Scheduling Your Visit

Thank you for considering our vein clinic! Our vein center unique not only because of the highly-trained vein specialists we have but also because of how much we value your time. Your time with the doctor should never feel rushed or less than the time you spend in the waiting area!

Give us a call or email us for an appointment at contact@princetonvascular.com. Our patient coordinators will collect your insurance information to assess your coverage and schedule an appointment that is convenient for you.


Visit Day

When you arrive at one of our New Jersey locations, you will be greeted by one of our front desk team members. A brief intake form will be provided for you to complete and you can review our office forms. We also understand that sometimes the day can get hectic and it’s easy to fall behind schedule. No worries! We provide generous time allotments for each patient visit, so if you are running late, we just ask that you give us a courtesy call at (609) 257-2095 and we will do our best to keep you on schedule.


Initial Patient Evaluation

When you are ready to see a vein doctor, we are ready to help! After you check in for your appointment, our medical assistants will review your history, focusing on your vein concerns which may include spider veins, bulging varicose veins, leg pain, heaviness, swelling, bleeding, or itching from varicose veins. We want to know as much about you as possible so we can provide the best comprehensive vein care.

Meeting the Doctor

Meeting the physician is your opportunity to express what you want from your visit. We understand that you have many options for vein clinics in New Jersey, which is why we have prioritized the time you spend with our physicians. During your visit, the vein specialist will need to learn more about your symptoms and how they impact you. Your doctor may also determine the need for a venous ultrasound study based on your symptoms. This will help your doctor better understand the way blood circulates in your veins and what treatments will work best. Mostly, they want to better understand how they can help you feel and look your best.


What's Next?

Our board-certified vein doctors will review available treatment options for both medical and cosmetic concerns. Due to the complexities of each patient’s condition, there is not a one-size-fits-all vein treatment. As such, our vein clinics in New Jersey have prioritized the need to have all the latest technology available to perform the most innovative vein treatments. This includes sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, and VenaSeal. Treatment plans are customized to the patient’s goals, whether they are simply cosmetic or medical. For some patients, it’s just a matter of providing some peace of mind that no other significant issue is involved. With any type of condition, you can be sure that your care is being directed by a fellowship trained, board-certified vascular specialist.


Prior Authorization

Based on your initial consultation, your vein specialist will be able to determine if treatment is necessary and can be covered by medical insurance. Any medically necessary treatments for varicose veins will be submitted to your insurance company for authorization and coverage. This process may take up to 2-4 weeks. Once our vein center finds out your level of coverage, you will be notified of the decision to start scheduling treatments.


Billing

During your visit, you will also have the opportunity to speak with our billing team before any planned vein treatments. The goal is to provide complete transparency on insurance coverage and personal responsibilities. We are non-par with BCBS empire, Aetna, GHI, Cigna, United Healthcare, Oxford, BCBS Horizon, Magnacare. Our expert team will work on your behalf to make sure insurance coverage is maximized for your entire care. Medically necessary procedures at the Princeton Vascular Center are well covered by PPO insurance plans. You can rest assured that there will be no surprise bills or hidden costs.
