Chronic venous insufficiency is a serious, complex condition that does not heal on its own or get better over time. The earlier a vein disease is diagnosed and treated, the less likely a patient will experience serious complications in the future. To determine whether or not a patient has a venous disease such as spider veins or varicose veins, the vein specialists at Palm Vein Center administer a comprehensive patient evaluation to review health history, physical condition, and current vein-related symptoms.
This initial evaluation allows the specialist(s) to determine whether or not the patient’s symptoms are in line with common chronic venous insufficiencies. It’s important to note there are several symptoms of venous disease that may be more severe than others.
