During your consultation appointment, Dr. Ruz will take note of your medical history and will examine you. This will allow him to make a diagnosis and to explain the various treatment options and their risks. It is important to mention your expectations as they can be very different from one patient to another. Following the examination, Dr. Ruz will determine if the patient needs a Doppler, or if sclerotherapy treatments can start right away. He will estimate the number of treatments required. It is very important to understand that each patient responds differently to treatment and that it is impossible to accurately predict the total number of treatments at the first appointment. After a few sessions you will be able to judge if your body responds well to the treatments.
It is important to note that the first consultation is essential to an appropriate treatment plan. Often, patients may require the application of several therapeutic modalities to achieve adequate results.
