The Espinoza Vein Institute Difference
At Espinoza Vein Institute, our mission is to help our patients achieve optimum vein health.
Your vein health impacts your overall health.
Do You Have Vein Disease?
Our patients’ overall health matter to us, therefore, through our in-depth data gathering process and in-house diagnostic services, we determine if you have vein disease.
If you are diagnosed with vein disease, our very skilled and experienced Vein Care Specialists will educate you on your condition, determine the stage of your disease, and will work with you to develop a treatment plan that is specific to your condition.
Vein disease symptoms may include:
- Aching or throbbing legs
- Bulging veins
- Itching or burning skin
- Leg muscle cramps or restless legs
- Pain, heaviness, or fatigue
- Skin color or surface changes
- Swollen ankles and legs
- Leg ulcers, bleeding veins, painful veins
Discover treatment options for your legs, face and/or other vein concerns.
You are not a statistic to us! Your diagnosis and treatment plan will be explained to you in a way you can understand, with less technical jargon and more clarity, and your treatment plan will be designed to meet your specific needs. We treat our patients with care and compassion, in a warm and friendly environment. You’ll be educated on your condition and will also learn the steps you can take at home to improve your vein health.
At our clinic, we partner with our patients. This means that you are involved in the process, and your understanding of your condition and commitment to the treatment plan are important to us and for the improvement in your vein health.
The choice to be treated is yours! Our aim is simply to help you understand your diagnosis and to provide you with the treatment plan that is best suited for your specific need. We are open and transparent with our patients, and our records can withstand any scrutiny.
At Espinoza Vein Institute we offer a suite of vein treatment options. This is important to us because each patient is different, and we believe that there should not be one standard treatment plan for all patients. Therefore, it is our mission to always remain prepared with and skilled at the most relevant and up to date treatment methodologies so that we can provide the treatment option that best meets the specific needs of our patients.
We appreciate the inconvenience and stress involved in having to visit several facilities before being diagnosed and treated. This is why we provide most of your needed services in-house. At our clinic you can expect to receive advanced testing, diagnosis and treatment by skilled and experienced medical doctors and staff.
After a treatment procedure, you can return to your daily life. No anesthesia, no downtime required!
It’s an uncommon level of care you just can’t find anywhere.

Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen at my first visit?
Your first visit will be an evaluation of your symptoms/complaints and provide a diagnosis. All information about your symptoms, family history, medication and other health conditions, will be taken by a Medical Assistant. A medical doctor will then review your chart, conduct a physical exam (if required) and discuss your symptoms, and explain the diagnosis.
If you are diagnosed with vein disease, it may be recommended for you to have a diagnostic ultrasound to determine the location(s) of the disease, among other factors.
The diagnostic ultrasound is done at our facility and you will be scheduled (if you choose to) at the end of your first visit. An ultrasound is a non-invasive test performed by a qualified sonographer. Ultrasound uses sound waves to generate images of your veins and blood flow. These images help us find potential sources for your symptoms.
What should I bring to my first visit?
- Be prepared to explain your symptoms as clearly as possible.
- Bring a list of your current medications.
- Advise us if you’ve ever had a blood clot, leg injury, leg procedure, if you’re pregnant and/or if you have a family history of vein problems.
Am I at risk for vein disease?
Men and women can be at risk for vein disease. However, certain factors increase your risk level:
- Family history of vein disease or disorders
- Prolonged sitting or standing
- Recent leg injury or surgery
- Previous blood clot in the leg
- Overweight or obesity
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormonal replacement therapy or hormonal birth control
- Older age
If you have one or more of these risk factors or experience any symptoms of vein disease, be sure to see your primary care provider or an experienced vein care specialist.
