At the beginning of a new year often we set goals for ourselves. We want to become a better version of who we are. This is the perfect time of year to take your health into your hands. IVC would like to help you reach that goal with our free varicose vein screenings.
Free Varicose Vein Screening Events
IVC will host 3 special varicose vein screenings this year. Screening events are held for you to see if seeking treatment for varicose veins is right for you. At these screening events, we invite you to come to our office and have an ultrasound. This is a quick 5-minute ultrasound that helps determine if varicose veins are present. After the ultrasound, a doctor or nurse practitioner will meet with you to discuss the ultrasound with you as well as answer any questions you may have about varicose veins. After your meeting, we will have insurance specialists on hand that can answer questions about insurance coverage and any requirements the insurance may have you meet before treatment. If you do not have insurance, do not worry, the insurance specialist can go over self-pay options with you. Another benefit of the free screen events is we have a medical compression sock representative on hand. The representative can answer questions about compression socks for you. Today, there are many options in compression socks and the representative can make sure they get the correct size and the best style to suit your needs.
Vein Screenings – Informative and Fun!
Not only are these screening events helpful in answering questions, they are also fun! We have heard from many of our patients that they enjoy these events. These events are filled with music, food, and gifts. Please join us for one of our events this year.
This year’s screening events are scheduled for:
- Saturday February 2, 2019
- Saturday May 11, 2019
- Saturday September 7, 2019
Screening Options for Your Schedule
If Saturdays do not work for you, do not worry! The IVC staff recognize that you have a busy life and sometimes it is hard to carve some time out. Therefore, we proudly offer free screenings during our regular work week as well. Do not hesitate to call and schedule a screening at your convenience and we would be happy to accommodate you.
Set that goal you have been putting off and take your health back! Come and see us sometime this year.
