Deciding to have any medical procedure, even treatment as quick and painless as varicose vein removal, can be intimidating. Those of us without medical training are often unsure of which doctor to choose and which questions to ask. We worry that we may be missing important information that will cause problems down the road. We worry about the risks and the success rate and the costs.
Relieving Your Worries
Starting with your first phone call, the staff of the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center will do our best to put you at ease. Varicose veins can be painful and unsightly, leading to serious concern, but they are treatable. Patient comfort and a positive experience are high priorities for us, and we understand that planning a treatment can be stressful and worrisome. We will be sensitive to your feelings and your needs from the beginning to the end, guaranteed.
In your initial consultation, your Oklahoma vein treatment doctor Dr. Pedulla will answer any and all of your questions in a way you can understand. Other surgeons may see you as a patient or a customer, but we see you as a whole person who deserves to be treated with respect and to be properly informed. This means that we will not try to confuse you with medical jargon or gloss over the risks of your procedure, however minimal they may be. We believe that all our patients deserve honest and straightforward information.
Discussing Your Options
While Dr. Pedulla certainly has the knowledge and experience to be called an expert in the field of vein treatment, he understands that the decision about your vein treatment procedure is yours. Dr. Pedulla will maintain open communication with you about the nature of your vein problems and his recommendations for treatment. However, unlike some surgeons, Dr. Pedulla will never pressure or prod you into choosing a procedure that you do not want.
Instead, Dr. Pedulla will explain each vein treatment option and how it works in detail. He will also give you an honest and informed assessment of the risks and benefits of each treatment option. Because the Oklahoma Vein and Endovascular Center specializes in vein treatments that are minimally invasive, nearly all of our vein treatment procedures involve very low risks of complications or side effects and a very strong probability of success. Nonetheless, you deserve to be educated about any and all risks, even minor ones.
