What can I expect at the first appointment?
Your medical history will be reviewed and your legs and abnormal veins examined. An ultrasound examination will be performed if necessary – and essentially everyone with varicose veins needs one. A treatment plan will then be described.
If you are being seen for simple spider veins, treatment may begin at that first visit if you let us know that is what you would like at the time you make your appointment.
Daniel L. Monahan, M.D. opened Vein Surgery and Treatment Center of Northern California in 2001. The name changed to Monahan Vein Clinic in 2011. He is board-certified in surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Treating vein disease is not something to learn in a weekend course. Dr. Monahan’s formal training included more experience in vein treatment than typical surgical training, and he carried this expertise into his practice.
