A Comprehensive Approach to Vein Care
Are you someone who is bothered by varicose veins or spider veins? For the larger or more serious vein problems, treatment begins with an ultrasound technique to evaluate the venous circulation of blood in the patient’s extremities. If a backflow of blood is found, it can be treated with a minimally invasive office procedure called Endovenous Laser Ablation. Smaller vein problems like spider veins also get expert attention. Most people think of spider veins (a milder version of varicose veins) are mostly a cosmetic concern, but they can still cause a lot of discomfort in your legs and can lead to more serious medical problems. Veins with cosmetic issues are treated with a procedure called Sclerotherapy, a treatment that closes and erases superficial veins.
At the Laser Vein Center, we provide the most comprehensive treatment for vein problems— big and small—all in one convenient location.
We Provide the Best Care for our Patients
Our staff is highly trained and friendly, giving patients the personal care they need. From the initial consultation to diagnosis and follow-up treatments, we tailor each patient’s care and treatment in order to meet his or her specific needs. Phone calls are answered by a receptionist and after the procedure, check-up calls are made by a nurse.
Unlike surgery centers or hospitals that treat dozens of patients per hour, and feel like they’re on an assembly line, we see only a few patients per hour, offering plenty of individual attention by our skilled and friendly staff. You don’t have to traverse long parking lots and hallways or go from one department to another to get the care and attention you need.
Our locations are convenient and discreet. No large building to navigate. Free convenient parking in front of the building. Warm comfortable atmosphere with terry robes and cloth shorts.
We Work with Insurance Companies to Save You Money
Maintaining the health of your venous system is important for maintaining your overall health. We are proud to be an in-network provider for all the local health insurers so we will be the most affordable to our patient.
In the interest of giving our patients the best value, we never charge facility fees, radiologist fees, or anesthesia fees. These procedures are part of your treatment, and they shouldn’t cost extra. These fees charged by other providers can nearly double the cost of a procedure.
In order to maximize your insurance benefits, our office expert works hand-in-hand with the insurance companies.
We also offer cash/financing options in case you need additional help. Financing is available through CareCredit.

We are an in-network provider for all the major insurance plans. We also have the lowest contracted rates. This means quite a bit to patients with high deductible health insurance plans. The contracted rates can be a fraction of the price of hospital-owned vein centers. The laser vein center is private and does not add facility fees and other significant costs to the treatment. The total cost for the treatment is often a fraction of the cost of hospital-employed vein centers, sometimes as low as one-tenth the cost. It is not that cost is so low, rather the hospital systems have huge administrative burdens so their cost is so much higher. To a patient with a high deductible that is often paying a significant portion of the medical expense, the difference can run into the thousands of dollars.
