Vascular and Interventional Radiologists are experts in venous disease and minimally invasive image guided procedures (such as superficial varicose vein ablation procedures). Do not trust your veins to a non-vascular or non-surgical specialist. Only trust your vein care to a surgical sub-specialty such as Vascular and Interventional Radiology, which is recognized by the American Society of Medical boards as an actual sub-specialty.

Board-Certified imaging specialist

Dr. Isadore is board certified by the American College of Radiology, making him an expert in conducting and interpreting vascular ultrasound imaging.

Important Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Vein Doctor

1. Does the doctor treat only veins?

Ideally, you want a doctor who specializes in vein treatments exclusively. Many different types of doctors dabble in vein treatment and may only perform a few vein procedures per month. Here you run the risk of exposing yourself to someone whose experience is limited and suboptimal. Oceana Vein Specialists are a dedicated vein treatment center that focuses strictly on venous disease.

2. Where are the procedures performed?

Oceana Vein Specialists perform all of our procedures within our office, in our state of the art ocean view procedure suites. There is no need to go to a busy, stress inducing hospital to receive treatment for your leg veins.

3. Is the doctor trained in ultrasound?

Ultrasound evaluation is a critical step used to determine the underlying source of your vein problem.  Ultrasound allows the doctor to see how the vein is functioning and to diagnose any problems with blood flow within the vein. Some physicians only take a few weekend courses to learn ultrasound techniques, while others have years of extensive imaging/ultrasound training, we recommend you pick a vein specialist that has dedicated residency and fellowship training in performing and interpreting ultrasound examinations. Here at Oceana Vein Specialists, Dr. Isadore received dedicated residency and fellowship training to learn these ultrasound imaging techniques and has interpreted and performed several thousands of ultrasound examinations. Our Vascular Ultrasound Technicians have received extensive ultrasound training, as well as advanced certification in vascular imaging.

Interventional Radiologists receive extensive ultrasound training (4 year Diagnostic Radiology Residency and 1 year Interventional Radiology Fellowship) and are held to the highest national standards through the American Board of Radiology. Many doctors not formally trained in ultrasound get their Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) certification because their medical training did not include adequate ultrasound training.

4. Where are the diagnostic Ultrasounds performed?

Ultrasound provides the interventional radiologist with a clear picture of what’s happening with the veins. It is important that the vein center perform all of their own ultrasound exams within the office, as to facilitate procedure planning. Some doctors that just dabble in vein care will out-source the ultrasound exam and have them performed by an outside radiology department or outside vascular lab, which creates a disconnect in the treatment process. Here at Oceana Vein Specialists, all of the Ultrasound exams are performed by our staff and vein specialists within our office, scheduled at your convenience.

5. What type of anesthesia is used?

Oceana Vein Specialists comfortably perform all of our procedures in the office with a local anesthetic (a small injection at the procedure site to numb the area). IV sedation or general anesthesia, which requires extensive patient monitoring in a hospital setting, are not used at Oceana Vein Specialists. All of our procedures are well tolerated using local anesthesia, which is the gold standard for these types of procedures.

6. Is the staff experienced with dealing with insurance companies for claims specific to vein disease?

Vein disease is a medical condition and most private insurance, Medicare and Medi-Cal will cover the cost of most vein treatments, if claims are handled properly by the office staff. It is important to make sure the office staff is knowledgeable and experienced in these types of claims. Oceana Vein Specialists dedicated their entire practice to the management of venous disease and are experts in receiving authorization and payments from insurance companies.
