FOR YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENTYou should plan on 60-90 minutes for your first appointment. At this time, we will take your medical history, perform an ultrasound, complete the diagnosis and discuss a treatment plan thoroughly with you.
Your diagnosis may require only a conservative approach such as leg elevation and/or compression stockings. Compression stockings (a much higher compression than regular support hose) are important for either a conservative or surgical treatment method. We will measure you for the correct personalized fit. For your convenience we will order the stockings and have them shipped to you within 2 days.
Please bring a form of identification and your insurance or Medicare card with you. Once a treatment plan is established, we will obtain pre-certification from your insurance company if one is needed.
TESTIMONIALSAs a woman in my late 30's, I am not yet ready to accept some of the physical changes that come with aging. As an athlete and runner, I am not ready to slow down. About 5 years ago, I noticed some small bumps on the medial side of my left knee that appeared any time I was on my feet. As time went on the bumps became larger. I had also been competing in long distance and cycling races sometimes lasting 24-30 hours. After each race I had a little more edema in my lower left leg and ankle. I was also noticing that the varicose veins were spreading to the front of my shin and above my knee. This past spring I realized I was choosing capris instead of shorts because I was embarrassed of my ugly veins. I finally decided to get them checked out. I found Atlanta Vein Specialists on the internet on a Sunday afternoon and called the number assuming I'd get a recording. To my surprise, Dr. Mahadevan ansewered! He was very kind and explained he wants the best for his patients. Dr. M. was very patient during the consultation, answering all my questions and explaining in detail what my veins were not doing and what he could do to help me. I had four procedures and the results were amazing! At the last follow-up Dr. M. showed me photos of my ugly legs on the first visit. What a difference! The entire staff was wonderful. I was nervous the first time, but after such a pleasant experience, I actually looked forward to the rest of the procedures. I was also very apprehensive about the cost but they worked with me to make it affordable to me. It has been three months and I am so pleased with the results. I'm back to wearing shorts! I highly recommend Dr. Mahadevan and the folks at Atlanta Vein Specialists to anyone with vein problems. Thank You!
