#1. Is the vein center close to my home or place of work?
The most important question to ask yourself is regarding the vein center’s proximity to your home or place of work. Minimally invasive vein treatments are often called “lunchtime” procedures because patients seek treatment during their lunch break and resume work immediately after. As such, vein treatments are incredibly convenient, and you don’t need to shuffle your schedule around too much. But your vein treatment will only be convenient if the vein center in LI is accessible to you.

#2. What do the vein center’s previous patients say? Do they have a good track record?
You must also consider if the vein center has a good track record and success rate. The best way to gauge a vein center’s track record is through their online reviews and ratings. Patients generally leave reviews on platforms like Google, Facebook, and RealSelf, and these individual testimonials add up to provide a holistic image of the vein center’s success rate and vein care standards. Furthermore, you can trust that patient reviews are completely unbiased.
The Spider Vein and Varicose Vein Center, LI, is one of the most reputable vein centers on the island, as evidenced by their unanimously flawless reviews. They have 5-star ratings and rave reviews from patients on Google, Facebook, and RealSelf. One of their recent patients left this glowing review:
“So happy I found VIP Medical Group. From the moment I walked in, the entire staff was welcoming and friendly! There is no waiting, which is a plus! Dr. Saraf did the procedure on my legs. He is so friendly and professional. He explained everything he was doing and put me at ease. The procedure was painless. Dr. Saraf will call or text you after your procedure to check up on how you are doing. Now that’s sweet! I also had the opportunity to meet Dr. Novak. She is also wonderful and welcoming. I’m so happy with the results. My legs feel and look great! I would highly recommend going to VIP for treatment for your varicose/ spider veins. Oh, the office is clean and Covid-safe! I actually looked forward to my office visits!”
#3. Does the vein center have board-certified vein doctors with sufficient experience?
You must also ask if your chosen vein center’s physicians are board-certified with sufficient experience. The American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine recognizes the country’s top 1% vein doctors — a gold standard that only the most talented vein doctors can achieve. Board certification provides an objective guarantee that the vein doctor has passed several challenging tests and professional milestones, making them the ideal physicians for you.
The Spider Vein and Varicose Vein Center, LI, is led by some of the country’s most talented board-certified vein specialists. They individually select their vein doctors from leading medical institutions, Ivy League universities, and prestigious residency/ fellowship programs. Their vein doctors are required to undergo ABVLM certification, and they attend annual medical conferences and programs to stay ahead of the curve with vein treatments.
The vein center’s Lindenhurst location is led by Dr. Kamran Saraf, an incredibly talented and compassionate graduate of Georgetown University. The vein center’s Jericho location is led by Dr. Caroline Novak, a double board-certified physician specializing in venous medicine and internal medicine. The vein center’s Hamptons location is led by Dr. Thomas Arnold, an exceptionally skilled vascular surgeon with 25+ years of experience.
#4. Does the vein center perform sufficiently comprehensive evaluations?
Most vein problems, including spider veins and varicose veins, are symptomatic of an underlying circulatory disorder called chronic venous insufficiency. As such, the only way to ensure long-lasting results is to consult a vein doctor who thoroughly evaluates your condition before curating a treatment plan. The vein doctors at the vein centers in LI discuss your symptoms, review your medical history, and administer duplex ultrasound tests to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. This allows them to curate the ideal minimally invasive vein treatments.
#5. Does the vein center provide minimally invasive vein treatments?
You must only consider vein centers providing minimally invasive vein treatments instead of vascular surgeries. Minimally invasive procedures, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, clarivein, venaseal, and sclerotherapy, are safe, effective, and convenient. They conclude within an hour with no downtime, ensuring optimal results. The spider vein and varicose vein center in Long Island has a perfect track record with the latest minimally invasive vein treatments.
#6. Am I eligible for insurance coverage? Will the vein center help with my coverage?
If you’re considering vein treatment for your spider veins or varicose veins, you may be concerned about your insurance eligibility. Generally speaking, insurance coverage is available for vein treatments deemed medically necessary, i.e., if the vein treatment addresses chronic venous insufficiency rather than just the superficial vein problems. The spider vein and varicose vein center in Long Island provides free insurance verification, so you receive a complete breakdown of your treatment costs (with or without coverage) before your procedure.
