FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will treatment work for my vein problems?

A. Yes. Dr. Montague has many satisfied patients and has been in private practice in Fresno since 1976. He has treated venous problems exclusively full-time since 1997.

Q. Are there symptoms associated with untreated varicose veins?

A. When varicose veins go untreated, legs get achy, heavy, swollen and painful as the day goes on. In some cases you could experience cramping, itching or even restless leg syndrome. Often, patients don’t recognize them until the treatment has resolved the issues. In other cases, appearance is the main concern while symptoms may not occur.

Q. What could happen if I don’t get my varicose veins treated?

A. You could experience vein inflammation (phlebitis), edema or clots and bleeding. Skin can become damaged leading to ulcers or open sores that will not heal and a red or brown coloration around the ankles. 

Q. Will varicose veins go away without treatment?

A. Although it is a slow process, as time goes on the varicose veins will worsen without proper treatment.

Q. How do I know who to go to for my treatments?

A. To find the best care for your venous disorders, you will want to research doctors that have experience, dedication to venous disorders, certifications, the most up-to-date equipment, ACP membership and advanced training. A physician or friends may have recommendations as well. Once you find someone with the qualifications, schedule a consultation to make sure you feel secure with the doctor, staff and office.

Q. How much does treatment cost?

A. We provide an estimate to all of our clients based on their recommended treatment plan after their consultation. We will work with you and your insurance company to explain how the costs work out and what you can expect to pay. We accept most insurance plans.
