How can I choose the best vein doctor? There are now board exams in the treatment of veins. Passing the board exam does show a certain acumen in the treatment of veins. As well, doctors who specialize in vascular disease, such as vascular medicine doctors, vascular surgeons or some interventional radiologists, do show expertise in the treatment of veins. If it is for small spider veins, a patient might want to go see their dermatologist or a vascular specialist. If it entails treating larger veins, there are many different specialties, and you definitely want to go see a doctor who is credentialed or has years of experience in treating veins for vascular disease.
