How to Get Diagnosed with Vein Disease

  1. Initial Consultation

    Call Mequon Vein to schedule an initial consultation. You’ll receive a free consultation with a diagnosis from our on-staff physician, Dr. Sabatino. The consultation lasts 45 minutes.

  2. Medical History Discussion

    Discussing medical history is crucial during a vein diagnosis. Your medical history provides context for the underlying factors contributing to vein issues. Medical history offers insights into genetic predispositions, past medical conditions, surgeries and medication use, all of which can impact vein health. Certain conditions like deep vein thrombosis, previous injuries or surgeries can increase the risk of vein problems. Lifestyle factors, such as job requirements and physical activity levels, also play a role.

  3. Physical Examination

    A physical examination provides first-hand visual and tactile information about the condition of your veins. Through this examination, we’ll assess the appearance, size and location of veins, identify abnormalities, and gauge the extent of any issues like varicose veins or spider veins. Veins palpate for tenderness, swelling or changes in texture, which provides valuable diagnostic clues. Our direct assessment guides the diagnostic process, determines the appropriate diagnostic tests and establishes a baseline for tracking changes over time.

  4. Diagnosis

    Based on your symptoms and medical history, you’ll receive a diagnosis from our on-staff physician, Dr. Sabatino. At the end of your free, 45 minute consultation, you will be presented with the best treatment plan for your condition. We offer several methods of treatment depending on your diagnosis.

Ultrasound Doppler Imaging for Vein Diagnosis

Ultrasound is a widely used diagnostic imaging technique and is highly effective in diagnosing vein diseases by providing detailed and real-time visualization of the veins and blood flow. Our physicians utilize this technology when necessary for a proper diagnosis. Ultrasound uses safe sound waves emitted by a transducer placed on the skin. This real-time imaging reveals vein structure, blood flow patterns and valve function. Ultrasound detects conditions like varicose veins, thrombosis and venous reflux.

Varicose Vein Diagnosis

When diagnosing varicose veins, our physicians look for bulging, twisted veins that appear bluish or dark purple. Symptoms like pain, swelling and heaviness in the legs, especially after prolonged standing or sitting, are considered. Skin changes, tenderness and the presence of ulcers around the affected veins are also noted. Physical examination and Doppler ultrasound aid in confirming the diagnosis and guiding treatment decisions.

Spider Vein Diagnosis

Spider vein diagnosis involves examining small, dilated blood vessels near the skin’s surface, typically appearing as red, blue or purple lines in a web-like pattern. They commonly emerge on the legs, thighs and face. Diagnostic tools like ultrasound may be used to confirm their presence and severity.

The Dangers of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a serious condition where blood clots form in deep veins, often in the legs. If a clot breaks loose and travels to the lungs, it can cause a pulmonary embolism, a potentially life-threatening complication. DVT is detected through symptoms like leg pain, swelling and redness, but diagnosis is confirmed using tests like ultrasound to visualize blood flow and clot presence. During your appointment, we’ll evaluate your symptoms and discuss risk factors that increase your candidacy.
