are what every patient should expect of a sophisticated vein care center and medical spa. No pressure, no drama, no attitude – just respectful, top-notch care and service. The facility is elegant, comfortable, spotless, and our procedures are performed in a perfect sterile environment in an effort to reduce the risk of infection.
Aging, the environment and other circumstances may have taken a toll on your appearance and the health of your venous system. Dr. Dishakjian can help turn back the hands of time with advanced, innovative techniques coupled with his personal, caring approach to patient care. The vein center uses only the latest, proven, technology-driven equipment, such as the Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT), Venefit (former Vnus) Radiofrequency systems, and cutting-edge lasers, designed to safely and effectively achieve the results you expect. Dr Dishakjian personally performs all patient consultations for all medical procedures.
During your consultation, Dr. Dishakjian will first and foremost listen to your concerns, expectations, desires and needs. After an appropriate examination and necessary testing (when indicated), he will recommend a treatment plan. Discussion will be honest, straightforward, transparent, courteous and respectful, and will be based on a well informed, experienced medical approach. Cosmetic and vein treatment options will be offered based upon your individual situation to keep you safe, while providing you with options for the best possible outcome.
Your initial consultation will include:
- Review of your medications, medical and surgical history and past cosmetic treatments.
- Discussion of why you want the procedure, your expectations and desired outcome.
- An honest and detailed discussion of a vein treatment plan that is specifically tailored to meet your needs and expectations.
- Review numerous ‘before and after’ pictures.
- Review payment plans and insurance coverage (only for varicose vein treatment).
- Instructions on how to prepare yourself for the indicated treatment.
At the end of your consultation, you will feel well informed and respected and an appointment will be scheduled, if desired.
On the day of the treatment; on the other hand, and before undergoing a procedure, our patients will be asked to sign our HIPAA Authorization form indicating that they have read and agree with the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules included in our website. Patients will also fill out and sign our Patient Consent form.
Note that consultations with the doctor are free with the purchase of any service. We charge a nominal refundable consultation fee for the first office visit only. This fee is fully credited towards a subsequently purchased service. Note also that free consultation does not include the diagnostic venous Ultrasound test that is often a requirement for the proper diagnosis of varicose vein disease and the identification of the source venous reflux. However, 75% of the ultrasound fee is also credited back to the patient towards the future cost of a varicose vein treatment; not sclerotherapy injections.
